Parents of Tampa native missing from Orlando since 2006 plan to sue police


ORLANDO, Fla. (WFLA) — Wednesday marks 12 years since the disappearance of Jennifer Kesse from Orlando.

Kesse disappeared on Jan. 24, 2006 when she was just 24 years old. According to our NBC affiliate WESH, she left her apartment and was never heard from again. Investigators still don’t know what happened to her.

Kesse graduated from Gaither High School in Tampa.

On Wednesday morning, Orlando police posted a missing poster on Twitter with a photo of Kesse before she disappeared. The poster also features an age progression photo showing what Kesse could look like today.

“Today marks 12 years since the disappearance of Jennifer Kesse,” the department said. “At the Orlando Police Department, we never stop searching for missing persons.”

The department also included a picture of a person of interest in the case.

They are asking anyone with information to call (321) 235-5300.

But according to WESH, Jennifer’s parents and brother say police haven’t done enough and they want their own private investigators to take over the case.

Lawyers are getting involved now and plan to sue the police department to gain access to the files related to Jennifer’s case. An online petition has also been set up to help push for the files to be made available.
