NV JESSIE FOSTER: Missing from Las Vegas, NV - 2006 - Age 22

    Jessie Foster was last seen in Las Vegas, Nevada. She is originally from Canada and her mom is desperately trying to find her. She may be a victim of Neal Falls, but at the time of this posting, it is very early into the investigation.

    "Jessie Foster (born May 27, 1984), full name Jessica Edith Louise Foster,is a Canadian woman who disappeared in the Las Vegas Valley in Nevada, United States, in 2006. Her parents are Glendene Grant and Dwight Foster, a couple who had a common-law marriage together but then separated. Jessie spent some time living in Calgary, Alberta. In 2005, Jessie and a friend of hers visited Florida together, and then stopped by Las Vegas on the way back. It was May when they arrived in Las Vegas, and Jessie decided to stay there. Before disappearing the following year, Jessie fell into prostitution, was arrested once for solicitation, and was the victim of battery on several occasions. Jessie is one of four women in prostitution who disappeared in Las Vegas between 2003 and 2006, and she is the only one of the four who has not been found. Benjamin Perrin of Vancouver, British Columbia, received a George Ryga Award for Social Awareness in Literature nomination for having written Invisible Chains, a book that prominently deals with human trafficking, and includes the disappearance of Jessie Foster.

    On July 26, 2015, the Calgary Sun reported police are investigating if a man killed on July 18, 2015 in Charleston, West Virginia may be responsible for the four Las Vegas killings, including Foster".

    Disappearance of Kamloops woman nears 10th anniversary

    When Jessie Foster went missing her mother Glendene Grant didn’t plan on becoming an anti-human trafficking activist. She wanted her daughter back.

    As the tenth anniversary of Foster’s disappearance approaches, Grant is still searching for her daughter, but has done much more, from helping families deal with missing daughters to speaking across the country about her daughter’s disappearance. She even spoke before the federal justice committee on Bill C36 about prostitution in Canada.

    “It hasn’t been 10 horrible years. It’s been one horrible thing that’s gone on for 10 years," Grant says.

    “I don’t remember what it’s like to not have a missing daughter,” she says “I try, but I can’t. It’s been too long.”

    While Grant wishes Foster was safe with her family, she takes pride in the work she’s done in her daughter’s name, work that wouldn’t have happened if Foster hadn’t disappeared. Her husband and three other daughters are proud of her as well and she looks forward to sharing that work with her missing daughter.

    “She’ll see how much is being done when she comes back and know how many lives have been saved because of her,” Grant says. “Jessie’s story has been heard and valued by so many people.”

    Jessie Foster disappearance reaches 10-year anniversary

    Glendene Grant says it doesn't feel like her daughter has been missing for 10 years.

    She believes her daughter, Jessie Foster, became a victim of human smuggling — one of the over two million victims worldwide each year.

    "The first year, I couldn't believe it had been a year," she told The Early Edition host Rick Cluff. "But 10 years is a long time, and it's hard to wrap your brain around having a daughter missing for that long."

    I bet that Peter Todd knows where she is. I just get that feeling even though he had an "alibi". Something happened. If not him, IMOO then she was abducted by someone/people posing as johns who forced her into human trafficking/sex trafficking

    North Las Vegas Police ignore pain of human trafficking victim’s mother

    Eleven years ago young Jessie Foster spoke over the telephone with her parents in Canada and she sounded normal, upbeat and full of hope and dreams like any other young lady coming to Las Vegas might feel. On March 24, 2006 Foster spoke with her family in Canada for what was to be the last time she would speak with them; ten days later when she was with her boyfriend — known to Clark County law enforcement as a violent pimp named Peter Todd — she disappeared. It seems that as soon as police in Las Vegas and North Las Vegas learned the name of Jessie Foster’s alleged boyfriend, they dropped the case like a hot potato and seemed to be afraid of that Peter Todd person. Peter Todd, who is also known as Peter Bertrand Todd, apparently scares the Nevada authorities, who say they want nothing to do with him; and according to one police source, they are “afraid of Peter” and will never touch him. Recently, Jessie Foster’s mother called the North Las Vegas Police to check on the supposed ongoing investigation of her missing daughter and was shocked when the new investigator in Jessie’s case told her that her daughter’s missing case means nothing to her, and she should get over it; she then unsuccessfully tried to contact the Chief of the North Las Vegas Police. The story of Jessie Foster is very similar to many others. A man by the name of Donald Vaz from Calgary, AB, Canada met Jessie Foster, a straight A student, while she was still in high school. In the spring of 2005, he invited Jessie to go on a trip to Florida. Jessie’s mother, Glendene Grant, was not happy about the trip, since it meant Jessie would be going to another country, but Jessie went anyway. Jessie ended up in Las Vegas and living with Peter Bertrand Todd at 1009 Cornerstone Place in North Las Vegas, where she disappeared on March 29, 2006, without a trace. Jessie was hospitalized with a broken jaw because of a brutal beating she received from Peter Todd, and then all of a sudden, she disappeared. Las Vegas Tribune has learned that Peter Bernard Todd is involved in human trafficking — which is a polite way to describe what pimps do — something that police so often brag about working to stop with their sting operations, but which produce few arrests and even fewer convictions. There was no investigation, no search of the home where she was living — as if she was nobody; she was insignificant to every member of the North Las Vegas Police Department and the Las Vegas Metro Police.

    Perly Viasmensky, Las Vegas Tribune’s General Manager, who has maintained contact with Foster’s family in Canada, wrote a year ago, March 28, 2016 “How can you tell a mother to forget about the disappearance of her daughter, whether she’s been gone for ten years or only a day? A mother can never forget and neither can any of us, who have been following Jessica Foster’s case for ten long years. “I wrote about her case many times before and I am still puzzled that the authorities of North Las Vegas, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police and even the Attorney General’s office never launched an investigation into her disappearance when they have so many people to investigate. They even allowed the persons involved to walk away without even an interview,” said Viasmensky. Recently Jessie’s mother tried to call the North Las Vegas Police Department to ask if there was any progress in the supposed ongoing investigation of her missing daughter; they hung up on her twice; in an email to the Las Vegas Tribune, Ms. Grant wrote the following: “The last time I contacted the NLV PD, they hung up on me and when I called back, I was basically laughed at, and hung up on again. I am still dumbfounded that it happened, as it showed nothing but utter disrespect from the police. And that is not the way to handle anyone, let alone the mother of a woman missing for years.”

    Lack of compassion seems to be the trademark of Clark County (North Las Vegas is in Clark County) when they cannot do their job. We asked where Attorney General Catherine Cortes Masto was when one needed her after she won the election for US Senator, bragging about her dedicated involvement in stopping human trafficking.

    Jessie's mother needs to report her experience with the Las Vegas Police Dept. to a higher authority.

    I agree, the FBI took a look at Jessie's case once, but handed it back over and told Glendene it wasn't something they would investigate. I think it was because Jessie wasn't a U.S citizen.

    Jessie's mother went to Las Vegas a couple times to meet with the media and the detectives. In 2007, Glendene was denied entry to the United States due to a lousy 1986 conviction for marijuana and cocaine possession.

    Canadian Mom Searching for Missing Daughter Denied Entry to US Over 21-Year-Old Drug Conviction

    Glendene Grant, a 49-year-old resident of Kamloops, British Columbia, never had any interest in visiting the United States. That changed a little more than a year ago, when her daughter, then 21-year-old Jessie Foster went missing in Las Vegas in March 2006. Since then, she has made three trips to the US to talk with investigators and publicize her daughter's case on TV talk shows.

    Jessie Foster traveled to Las Vegas in 2005, and became a prostitute working for an escort service -- a fact her mother did not know until she began investigating her disappearance. For more than a year, there has been no sign of her. Her case had been declared "cold" by the North Las Vegas Police Department, but on the suggestion of a US journalist, Grant contacted a new unit in the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department dedicated to human trafficking cases, the ATLAS (Anti-Trafficking League Against Slavery). ATLAS agreed to take on the Foster case, saying it had the earmarks of a sex slavery case. Grant was set to travel to Las Vegas again last week to meet with investigators and local media about the case, but this time she was turned back by US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at the Vancouver airport. The reason? She had a 1986 conviction for marijuana and cocaine possession. As Drug War Chronicle reported just two weeks ago, both the US and Canada bar people who admit past drug use or have drug convictions from entering the country. Glendene Grant found that out the hard way, and she can't believe her ancient conviction even matters.

    "I was supposed to fly last Monday night, but when I got to the airport, they told me to come back the next day," Grant told Drug War Chronicle. "I went early and spent three hours talking to one of the agents, and he finally said I would be denied and that I would have to get a waiver -- the same form they had given me the night before. I asked to speak to CBP supervisor Patricia Lundy, but I could tell she was not going to listen to anything I had to say. She asked if my daughter had chosen to go to Las Vegas, and when I said yes, she said 'Then I guess she made her own choices, didn't she?' When I asked 'Are you telling me my daughter chose to be kidnapped?' she threw me out of the office and called the RCMP to escort me away. It was the most unprofessional behavior I've seen in my life."

    "They tried to say I couldn't cross because of that old drug conviction," Grant said. "I have never hid it, I had a valid passport, then, for some reason, it became an issue."

    The citizenship status could be a real problem for her. Las Vegas knows it will be difficult for her to hold them responsible for their actions, or lack of actions. She will have problems getting the FBI involved because there isn't more than one state involved and there isn't a child. She might try going to her own Canadian government and see if they can intervene or bring about some kind of activity on the case.

    Good idea, Kimster, but I think she will need to go even higher. I think she should start knocking on doors at the Office of the State Attorney General or the Governor of Nevada. She needs to make lots of noise and maybe get some help from the media.
