Help find Jesse Larson

Thursday, November 7, 2013

Dear Friends,

I received a message earlier this week from the family of Jesse Larson, a Crosby resident who went missing June 20th, 2013. Please take a moment to review the message, and view the attached flier from Jesse's family before this weekend's deer hunting opener, particularly if you or your friends or family plan to hunt in the Crosby/Perry Lake township area this weekend or in the coming weeks and months.

Please contact the Crow Wing County Sheriff's Department at 218-829-4749 if you have any tips or information that may assist in finding Jesse, and please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.



Message from Jesse Larson's family:

November 9th's deer hunting opener will mark 142 days since avid outdoorsman, Jesse Larson, was last seen or heard from. 27 year old Larson was last seen on his family’s ranch, 12 miles north of Crosby in Perry Lake Township, heading out back on the family property to swim he and his father's black Labrador retrievers. Jesse's truck was found stuck in the mud, in a four wheeler search of the family's property the following day, near a water hole, when Larson failed to return home.
The dogs returned home on days two and eight of Larson's disappearance. Many searches by air, foot, four wheelers, horses, dogs and volunteer firefighters have left family and authorities with no clues. Our family remains hopeful that tips will be provided to the Crow Wing County Sheriff's Department this deer season, as area woodlands soon will be filled with hunters walking, listening and watching.
Banners are strategically placed in outlying communities, billboards are hung to alert travelers and a Facebook page ( is continuously updated with ideas for those interested in supporting our search to bring Jesse home. We remind people of the need to report tips as soon as possible in order for facts to remain clear and details to be more easily recalled.
