ST. GEORGE — Multiple law enforcement agencies in two states are teaming up to locate a veteran who went missing two weeks ago.
Jesse Conger, 37, was last seen Aug. 14 leaving his apartment in Scottsdale, Arizona, leaving behind his phone, wallet, I.D. and service dog.

Conger served as a U.S. Marine in Afghanistan and Iraq, and he has helped Arizona search and rescue teams as a diver. He has been diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder, which his twin sister Patricia Conger believes is related to this incident. She said her brother “was not in his right state of mind in the days leading up to his disappearance.”
“Jesse rescued people; now he needs to be rescued,” she said.
Volunteers initially focused their search on the Utah-Arizona border, believing Jesse Conger might have driven back roads to Lee’s Ferry in connection with a trip he had been planning. Now, Patricia Conger believes he might be heading to Ogden, where he was raised, or Orem, where he lived until weeks before his disappearance.
