My first shorthand version for those without audio (copied from another subforum);
Basically, Jessica cooks Brad from the get-go; "I don't know if he'd do something to her". It's out of character for her to blow me off. "I don't know if he's been violent with her in the past", but I'm scared that he's harmed her. "They're going through a messy divorce"; I don't believe him, when he says that she went running, she might have because she's a runner, but I'm not sure that I believe him.
(Generalizations and paraphrased quotes, by me)
And in another post, I said; "I think Jessica's call completely rules her out as a suspect..."

"She was supposed to be at my house at eight and just because of the situation with the divorce, I'm just wondering – I don't know what I should do," the caller says.
The caller tells dispatchers that Nancy Cooper's husband, Brad Cooper, told her his wife went out early for a run – he believed with her friend, the caller says -- but the caller says it was "weird" that Cooper had not returned.

"Because of the situation of the divorce...I don't know what to do," said the caller. "There's been a lot of tension...so I wouldn't be surprised."

A lot of fear in Jessica's voice...about several things.

I think Jessica KNEW something had happened, she just didn't WANT to go there.
Did you all catch, it was Jessica who had checked with hospitals before calling 911!
Another piece of information, imo, Brad forgot to put on his 'staging' list.

Because she doesn't say that she's in her car and we've had nothing to make us believe that would've been, I also wonder if the person to whom she refers when the tape jumps (or a name is edited-out) can see the house.

No need to answer, LOL. I think I already know what it is!
PS......wonder if old Brad is feeling the heat!? ehhhh.......bet he's on his little ole laptop right now, seeing what the reaction is to the release of the 911!
PPS.......ahhh......I think I see his attorney calling the media for another press conference on behalf of his client!

Do we know for sure if Brad told the police she went out for a jog at 7, or is this what Jessica said he said?

In case anyone is interested...
There's just so much in Jessica's phone call that I've edited-out my off-handed comment concerning theories in one of my previous posts and using this call as a foundation, I've posted one of my own to the "theories" subforum.
Essentially, Jessica sounds like possible violence was one of the first things to cross her mind and whomever else was sitting there had come around in the same direction. Because Brad looked more like a mouse than a lion in his public appearances, I've pretty much gone in the direction of an accident with a bad attempt at cover-up, but it's what I got from the call.
Nonetheless, obviously the release and non-seal of this particular 911 call is another way for LE to apply pressure.

I agree. If he had known that N & the kids were supposed to be at J's at 8 a.m., he wouldn't have said that she went jogging at 7 a.m. since she couldn't possibly be back & over to J's by 8 a.m. Immediately J started worrying because she knew there was no way that N would go running at 7 am when she was going to be at her house at 8 am.
Plus, J was worried because she knew N drove to where she started running & J seemed to think it highly unusual (as per the 911 call) that 1) her car was in front of her house while she was supposed to be running, and 2) her cell phone was at home.
N going running at 7 a.m. seemed so implausible to J that she was very, very worried.....
BTW, I'm very impressed with you all. I've been reading since N was reported missing, but didn't get on until now. I'm in the area & read your brilliant insights & thoughts when Michelle Young was murdered, too. But, since this is SO close to home, I thought I'd actually respond to Magister & Sue's statements (rather than waiting for something brilliant to say, which may or may not ever come!). Thanks for all that you do here.

She states on the tape that she (NC) was suppose to be there no later than 9. That can be heard at the 2:08 mark of the tape.
Right after that the tape cuts out. It sounds like she was told that she'd (NC) be there between 8 and 9.
An hour run can be anywhere from a 6 mile run to a much higher amount depending on her ability.
It depends on what type of run she had planned for that day. She could have planned for an easy run which is part of training for a marathon or a half marathon.
There's no discrepancy in the times. It all seems very logical.
The obvious question is whether she even made it out the door for that run.
