Reward To Find Jesse Leopold

Jesse Leopold has been missing for 61 days as of December 13, 2016. Jesse was last seen at his place of employment W&G Marketing in Jewell on Thursday, October 13th leaving work mid-shift. Jesse left behind his sunglasses, cigarettes and personal shoes. Jesse's roommate called his father on Friday, October 14th stating that Jesse hadn't returned home. Jesse's father, Jerry Leopold, then called local authorities and hospitals in Boone, Story and Hamilton counties with no luck finding Jesse.Saturday, October 15th, Jerry posted fliers at local businesses asking for help to locate his missing son. Sunday, October 16th, Jerry received a call that Jesse's truck was parked at the lower Ledges State Park. The truck was unlocked with the keys in the ignition and in the back of the truck were Jesse's rubber work boots and his socks.Local authorities brought out search and rescue dogs and there was absolutely no scent outside of the truck. They did not confiscate the truck... leaving Jerry to take the truck home as it couldn't be left in a state park. Friends and family have been left to search for Jesse themselves. The Ledges State Park has been searched extensively. The river from the Ledges all the way up and past the Luther Bridge has been searched briefly before the weather turned along with the log jams.The jurisdiction seems to be one that no one wants to step up and take control of with three counties and now a state park being involved.Jesse's truck is not being fingerprinted as they now are calling it contaminated due to the father moving it. Regardless, of the fact that they could have done this immediately had they confiscated it and could exclude the father's prints. Jesse's cell phone has yet to be utilized to finding more clues as to where or what may have happened. There has been rumors that Jesse is no longer with us and that he could be anywhere from Jewell, Frazier, Stanhope, Ridgeport, random out buildings, ditches and spanning to the Ledges State Park. We need help bringing Jesse home either by assistance with searching fields, ditches and outbuildings by farmers, hunters, snowmobilers or fishermen.Or you can help with a donation towards a reward in bringing Jesse Leopold home and bring peace to a father and sister! Any donation given will be used as a monetary reward to the person that can find Jesse Leopold. If by chance the reward is not used or needed, the money will be given to a foundation of the father and sister's choice!
