Car of missing US Marine in Arizona found, Veteran still missing

Law Enforcement in Arizona has found a car belonging to U.S. combat veteran Jesse Conger who has been missing for more than five months.

Conger, 37, was last seen with his girlfriend, Natasha Harwell, the morning of August 14 at his apartment in Scottsdale. Harwell reported him missing the next day, and his family said he’d been suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and depression.

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.

His sister, Patricia Conger stated on Facebook that three men working in eastern Arizona found Jesse’s car on Thursday morning and that they called police and texted her at 10 am. When talking to locals the police were told the car had been there more than a month. The rail crew had been there the day before but didn’t notice it because of the terrains and color of the car.

“Apparently the morning sun happened to reflect off of a break light that shined in one of their eyes that made them notice it when they did. All the rain has washed away all tracks of any kind, “Conger said. “The car had the keys in the ignition, and Jesse’s maps, and fishing/hunting gear is still there. Jesse’s pistol is not there. I haven’t been able to confirm if the Xanax or Tramadol was there.”

Anyone with information of the whereabouts of Jesse Conger is asked to contact the Scottsdale Police Department.
