A Mother's Public Plea to Find Her Daughter Jessie Foster

A Letter From A Mother Desperately Trying to Find her Daughter: 

From Glendene Grant:

My daughter Jessie Foster is an international endangered missing woman whose case has been identified as a classic case of human trafficking – of modern-day sex slavery. Jessie has been missing from the Las Vegas area since March 29th, 2006 when she was just 21 years old – her 27th birthday is on May 27th, 2011. 

Jessie’s case has received a fair bit of media attention, but by no means has got the attention it deserves, considering the implications that come with being the victim of human trafficking – of having been beaten and forced to work for an escort agency – of having been arrested, charged and convicted of solicitation of prostitution – and of being kidnapped and taken away somewhere. Jessie is either still being forced into prostitution or she has been murdered, I don’t know what has happened to her. But what I do know is that Jessie NEEDS to be found either way. 

There have been many women who have gone missing in Sin City. Too many, just like everywhere, but in Las Vegas there is a sigma put on some of them who are ‘known’ to have been a prostitute. No one bothers to check the facts to see if any of these women were forced into it, they just figure that they were living a ‘high-risk lifestyle’, so no wonder something bad happened to them. Three women in particular, besides Jessie, who have gone missing since 2003 are Misty Marie Saens, Jodi Marie Brewer and Lindsay Marie Harris.

 All four women have arrest records for prostitution, all four women went missing from the Las Vegas area. Misty, Jodi and Lindsay were found between several weeks and several years later – all were deceased and all were found along a deserted highway in garbage bags in Nevada (Saens), California (Brewer) and Illinois (Harris). 

When they were found, it was just their torsos and/or legs – no heads and no arms (meaning no dental records or fingerprints could be used to identify these women). Jessie has never been found. Misty, Jodi and Lindsay were all last seen outside their homes, making them possible victims of a truck driver serial killer. 

Jessie was last seen in her home and all her belongings went missing when she disappeared, making the truck driver scenario not very likely.

 MISTY MARIE SAENS – missing since March 2003 from Las Vegas, Nevada. The name of the dismembered woman found along a deserted Nevada highway in the Las Vegas Valley was unknown for two years, when she was finally identified as Misty in 2005. 

UNSOLVED  JODI MARIE BREWER – missing since August 14, 2003 from Las Vegas, Nevada. The name of the dismembered woman found along a highway in San Bernardino, California was unknown for three weeks, when she was identified as Jodi through her tattoos; a hummingbird above her left breast and the letter “M” on her lower back.

UNSOLVED LINDSAY MARIE HARRIS – missing since May 5, 2005 from Las Vegas, Nevada. The name of the woman whose severed legs were found off a highway in Springfield, Illinois on May 23, 2005 was unknown until May 2008 when Jane Doe was identified as Lindsay through a tattoo on her thigh. UNSOLVED  JESSICA “JESSIE” EDITH LOUISE FOSTER – missing since March 29, 2006 from Las Vegas, Nevada. STILL MISSING 

Oh, don’t get me wrong, there are many more – but for this writing, I am only mentioning these women. Now, there is a very distinct difference in Jessie’s case (besides the obvious – she has not been found, alive or dead) and that is the details of her disappearance. First off, Misty, Jodi and Lindsay all went missing from outside their homes. All their belongings were still in their homes as they were left – as if the women would be home later. We reported Jessie missing and that she was last heard from while at her home and almost all of her belongings went missing with her.

NOTE: Jessie was planning on returning to Canada to attend a family wedding reception and her things were packed. The only things of Jessie’s that were still in the house were her hair-dryer and her make-up, two things that Jessie would never leave behind on purpose. We know she was already packed, it was one of the things she told her sister during the last time we ever heard from her. We also know that women will pack their belongings the night before, leaving their hair products and make-up out so they can use them in the morning . . . the usual scenario would be to get up; take a shower; do their hair & make-up; pack their hair products & make-up; and then leave. 

Now there has been another Las Vegas missing woman in the news in the past week or so, Debbie Flores Narvaez. Debbie is a dancer who just recently earned the spot of solo dancer the Luxor Hotel and Casino’s show, FANTASY, beating out over a hundred other women who auditioned for this exclusive spot (the Luxor is the same hotel that Lindsay was ‘apparently’ heading to when she was last heard from in May 2005). It is certainly not very likely that Debbie chose to leave – so obviously that means something has happened to her.

 We need to let people know that past the beautiful lights and fun-loving times that can be had in Las Vegas is something sinister. After all, its nickname is SIN CITY. Does that not say something right off the top? Does that not bother all the law-abiding citizens of the world who go to Sin City? Because, as everyone knows, WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS STAYS IN VEGAS! 

And now – DEBORA “DEBBIE” FLORES NARVAEZ – missing since December 12, 2010 from Las Vegas, Nevada. STILL MISSING   

There is a $50,000 Reward being offered.  Please help me bring my daughter Jessie Foster home!

From my understanding, Ms Foster is presumed to be one of the deceased found outside of Las Vegas. This is more consistent with correlative evidence than with a "human trafficking" scenario. Either way, this is a most tragic story.

The girls found deceased outside of Las Vegas had all been ID'd and Jessie was not one of them. The correlative evidence does not point to her having gone in the same way the other girls because all those girls had all their belongs left behind in their homes where Jessies stuff was *all gone* like she'd packed up to move... All except for the 2 things no girl leaves behind her makeup & her blow dryer! Young women are bought & sold all the time & their former lives left behnd & they're stuck, it's not something we want to think can happen in the US but it happens all the time. I think Jessie had a little to much support behind her & they could have sold her off to any where to separate her from her family & to isolate her.
