Jessie Foster was convicted in Las Vegas of soliciting for prostitution in June 2005. Last September, she was charged with four more counts of that offence, investigator Mike Kirkman said. Her Prince Charming was married to a convicted prostitute and he had been found guilty of spousal abuse. Associates of Foster told Kirkman that Peter had beaten her up and that they'd seen the bruises. "I think you can draw your own conclusions as to what he may be," Kirkman said. "In English, it's called a pimp." Peter is the only person police know of in the Las Vegas area to question in connection with Foster's disappearance, Bedwell said. Peter told The Province he has no involvement with the prostitution business and that he never physically abused Foster. "I don't give a s--t what the h**l they say about me," Peter said. "When I met Jessica Foster, she was a hooker.

Witnesses describe observing Todd's many heated arguments with Jessie Foster.

Friends head to Vegas in search of daughter: Young woman went missing six months ago

The Daily News (Kamloops)
Thursday, October 5, 2006
Page: A5
Section: City & Region
Byline: Jason Hewlett
Source: The Daily News

Four years ago Brenda Rose lost a son. Now she's helping her best friend find a daughter.

"I had a son who died. If I could do anything to bring him back I would," Rose said.

"What happened to us was bad but at least we have closure and know where our son is. Glendene doesn't and it's driving her crazy."

On Oct. 13, Rose and Glendene Grant travel to Calgary to sort through a storage unit belonging to Grant's daughter, Jessie Foster. The hope is there will be some clue as to why Jessie vanished in Las Vegas more than six months ago.

The women fly to Vegas on Oct. 14 with more than 2,000 posters and the determination to talk to anyone and everyone connected to Jessie's disappearance. The duo plan to spend four days in the city.

Rose said Grant was there for her when her son, James, 17, was run over while riding his bike on Pinantan Road in 2002. Accompanying her friend to Vegas is the least she can do to return the favour.

"I want to find some peace for Glendene. She's never going to be able to stop or rest until she knows what happened."

Jessie was last heard from by her older sister on the night of March 28. She went to Las Vegas a year prior to her disappearance for a vacation, extended her trip, and eventually decided to move there.

Grant said she believes Jessie is being held against her will and has been forced into a life of prostitution.

Before her disappearance, family members received a text message, e-mail or phone call from her on a daily basis.

The last person to see Jessie was Peter Todd, the pimp-boyfriend she lived with in North Las Vegas. According to Grant, the two had a rocky relationship, consisting of fights and yelling.

Todd was separated from his wife, a prostitute, who threatened Jessie on at least one occasion, according to reports.

Grant said sorting through Jessie's things will renew her energy for Vegas.

"Who knows what's there. She knew what was going on even if we didn't," she said.

Once in Vegas she will talk with Todd's neighbours. She wants to know when the fighting occurred and when it stopped. Other stops include newspaper offices and TV stations.

"I have to do something so I know I've done it all," Grant said.

to see her picture!

This is an article from the Las Vegas sun website:

April 21, 2006

Tom Gorman on when parents learn their missing daughter was a Vegas call girl

Las Vegas call girls are not likely to tell their moms and dads what they do for a living. It would break too many hearts.

Jessie Foster's parents learned the hard way, from a private eye. He was hired after Jessie disappeared from a North Las Vegas home with all of her belongings.

And now they are numbed by fear that she is in danger, or is dead.

Jessie left her Canadian home nearly a year ago, around the time of her 21st birthday, for what her parents thought would just be a whirlwind tour of the states. She ended up in Las Vegas. With her good looks and casual conversation, she turned eyes and easily made friends here.

In short order she moved in with a fellow named Peter Todd, a 39-year-old Jamaican national who lives in a half-million-dollar tract home in a swank North Las Vegas neighborhood. A neighbor said Peter has driven home some fancy cars - a Jaguar, a Land Rover, a BMW.

Jessie told her parents - Glendene Grant and Dwight Foster, who have been divorced for years - that Peter was a trust-fund baby. He had enough money to take care of her so she wouldn't have to work, she said.

Jessie used to call her father every week, and her mom even more often. She text-messaged her big sister almost daily.

The last time they saw Jessie was over Christmas, when she went home to visit her dad in Calgary, and her mom in Kamloops. She sounded happy and looked good. They asked her to think twice about returning to Las Vegas, but she wouldn't be stopped.

In late March, Jessie's phone calls stopped. Her parents called the fellow she had been living with, Peter. He said he last saw Jessie on April 3. Next thing he knew, he said, she was gone and so was all of her stuff.

She hasn't used her cell phone or her credit cards since late March. Her bank accounts haven't been touched.

Jessie's mom filed a missing persons report with North Las Vegas police on April 9. And for the past two weeks her parents have waited for news, filled with growing dread.

In the absence of any signs of foul play, police don't spend too much time looking for adults just because they haven't recently talked to their families. But the cops did talk to Peter Todd.

Peter told an investigator that Jessie was a prostitute, according to the missing persons report. A local private eye, Mike Kirkman, had learned the same information, and told the parents. They were heartsick.

Police talked to Peter again this week.

I called Peter on Thursday. He was coy, and sounded a lot more concerned about his own skin than Jessie's.

"I have no idea where she is and I told police that," Peter told me. "She always leaves. Yeah, I'm worried, but now I'm worried more for me. I had an interview with the cops yesterday, as a 'witness.' What am I a witness to? I've got this investigator calling, making it sound like I had something to do with it, or that I'm going to be in trouble."

I asked Peter what he knew about Jessie's lifestyle and how she made money. She couldn't get a legitimate job, he said, because she doesn't have a Social Security number.

Peter said that by examining all the action on Jessie's cell phone, it should be obvious what Jessie did for a living. But he wouldn't elaborate.

I asked bluntly, was she a prostitute? "If she was, that was her business," he said. "Her dad asked me that and I told him, man to man, that I don't know, and that's not something I'll discuss with anybody's parents."

Could he explain Jessie's disappearance? No, he said, except that she's left before. She has other friends. She went to San Francisco once, without warning. He conceded that she would always call him after a few days and that this time, there's been no contact.

"It's spooky as h**l and it makes me kind of nervous, her not being in contact with anybody," Peter said. "Either something happened to her, or she has just cut everybody off."

When asked what he did for a living, Peter did not mention a trust fund. He said he fixes, sells and races junk cars.

I told Peter that I had a photograph of him with Jessie, and would he mind if we published it because it might help trigger someone's memory. Don't you dare put my picture in the paper, Peter said.

"I got caught hookin' up with the wrong chick," Peter said. "With all the friggin' women in Las Vegas that I've hooked up with, I never ran into no kind of (stuff) like this before."

In Kamloops, Jessie's mother, Glendene, spends her days trying to piece together clues: whom Jessie has traveled with, whom she talked about in her phone calls home, whom she didn't get along with, fights and arguments with other women.

She struggled to reconcile that her daughter was a hooker. "At first, I thought she just had a rich boyfriend. I was sucked right into that story.

"But she wasn't a streetwalker," she said. "She was a top-level prostitute. She worked out of an escort service."

"Maybe she met a customer who did something to her - but wouldn't her stuff still be at home?" she said. "But if she decided to leave Peter, she'd have called us by now. Something is wrong."

Dwight Foster seems to be coping less well with his daughter's disappearance. He works for the province of Alberta as a workplace safety inspector, but he hasn't been to work this month.

"I feel like someone has reached in and taken my heart and left me a zombie. I've got nothing left but anger. I have considered the fact that I'll never see my girl again."

Please take a good look at Jessie's picture. Have you seen her?

Disappearance raises fears

Private eye tells horrified family
that daughter was working for
violent pimp.

Published: Friday, April 21, 2006
Ethan Baron, The Province

Private eye tells horrified family that daughter was working for violent pimp. A year ago, Foster arrived in Las Vegas on her way home from a trip to Florida with a friend. " he called me from Las Vegas and said, 'Mom, I like it here, I'm going to stay," Grant said. Foster soon met a man named Peter who told her he raced cars and came from a wealthy family. She moved into his expensive condo. "To Jessie he was like PrinceCharming," Grant said. "What he was, he's just like a frickin' wolf." A private detective hired by Foster's dad, Dwight Foster, uncovered disturbing information. Foster, who had graduated from high school and went on to work as a waitress at Boston Pizza in Calgary and Kamloops, was convicted in Las Vegas of soliciting for prostitution in June 2005. Last September, she wascharged with four more counts of that offence, investigator Mike Kirkman said.

Daughter lost in Las Vegas
Private eye hired after woman, 21, disappears in U.S.

By Sarah Kennedy, Calgary Sun

His daughter's disappearance into the dark underworldof Las Vegas has a Calgary dad fearing the worst. With little help from Las Vegas police, Jessica Foster's parents have hired a Sin City private eye to hunt down the 21-year-old, who disappeared a month ago. And the family is getting some Hollywood help with news personality Geraldo Rivera set to do a piece on the disappearance. Dwight Foster said his daughter -- once a straight-A student -- travelled to Vegas in search of adventure a year ago but got lured into the murky world of the city's sex trade. "She moved out to Las Vegas with a girlfriend we didn't really know but she kept in touch with us daily, giving us updates on where she was and what she was seeing," said Dwight. Dwight said he started to question his daughter's lifestyle when he learned she was living with a boyfriend named Peter in an expensive house but didn't seem to be working. One month ago, all communication with Jessica stopped, leaving her panicked family wondering if she's still alive. When contact stopped, Grant and Dwight, who are divorced, called the Las Vegas police department. Dwight said the officers checked Peter's house. When there was no evidence of foul play, cops told the family there was not much else to investigate. The family took matters into their own hands and hired Mike Kirkland, a private investigator in Vegas who uncovered a darker side to the story. Kirkland learned Jessica had been working as a prostitute -- a stark contrast from the young woman who had never been in trouble and graduated from John Diefenbaker high school four years ago with top grades. The PI also found she had been badly beaten and hospitalized recently, as well as being charged with prostitution, said Dwight. He said he fears his daughter is in danger. "My deep-down thoughts is that she's not calling us because she can't. ... I feel it now that something bad has happened to her." A field producer for Geraldo Rivera's syndicated news program GeraldoAt Large interviewed the family this week. Anyone with information can call Kirkland at 702-897-6820.

With little help from Las Vegas police, the parents of Jessica Foster have hired a Sin City private investigator to hunt down the 21-year-old, who disappeared a month ago. And the family is getting some Hollywood help, with news personality Geraldo Rivera set to do a piece on the disappearance.

Dwight said he started to question his daughter's lifestyle when he learned she was living with a boyfriend named Peter in an expensive house, but she didn't seem to be working. "She told us this Peter guy's family was rich and that he was supporting her," he said. But Dwight kept his suspicions in check because Jessica sent daily text messages to her sisters and her mother, Glendene Grant, who live in Kamloops, B.C. One month ago, all communication with Jessica abruptly stopped. When that happened, Grant and Dwight, who are divorced, called the Las Vegas police department. "We filed a missing person's report. They said they recognized she was missing, but that she's an adult and as far as they're concerned, there's no crime scene," said Dwight. Dwight said the officers checked out Peter's house and when there was no evidence of foul play, they told the family there's not much else to investigate. Which is why the family took matters into their own hands and hired Mike Kirkland, a private investigator in Vegas who uncovered a darker side to the story.

U.S. search more grim each day
PI hopes Geraldo show will lead to tips in search for Calgary woman

By Sarah Kenney, Calgary Sun

The chances of finding Jessica Foster alive in the Las Vegas underworld are less likely as time passes, said the private eye hired to find her. Mike Kirkman is on the hunt in Sin City for the 21-year-old Calgarian who, after almost a year of daily contact with her family back home, hasn't been heard from in a month. "Each day that passes, the prognosis is grimmer," said Kirkman, a 25-year PI. "I'm trying to resolve the case to give the family answers but we're not getting any co-operation from the person she lived with." Phone records show no calls have been made from Jessica's phone in about a month and she hasn't taken any money out of her back account, said Kirkman Foster's parents, Dwight Foster, a Calgary resident, and Glendene Grant, of Kamloops, called Kirkman to find answers. Through his investigation, he discovered Foster, formerly a straight-A student who avoided trouble, was sucked into the city's seedy sex trade. Hospital records show she was badly beaten at one point. The PI said he's hoping tonight's broadcast of the case on Geraldo Rivera's news show will help generate tips. "When these things break, you've got to follow every lead and it just takes one good one," he said. Det. Dave Molnar of the Las Vegas police department said they are still actively investigating the case. Foster went to the U.S. last year with a friend to do some travelling and eventually ended up in Las Vegas. A trust fund called Jessica Foster in Trust has been set up at the CIBC bank in Kamloops to help cover the cost of the private investigator. Anyone with information can call Kirkman at 702-897-6820.

Wedding marred by fear Family nuptials go on despite woman missing
By Sarah Kennedy, Calgary Sun

Dwight Foster's secret wish is that his missing daughter Jessie Foster will show up in Calgary today for her stepsister's wedding. But deep in his heart, he knows that won't happen. "She was supposed to be here right now," he said yesterday. Even if the 21-year-old got drawn into the sex trade underworld of Las Vegas, she would come home for the wedding if she could, said Dwight. And that's the fear gnawing at him day and night -- what has happened to the Calgary woman? "It's tearing me up that I didn't find out more about the people she was travelling with," he said. Jessie had been living with a boyfriend in Vegas for about a year and had daily contact with her family back home until a month ago when communication stopped. Her phone records show she's made no calls and there's been no money taken from her bank account. Dwight and Jessie's mom Glendene Grant hired private eye Mike Kirkman to hunt down the missing woman in Sin City. He learned she had been working as a prostitute and was, at one point, beaten so badly she was hospitalized. The tidbits of information have given Dwight hope but as time passes, that's fading and is replaced by fear the family won't be able to continue to afford Kirkman's fees.

Donations can be made in Trust of Jessica Foster at any CIBC bank.

'She just left'

Las Vegas man puzzled about what happened to missing Calgary woman
By Sarah Kennedy, Sun Media CALGARY

Jessica Foster didn't seem to be in any trouble in Las Vegas before she vanished, says a man who lived with her. James Todd said Foster had been dating his twin brother Peter and lived with them in Las Vegas before she disappeared more than a month ago. "It's pretty sad the way she just left and no one seems to know where she went," he said. "I've been asking myself since this started, where is she? And why hasn't she contacted anyone?" James said he hasn't heard from Jessica in more than a month and as far as he knows, neither has his brother. While living with Todd for almost a year, Foster, 21, had daily contact with her father Dwight in Calgary and her mother Glendene Grant, who lives in Kamloops, B.C But communication completely stopped in late March. Foster's phone records show she's made no calls and there's been no money taken from her bank account. Dwight and Grant hired private eye Mike Kirkman to hunt down the missing woman in Sin City. He discovered the disturbing news that the once straight-A student from a loving family had been working as a prostitute in Vegas and was, at one point, beaten so badly she was hospitalized. James said when he moved in with the couple in order to save money to get his own place, he had no idea what Foster did for a living. "My assumption was that she was a stripper," he said. "I'm shocked but this seems to be a quick way to make a buck in Vegas and I'm not going to pass judgment on what she chose to do for a living." James said he kept to himself while living with the tumultuous couple. "Jessica and Peter had a lot of arguments and that's not the environment I want to be in," he said. Along with Kirkman, Las Vegas police are also investigating the situation.

MUTUAL MISERY WHEN DAUGHTERS DISAPPEAR
By Abigail Goldman <abigail.goldman@lasvegassun.com>
Las Vegas Sun

Missing


Click here for a printable graphic.


You could say that Lindsay Harris' parents were somewhat uncomfortable when their 19-year-old daughter moved to Las Vegas. And you could say Jessie Foster's parents felt the same when their daughter, 21 and another thin blonde, left home in a similar fashion - suddenly, and on the arm of a man they barely knew.

But, like most good girls from small towns know they should, Harris and Foster phoned home all the time. Well-meaning, white-toothed and wide-eyed, the girls called their mothers, but always to talk around the truth: Harris said she was working as a dancer; Foster said her boyfriend supported them with his trust fund.

Both, in fact, were prostitutes. And their families would only find that out after each girl had suddenly vanished. Harris and Foster, strangers to each other, were swallowed by the Strip where they plied their trade, months apart but in much the same manner: whole, and without a trace.

Harris was last seen alive in May 2005; Foster disappeared in early April this year. Both had police records for prostitution, and both lived with boyfriends that nobody in their families exactly adored. Working girls, no less, in a city that sees certain types like tides.

Neither daughter has swiped her credit card, touched her bank account or used her cell phone since the last confirmed sightings. Neither has called her mother.

Still, without finding probable cause that a crime has occurred, police have gummed the cases as though Harris and Foster are just two more missing persons. Missing adults, detectives told the parents early on, sometimes want to get lost and stay so.

The families, now friends through mutual misery, quickly hired private investigators, and have accepted their daughters' lip-glossed, late-night mug shots. They have steeled themselves against the thought of their children crawling casinos for clients. But they refuse to believe their Lindsay and their Jessie would fall off the face of the Earth without a fight.

The private investigators, expensive as they are respected, second the parents' sinking dread: The women have been murdered, they say, and in both cases it's pretty clear someone knows more than they're letting on.

Harris was last seen in sweatpants and a ponytail by a bank surveillance camera on May 4, 2005. By then 21, she withdrew money and mailed a Mother's Day card.

She had moved to Vegas two years earlier to live with boyfriend Solomon Barron, a man she met at a concert outside her hometown of Skaneateles, N.Y. Harris' parents would learn she was missing before the Mother's Day card arrived.

Barron called Harris' family on May 7 - the first time he had ever called them - to say Lindsay was missing. The parents had met him just once, about five months earlier during a Christmas visit that now haunts them.

In his phone call, Barron, a self-described music promoter, told Harris' parents he hadn't been able to contact their daughter after she left him a voice-mail message in the early morning of May 6. In the message, he told her parents, Harris said that she was leaving the Monte Carlo and heading to the Luxor. Barron, in Syracuse, N.Y., at the time, said he tried unsuccessfully to call her back several times. Worried, he said, he flew back to Henderson, but never heard from Harris again.

Last Tuesday private investigator Tom Dillard, a former Metro Homicide detective who investigated the death of Benny Binion for the casino namesake's family, flipped through Harris' phone records in his downtown office. Harris called Barron all the time, sometimes every three or four minutes, Dillard said, until the day all calls abruptly stopped.

Dillard pointed to a spot in the two-inch case file he keeps on Harris.

May 5: Harris calls several utility companies. Paying bills or shutting off power? Dillard doesn't know.

May 6: Harris calls Barron at 1:12 a.m. The call lasts one minute, and most likely was a phone message.

"That's the last time we know she's alive," Dillard said.

Less than a week after that final call, Harris' black Mercedes was found abandoned in a parking lot near the Luxor.

Bob Harris, a special education administrator, doesn't remember if it was Dillard or the Henderson Police who first told him that his daughter was a prostitute. He and his schoolteacher wife, Martha, never had a clue.

"Part of it was just being naive. I guess we came to this small little upstate town we live in so that we wouldn't have to face the trials and tribulations of what real life can bring," he said. "Maybe we sheltered her too much. We found out that our daughter was mesmerized by that and taken in. Sucked into it. It's literally a parent's worst nightmare."

Lindsay Harris' twin brother didn't know either. But Barron knew, and Dillard discovered that the couple shared their Henderson rental home with at least one other young, blond woman - also a convicted prostitute with a rap sheet longer than Harris'.

Barron won't say if he's a pimp. He calls such a question irrelevant, one he's sick of being asked.

"Everybody wants to know, are you this, is she that? It's not rocket science. It's not rocket science what she does and what any of the girls I have been around do," he said Wednesday. "Everybody is not the same. Some people get married, go to college, have a picket white fence, but not everybody. All that is irrelevant - there is a young woman missing."

Barron figures Harris might have met a dangerous client, someone who maybe wanted the $7,000, heart-shaped watch Barron had given her. Moreover, he said, Harris had begged him not to leave town that weekend, possibly because she feared a "bad date." Barron calls Harris a "working girl" and "the best thing that ever happened to me."

But working girls, Solomon Barron reminds, sometimes go missing:

"Things happen, and we know this. It has been going on forever. Things happen to working girls. Everybody is acting like that is not the case. They're just looking down with tunnel vision - Solomon has something to do with it and Solomon knows, and a year and a half later, the whole investigation is lost. These girls have no hope."

With Barron's last point, at least, the Harris and Foster families agree.

Foster's parents learned she was missing in April but only found out about their daughter's escort agency employment after they hired private investigator Mike Kirkman. The parents, who live in Canada, say their daughter was swept off her feet and out of the country by a man who wooed her, then paid her way to New York City, Key West and finally Las Vegas.

For a 21-year-old woman of modest means, the vacationing, the posh restaurants, the yachts and the clothes were hypnotic - a lavish facade against which Foster's father, Dwight, said she had no defense:

"I think she was recruited. No girl grows up thinking, 'I am going to be a ho.' They get served up as queens. They put her in expensive hotels, showed her the world, dancing and swimming in the Caribbean Sea - this is the life they are shown. It's a recruitment, then they get shown the true lifestyle."

Jessie Foster broke off from her traveling companion in Las Vegas in May 2005 and started dating Peter Todd, living with him in his North Las Vegas home. Todd is the last person known to have seen Foster alive. He told police he left home early on April 3, returning in a few hours only to find that Foster had packed up and left; everything she had at the house was gone. The police interviewed Todd twice. With no signs of foul play, it remains an open missing-persons case but is on the back burner, said North Las Vegas police spokesman Sean Walker.

"(Detectives) will follow up on any leads that they get, but are they out walking the streets? No. That would not be productive," Walker said. "We have to work with different rules than private investigators. We have to deal in probable cause, and until we have that, this is going to be a missing-adult case."

Dwight Foster and Kirkman don't buy that, and said that Peter Todd knows more than he has said.

Todd told Kirkman and Foster's parents that he knows nothing of the girl's disappearance. In questioning, Todd told police he knew his girlfriend worked as an escort, but wouldn't confirm that to her parents. In April, two weeks after Foster's mother filled out a missing person's report, Todd told the Sun that he had made the mistake of falling in with the wrong girl.

"It's spooky as h**l, and it makes me kind of nervous," Todd said. "With all the friggin' women in Las Vegas that I've hooked up with, I never ran into no kind of (stuff) like this before."

Todd did not return a reporter's phone calls last week, and his home is for sale.

Before she disappeared, Foster told her family she was going to marry Todd. Last Christmas she visited them in Canada and, while she was there, Todd called 15 or 20 times a day, her father said. On occasion, Dwight Foster said, he would intercept 3 a.m. phone calls and beg Todd not to call so late during the work week.

"I would pick up the phone, and he would sit there in total silence. He wouldn't even speak to me," Foster said. "That's when I started to get the feeling that this guy is creepy. He said nothing. Nothing. He sat there and listened to me."

Jessie Foster assured her concerned parents they just didn't understand her relationship with Todd.

That relationship has been the subject of some speculation.

Private eye Kirkman said Todd had no discernible source of income and was much more than Foster's boyfriend. Todd's estranged wife is also a convicted prostitute and it is believed that, like Jessie Foster, she is Canadian.

In April, Todd said that he fixes junk cars to race and sell.

"I have no idea where she is," he told the Sun, "and I told police that."

Kirkman said he believes Foster was planning to leave Todd. Her co-workers at the escort service told the investigator they had seen Foster bruised and beaten. Privately, Kirkman discovered, Foster had opened a savings account in Canada and filled it with more than $10,000. The money sits untouched.

Jessie Foster is dead, Kirkman warned the family.

"You have to start making some mental adjustments," he said this week. "It's a big desert."

Two weeks after Lindsay Harris disappeared, a car rented in her name was discovered abandoned near the Henderson home she shared with Solomon Barron, parked not far from a wide expanse of undeveloped desert. At night, that desert becomes a black sheet of invisible earth, a vista that can be seen clearly from the home's second-floor rooms.

The undercarriage of the car, private investigator Dillard remembers, was damaged, as if someone had driven it carelessly over bumpy ground.

A Henderson Police fly-over was no help, and Dillard himself found nothing after trekking the rocky terrain.

"The vehicle, where it was abandoned and how it was abandoned, it was all very suspicious to me," he said. "I had a feeling I'd find a makeshift grave."

Still, he is convinced: "I think she was murdered. There will be a crime scene somewhere - put it that way."

After a few weeks, the family decided to have Dillard step down, fearing that too many investigators might make persons of interest nervous, said Lindsay's father, Bob.

"We don't want to get into a situation where people are stepping on each other, stepping over each other," he said. "We are in a bind. There is not a lot we can do. It's like playing poker. We can't stand up and show our total hand."

In January police again searched the desert landscape near the Harris/Barron home. Her parents flew in from New York again, this time to wait while some 250 volunteers combed the terrain in a grid. Martha Harris wore her daughter's vest and the gold cross she had bought to keep Lindsay safe in Las Vegas. The family didn't participate in the search - petrified of finding something, yet desperate to find something at the same time.

Pacing by the makeshift search headquarters, Martha Harris tread carefully around the family's relationship with Barron.

"He had an integral part of her being here," she said. "I think it was glamorous. He presented a glamorous, glitzy Las Vegas life. She didn't know what she was getting into, she was too young and naive. I knew he had a lot of money all the time, but I thought, you can make a lot of money here. Talk about naive."

Barron did not help search. He was at home, up the street, conducting interviews from his doorway. A short time later, he moved from the home, but said Wednesday that he hasn't been able to get very far.

"No one cares, and it's really like a slap in the face," Barron said. "If they did, somebody would try to listen to me instead of trying to point the finger at me and doing searches of my house. Now they are following me, now they are coming to my crib."

Henderson police won't release any details of the ongoing investigation, spokesman Todd Rasmussen said. Though still considered a missing persons case, detectives said it's likely Lindsay Harris met a tragic end.

"As a parent, I'm just grasping at straws," her father said this week. "I'm looking for any kind of connection that can bring us closer to the truth."

Neither family really believes Lindsay and Jessie are alive.

Their parents also believe their daughters' disappearances are no coincidence, but part of something much darker and deeper than one bad client.

"The fact that these two girls come from two totally different areas and disappear under the same conditions, with everything so similar, tells you how big this is, how ugly this is, how well connected this is," said Dwight Foster, Jessie's dad.

Bob Harris, Lindsay's father, said that the feeling is intuitive: "I believe whatever happened to Lindsay, whatever happened to Jessie, whoever did this - this is not the first time they have done it, and they absolutely know how to get away with it. It's a planned, packaged program and it's working. It's speculation, but theories run rampant. This is something that is not going to go away."

It's a sickening cycle: Not knowing, then knowing too much, then knowing nothing again.

And the dread that their daughters may have been lost even before they disappeared.

"This has shredded me to my core," Dwight Foster said. "I look at this all, and I shake with fury."

Message from Jessie's MOM Glendene

""I just got an email from Morgan Landau, a Maury Povich Show producer.
She had promised me that if we were not able to be on the show, they would definitely show her missing posters.
She just let me know that the show with Jessie's poster will be airing this Wednesday, October 11th.
Everyone will have to look up the listings to see when the Maury Show is on in their area that day, so we can all watch it.
LOTS of people in the USA will be watching this show and that is how many more people will be hearing about Jessie's story.
I am so grateful that this is happening.
Brenda and I are leaving for Calgary and then on to Las Vegas that same day, so I will have to get someone to tape it for me.
Take care and thank you all for your continued and full support in our search for Jessie.
Love Glendene. ""


Glendene will also be on Todd's radio show sometime in the near future

Disappearance brings sorrow to ChristmasUPDATED: 2006-12-21 01:20:26 MST


By SARAH KENNEDY, CALGARY SUN




It was Christmas Day last year when Glendene Grant last saw her daughter.

If it were up to her, Grant would prefer the holiday to slip by with no notice because without her daughter Jessie Foster, she said it's not worth celebrating.

"I wasn't going to celebrate it this year but my youngest daughter said we have to because that's what Jessie would want," she said.

Still, Grant said she couldn't bring herself to decorate the Christmas tree because it's full of ornaments that Jessie made.

"I couldn't even open the box," she said.

It was Christmas Day last year when Jessie boarded a plane to Las Vegas, where she had been living with a man named Peter Todd for several months.

Grant and her ex-husband Dwight Foster didn't realize their 21-year-old daughter, who had been a straight-A student, working two jobs, got involved in the underworld of Las Vegas and had been working as a prostitute.


It wasn't until they hired a Vegas private investigator, several months after all communication with Jessie stopped, that Grant and Foster learned the terrifying truth.

It's now been eight months and still no word from Jessie. Glendene said every day living has become a struggle.
