    The Scottsdale Police Department told FOX10 on Saturday that Conger's car was discovered in San Carlos on Thursday, about 100 miles east of Phoenix.

    Patricia Conger, his sister, shared on Facebook that his Toyota Camry was found with the keys in the ignition, with hunting and fishing gear inside.

    [...]

    "Jesse’s pistol is not there," she wrote.

    His sister said Saturday that family members are working to find help from search dogs or "more specifically, cadaver dogs."

    Police find vehicle of veteran who went missing in Scottsdale
    [...]

    Conger’s twin sister, Patricia, told KTAR News in August that Jesse talked about harming himself in the days leading up to his departure.

    [...]

    “He was paranoid,” Patricia said of her brother’s recent behavior. “He thought people were following him. He thought that he needed to protect his family.”

    He has two children who live with their mother in Las Vegas.

    Initially, it was thought Jesse could be headed to Mexico, but Patricia said at the time she no longer believed that was the case.

    Missing Marine’s family relying on tribal government for help
    The twin sister of a missing Arizona Marine veteran said Sunday night she was grateful to get help from officials at the San Carlos Indian reservation.

    “I'm just so amazed and grateful to them for continuing the search,” said Patricia Conger, whose brother Jesse Conger went missing from his Scottsdale apartment in August.

    [...]

    “It is their jurisdiction, and now as I understand, sacred land, and I appreciate their help,” Patricia said.

    [...]

    According to Patricia Conger, the sedan was found with a full tank of gas. Photos from inside the car show it cluttered with papers and loose change. The car is covered in dust, inside and out.

    Have there been any updates on this case? I haven’t seen anything in the local news in quite a while.

    After a quick google search, I found this post on Jesse's family facebook page they set up for his case. Patricia Conger, Jesse's twin sister posted:

    "... Our family and Jesse’s closest friends are in agreement with my assessment of what happened:
    On August 14, 2019, Jesse took his firearm, the two bottles of pills, Xanax and Tramadol, and drove into the middle of nowhere and took his own life.
    ...
    1.) He purchased Xanax, a dangerous drug that he knows makes him paranoid and forgetful, and started taking high doses of it.
    2.)He left his service dog Oreo, money, and all means of communication in Natasha’s apartment.
    3.)He drove in the exact opposite direction of his children.
    4.) He drove until he came to a section of desert with no lights and turned down a small, dark dirt road.
    5.) He drove to the very end a treacherous road that he knew would be impossible for him to drive back out of.
    6.) He got out and walked away from the car.
    7.) When he got to the place he was going, he swallowed all the pills and if that didn't kill him, he had his pistol as back up."​

    As of right now, it doesn't appear that Jesse has been found. However, as evidenced by this Facebook post, it appears that he is now presumed deceased. Deepest condolences to Jesse's family and loved ones.

    How incredibly heart breaking for Jesse’s family to believe this may have been how his life ended and these were his final moments.

    This is so sad and tragic. Regardless of the jurisdictional challenges they are going through, the Tribal Nations in the area are practically on lock down. The one near me in Northern Arizona isn't accept any visitors at all due to the coronavirus running absolutely rampant through their communities :(

    The twin sister of a missing Arizona Marine veteran said Sunday night she was grateful to get help from officials at the San Carlos Indian reservation.

    “I'm just so amazed and grateful to them for continuing the search,” said Patricia Conger, whose brother Jesse Conger went missing from his Scottsdale apartment in August.

    Jesse’s Toyota Camry was found in a remote desert area Saturday on the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation.

    Patricia said reservation authorities assured her they will take up the search for Jesse Monday in the surrounding desert.

    “It is their jurisdiction, and now as I understand, sacred land, and I appreciate their help,” Patricia said.

    Jesse Conger served tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. After returning home he suffered from PTSD and was suicidal, his family told 12 News.

    I should have been more precise in my question, my apologies. I was curious if there was any information about where exactly on the reservation his car was located. I've looked extensively and cannot seem to find that info.

    There is a Google map here where you can see where the family has already looked from early on before the vehicle was found.

    We are working on finding help from search dogs or more specifically, cadaver dogs. We’re keeping the location private so that the dogs can have a relatively undisturbed area to work in. If anyone is able to volunteer help with dogs, can you please get in contact with me? Either through messenger or on my phone 619-871-7097. Thank you.
