Car of missing Marine in Arizona found more than five months after he was last seen, police say

Authorities in Arizona have found a car belonging to a U.S. combat veteran who has been missing for more than five months.

Jesse Conger, 37, was last seen with his girlfriend, Natasha Harwell, the morning of August 14 at his apartment in Scottsdale. Harwell reported him missing the next day, and his family said he'd been suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and depression.

The Scottsdale Police Department told FOX10 on Saturday that Conger's car was discovered in San Carlos on Thursday, about 100 miles east of Phoenix.

Patricia Conger, his sister, shared on Facebook that his Toyota Camry was found with the keys in the ignition, with hunting and fishing gear inside.

"Jesse’s pistol is not there," she wrote.

In the days prior to his disappearance, Conger had made suicidal statements, FOX10 reported at the time.
