We reserve the right to keep this site up pretty much as is as a testament to this family's search conducted out of love and extreme concern to find Jon, who ended up to be maliciously missing (barring medical/mental evaluations that legally we can't get.)

Message from Jon's wife (May 19, 2007):

It has been 2 years today since I hugged and kissed Jon goodbye at our front door and then never saw or talked to him again.  2 years, it's unimanginable.  Please if you know anything, if you remember anything about that day that Jon disappeared, please email me.  If you saw or talked with Jon when he left Citigroup that day, or if you saw Jon at Smith's Grocery Store in front of the Budget Rental counter (or if you saw him in the Smith's parking lot) where he was running his errand to on his lunch break, please let me know what you saw or heard!!!!!

Thank you,

Jon's Wife

Thank you ! ! !

Article in Newspaper:  May 30, 2007 http://www.mesquitelocal.com/pages/veteranpage

I recently attended a Vietnam Era Marine Corps Unit re-union. They met at the home of Bill and Maureen Brunton, Mesquite , NV

These guys had lots of stories to talk about, but they also have a mission yet today. They have a member of the group who went missing a couple years ago in the Las Vegas area. If you would like to help, go to www.reintjes.us/missing_jon.htm for more info. All the members were assigned to the 1st or 3rd Marine Division in the DPP8/DPP16 in the Da Nang area in the mid 60’s. As I spoke with them I became aware of how little knowledge we Vietnam Vets still have about the Deadly Agent Orange defoliant that was used all over Vietnam. The Bottom line is if you were any place in country please contact the Veterans Administration, and get a physical. The fact is you may be dying from that exposure.
