Details of Disappearance
John was last seen on November 16, 1996 with his mother, Sandra. The two were leaving a relative's home in the vicinity of the 1100 block of University Drive in Bismarck, North Dakota. They were riding in Sandra's car, a gray 1990 Honda Civic, and planned to purchase gasoline and then return to the residence. The Jacobsons did purchase fuel, but they never returned and neither have ever been heard from again.
Sandra's car was found abandoned the next day, at the Centennial Beach parking lot near to the Missouri River in Bismarck. There was no sign of John or Sandra at the scene. The driver's side door of the car was open, the keys were in the ignition, and Sandra's purse was sitting on the front seat, its contents undisturbed. Police searched the beach and the river and found a shoe that might have belonged to John.
Sandra had been showing signs of mental illness prior to her disappearance and had agreed to seek treatment. Authorities believe she may have taken John and jumped into the river.
John's parents were separated in November 1996. Police say there is no evidence pointing to foul play in John and Sandra's cases, and they have never had a suspect. There was a possible sighting of Sandra and John in Warroad, Minnesota in June 2004, but this has not been confirmed. Sandra and John's cases remain unsolved. They were declared dead sometime after their disappearances.
