    I still really struggle with what's considered appropriate by the site TOC, but these are public pages or "stories" on social media...as in I don't have accounts with the big three social media sites, but am able to see these publicly shared pages when I searched for Jessica's name.

    Her cousin Stephanie put an appeal on the Missing Persons Network yesterday. The family seem to disagree with husband as to when she was last seen.

    No updates from MSM or NOPD.
    No searches being planned.
    Hopefully, the silence indicates that LE is actively investigating Jessica's disappearance.

    Maybe one of the family members will join us and become verified? It would seem at this point to be the only way we are going to get any information.

    How active is active? :(

    I don't know how active the family is, seems they mostly live in another state. Maybe they need press and TV coverage.

    And apart from the Twitter post, which wasn't exactly an appeal either, seen nothing forthcoming from husband.

    It appears very much as if the police only became involved because the friend kept on at the NOPD to check her house as hadn't heard from Jessica.

    NOPD then attended house to do wellness check, and presumably there spoke with husband.

    Which begs the question why hadn't HE contacted them? And, why has he since not put out any appeal?

    Two weeks tomorrow since she was last seen or spoken to by family or friends, though husband of course says he saw her up until 1pm on the Wednesday. Make your own minds up what is going on there. Did she just go incommunicado over Tuesday/Wednesday, or was there another reason for her silence?

    Are there any Websleuths members who live in or near NOLA?

    This case is one that has me remembering Jaren Lockhart. Her daughter must be 10 today.

    Oh gosh I followed that case, hadn't thought about it in a while. I'll never forget the couple who killed her.

    Any of you locals have a media contact or someone who would be willing to put together a vigil to bring more awareness?

    New Orleans is known to be dangerous. But this area is one of the only areas in Orleans Parish that is still considered pretty safe. It is sought after and expensive real estate. I would really doubt anything happened to her in the day without anyone seeing.

    People in this area are also vigilant about their neighborhood. There is even a facebook page that they watch for and report crime. I will have to look if anything is posted. I say that because tons of people have cameras or door cameras. My brother lives right there and does.

    We also have Project NOLA that could possibly help. They have access to all the cameras who give them permissions and they help track crime. They give info to the police. I have a sneaking suspicion that the police already know what's up here. And I dont think it had anything to do with a vanishing human at the 1pm nap hour.

    It would be weird to go to city park in the day and randomly drown in any of the water. Real weird.

    I also worked in mental health for 16 years. I had a hard time getting real.live emergencies admitted because we have no mental health system left here. So, naw. She didnt go walk in and check herself in anywhere for 2 weeks. Not happening here. They damn near let you go if you're homicidal but maybe didnt get the weapon yet.

    Just a follow up. The Lakeview crime watch page does have a post about her. You can see they often ask people for video. I'm thinking this has happened already, behind the scenes. I am hoping they got video following a path...... of her walking or any activity since she was last seen home.
