I watched this last night.  I'm glad her family is not giving up, and hope they know we haven't forgotten Jennifer. 

Episode is about 6 pages, found here if you missed the show:

Orlando Detective To Focus Full-Time On Jennifer Kesse Case

POSTED: 12:41 pm EDT August 15, 2008
ORLANDO, Fla. -- Channel 9 has learned that the Orlando Police Department is dedicating a detective full time to concentrate on the Jennifer Kesse case.

The Orlando woman was last seen at her condo in the Mosaic at Millenium complex in Orlando in January 2006. So far, police have not been able to uncover any clues as to what happened to her.

A person of interest was caught on surveillance cameras driving Kesse's car, but he has never been found.

The department now plans to track down every last lead no matter how minor it might seem.

Search Team To Help With Kesse Case
Equusearch Juggles Caylee Anthony, Jennifer Kesse Search Efforts

POSTED: 6:09 pm EDT October 10, 2008
UPDATED: 6:42 pm EDT October 10, 2008


ORLANDO, Fla. -- A Texas search team arrived in Central Florida on Friday to help search for Jennifer Kesse nearly three years after her disappearance.

Kesse disappeared nearly three years ago from her Orlando condominium.

On Thursday, Texas Equusearch came to assist in the search.

Police have had more then 950 leads in the case, but Kesse's mother, Joyce, said it's awareness people need to be reminded she's missing.

Jennifer Kesse would be 27 years old now.

"It's extremely hard," father Drew Kesse said. "I'll be honest. It's hard to be back in this city."

The missing woman's parents met with investigators Friday morning. They said there's been nothing new happen in the case, but they're grateful for the help from the search team.

"There are a lot of emotions going on," said Tim Miller of Equusearch. "We've got two children in basically the same area."

Equusearch is in town to help look for 3-year-old Caylee Anthony, and they've also been briefed on the Kesse case.

A few years ago, police combed a wooded area off John Young Parkway -- not far from Jennifer Kesse's condo where she was last seen. Texas Equusearch will take another look in that area.

"It's when we're going to do it," Miller said. "I think it's going to be a lot sooner than later."

Jennifer Kesse was last seen near her condo near the Mall at Millenia in January 2006.

"We're going to go out and take some rides around some of the areas to get a better grasp," Drew Kesse said.

Jennifer Kesse's car was found near Texas Avenue and Americana Boulevard. A few days later, surveillance was found of someone driving her car. Police said they don't know who was driving.

"With any luck, maybe we'll find something this time," Drew Kesse said. "As you know, with Joyce and me, we'll never give up. Jennifer is what it is all about."

Texas Equusearch members said they're not sure when they'll begin their search. They said they're still trying to coordinate the Kesse and Anthony searches.

This is the first time I've looked at this case. The surveillance pictures of the POI look like a female to me. I found this picture of I think a British hair style. This is what I see. Does anyone know if it has been determined to be a male or female for sure?

IMO it is a hat...not hair. The person has huge feet for a woman, imo.

I agree that the feet do look large to a woman's feet.  And that the person appears to be wearing a hat.

I remember watching a show about the case (I think 48 hours mystery) and they mentioned that the building that Jennifer was living in was having renovations done at the time.  The picture looks to me like someone dressed in painters clothes.  Which would fit with one of the people working on the building possibly being invoved.

Does anyone know if TES ever did that search for Jennifer when they were going to search also for Caylee Anthony?  I don't remember hearing another word about it?

The last I read, TES was to search for Caylee and Jennifer on November 8th.  TES website just mentions Caylee, but I know I've read it was for both...I'll see if I can locate the source.  It may have been through SM posters who have volunteered to help with that search.

Klaas posted an article above from earlier in the month....I also found similar info printed on orlandosentinal's site and like Red posted on the front page they both said there were to have a discussion about Jennifer's case including possible search plans.

Tim Miller said tonight on Dana's show that there would be two searches going on at the same time, Jennifer's and Caylee's.  If one is found, then the searchers would then go to search for the other missing person.  I hope this helps.

For Jennifer Kesse's family, news in Caylee Anthony case renews their hope for closure
George Diaz | COMMENTARY
December 19, 2008
For families of missing children, closure is a convenient euphemism. It never touches the jagged edges of pain, like a father who has looked at porn movies where women are tied up and beaten in a padded room, on the chance one of them might be his daughter.

Or a couple who had to wait 27 years before police in Florida officially identified a serial killer as the man who decapitated their 6-year-old son.

Or grandparents who returned home to Orlando last week with the realization that a skull and bones found near their home may be the remains of their granddaughter.

It's human nature, I suppose, to peek into graphic details of a true-life horror show without bothering about the nuances. But how can any family cope with a litany of unspeakable sins? The road leads to many places.

Drew and Joyce Kesse are in a twilight zone of a different kind. Their daughter, Jennifer, was thought to have been abducted nearly three years ago in the vicinity of the Mall at Millenia and is still missing. There have been more than 2,000 leads reported that have gone nowhere. The Orlando Police Department considers it an active case.

The Kesses push on. They've received close to 700 leads on their own, many of them addressed to a post-office box that was shut down more than a year ago.

The journey has taken them to strange places, opening doors to the dark underworld of porn to see if Jennifer had been abducted and forced into some form of sex trade. As bad as it's been, Drew Kesse knows that it's worse for others. Like a daughter who had to wait 26 years before authorities identified her mother's remains. They were stored in a locker at a morgue just a few blocks from her home.

"For this family, closure is everything. Period," Drew Kesse said Thursday. "For good or bad. Do we hope for the miracle? Absolutely. But we're very realistic. What we truly want is Jennifer to be found for her sake."

Not knowing is worse. It renders Christmas Day meaningless. The Kesses will gather with a few family and friends and ask themselves the same question they've asked over and over again:

"How do we do this?"

Advocacy is a therapeutic reaction. Similar to John Walsh, who became a tenacious criminal hunter as the face of America's Most Wanted, Drew Kesse has wrapped himself in helping others.

His fingerprints are on Senate Bill 502, the " Jennifer Kesse and Tiffany Sessions Missing Persons Act," which expands the Amber Alert system to send out notifications within two hours of any missing person under age 26. The bill was passed earlier this year with the help of Hilary Sessions, whose daughter, Tiffany, went missing on Feb. 9, 1989, in Gainesville, and has yet to be found.

There's a new cause now. Kesse is lobbying legislators for a bill that would require DNA testing for unidentified human remains in Florida. Right now, that's an option but not a requirement. Making it mandatory should help many families looking for answers, because DNA testing can identify human remains about 30 percent of the time.

It's important for Kesse because it's personal, in more ways than the obvious. He is respectful of all the attention lavished upon missing children but also wonders why adults who go missing don't always become a priority for law-enforcement officials.

"Why do we distinguish children from adults?" he asks. "I don't see why everyone isn't equal. When it comes to law, a person is a person. You are someone's child."

His child vanished near her south Orlando apartment on Jan. 24, 2006. The tears come and go, but they don't matter as much anymore. They are inconsequential.

"We still get to sleep, eat, shower," Kesse said. "But just think of what Jennifer has gone through. Our feelings don't count."

The uncertain journey continues. Drew and Joyce Kesse pray for closure, knowing that it might only bring more heartbreak.
