Jennifer Kesse

Jennifer Kesse was 24 years old when she went missing in Orlando in 2006. Jennifer’s car was gone, and her condo appeared to family members as if she had gotten ready and left for work. Jennifer Kesse’s disappearance remains unsolved to this day, and there is no official suspect in the case.

Jennifer Kesse’s Disappearance

24-year-old Jennifer Kesse was a resident of Orlando, Florida. She had just recently bought a condominium while employed as a financial analyst by Central Florida Investments Timeshare Company.

Jennifer Kesse’s employer got in touch with her parents, Drew and Joyce, on January 24, 2006, at 11:00 AM about her absence from a crucial office meeting. This was very unusual for Jennifer. She lived a life of commitment to her career and was incredibly sincere.

She had vanished

When Jennifer’s parents drove three hours from their home to her condo to look for her, they discovered that her 2004 Chevrolet Malibu had gone missing. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary inside her condo, and the presence of a wet towel and clothes on the floor suggested that Jennifer had showered, dressed, and prepared for work that morning.

Jennifer usually communicated with her boyfriend Rob Allen before leaving for work, either by phone or text message — but she didn’t contact him at all that morning. Rob attempted to contact her several times that day, but all of his calls went to voicemail.

Investigation of Case

Investigators initially theorised that Jennifer left her apartment for work on the morning of January 24 and locked her front door, only to be abducted at some point while walking toward or getting into her car.

Police began an investigation into the numerous construction workers in the area where her apartment complex was located. When Jennifer moved in, the complex was only halfway finished, and a number of workers lived on-site.

Joyce also remembered her daughter mentioning how she felt uneasy at times because the workers whistled at her and harassed her. However, the police investigation yields no new information. Friends and family later distributed flyers, and a large search party was organised to find her, but to no avail.

Her black 2004 Chevrolet Malibu was discovered parked at another apartment complex about a mile away from her own on January 26 at 8:10 a.m. Detectives discovered valuables inside the car, indicating that the motive was not robbery. The car had also been nearly completely wiped down. Her cell phone could not be pinged because it was turned off, and her credit card had not been used since her disappearance.

Person Of Interest

Investigators were ecstatic to learn that several hidden cameras at the apartments monitored the area where the car was parked as well as the exit. Surveillance video showed an unidentified “person of interest” dropping off Jennifer’s vehicle around noon on the day she went missing. Nobody in her family or circle of friends recognized the person, whose physical features were obscured by the video.

The best video capture of this subject was obscured by the complex fencing, as the camera was programmed to take photos every three seconds, and each time a frame was captured, the suspect’s face was obscured by the gate post.

The FBI and NASA attempted to assist in identifying the man in the video, but the only thing they could confirm was that the suspect was between 5’3″ and 5’5 inches tall. According to one journalist, the suspect is “the luckiest person of interest ever.”

Jennifer Kesse had a good life.

Jennifer was not suffering from any mental illness or depression. Jennifer had gone on vacation with her boyfriend on Saint Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, the weekend before she vanished. When she returned on Sunday, she spent the night at her boyfriend’s house before driving straight to work on Monday, January 23, 2006.

Jennifer left work at 6 p.m. that day and called her father on her way home at 6:15 p.m. She also called her boyfriend later that night, at 10:00 p.m., when she was at home. During their conversations, neither of them noticed anything out of the ordinary. So her sudden disappearance is undoubtedly an intriguing crime case that remains unsolved.

The Later Investigations

Joyce and Drew Kesse decided to investigate on their own in 2018, twelve years after Jennifer’s disappearance and with no new leads. Following a successful court battle to obtain all of Jennifer’s case files, they are now using their own private investigator to search for Jennifer.

On November 8, 2019, police spent two days searching for clues at Lake Fischer in Orange County after receiving a tip from the Kesse family investigator. Jennifer’s condo is 13 miles from the lake. The search was prompted by a tip from a woman who remembered seeing something strange around the time Jennifer vanished. A man drove a pickup truck to the lake and dumped a six to eight-foot piece of what appeared to be rolled-up carpet in the lake before driving away.

Police have not disclosed any other information from this search or if they have found anything significant. Police and Jennifer’s parents continue to search for her.
