ORIGINAL POST — MISSING PERSON, EDMONTON — Friends and family are asking for everyone’s assistance in locating missing 29 year old Jessica Thompson out of the Edmonton area.

According to one of Jessica’s close friends, a missing person’s report has been filed with the Edmonton Police Service on August 14th, however an official news release by the EPS has not been made public.

Jessica has been missing for roughly two weeks now. Nobody has heard from her since,  including her closest friends and immediate family.

Jessica Thompson is described as:

  • Female
  • 29 years old
  • Short, dark hair
  • Blue eyes
  • Lip ring x2
  • Neck tattoo

As seen on her personal Facebook page, friends have been wondering about her whereabouts for a couple weeks, and have been writing on her wall as recent as one hour ago (at the time of this release).

Sifting through prior posts on Thompson’s wall, it does look like she may have been going through troubling personal times unfortunately, however it is unclear if foul play has anything to do with her disappearance.

    Who puts the ads on these pages? I think it’s pretty disrespectful (disgusting, actually) that on a missing person’s alert, the ads on the page are from Russian prostitutes looking for men over here. There’s a couple of missing women stories on this page. Right in the middle of Jessica Thompson’s “missing” article, we’re staring into the cleavage of some Russian ho. This isn’t the place for ads like that. Show some decency.

      The ads are powered through Google Adsense, just as 90% of the world’s websites are, which means, they are chosen automatically through Google Inc.

      In fact, ads you see on our website are usually personalized for the person viewing the website in question. So what you see, is not what I see, etc.

      She was found in forestry areas with nearby tents by her amazing friends.

      This is all the information that we feel should be shared. If any more information is to be shared, it will be by her closest friends.

    Age is just a number, you can’t look an age or act an age or anything it’s just a number and age doesn’t define who you are. My daughter is younger then she is for an late teen. I hope she is found no matter what age a person is missing they need to be found. Missing is missing no matter how old a person is.

      Her friends and family went above and beyond what exactly????? Most people would move heaven and earth to find someone Missing, so I’m confused by your statement….did they hire an outside investigation service? Did they get batman in from gotham?? No!! They did what anyone missing a love one would do, only she wasn’t missing…guessing on a binge

      You should use resources like these for those actually in distress, not just avoiding contact for a few days…..there is a HUGE difference between the two
