SPECIAL GUEST: MATTHEW O'BRIEN is an author and journalist who's lived in Las Vegas since 1997. His first book, Beneath the Neon: Life and Death in the Tunnels of Las Vegas, chronicles his adventures in the city's underground flood channels. His second book, My Week at the Blue Angel: And Other Stories from the Storm Drains, Strip Clubs, and Trailer Parks of Las Vegas, (WHICH INCLUDES JESSIE'S CASE), is a creative-nonfiction collection set in off-the-beaten-path Vegas. He's the founder of Shine a Light, a community project that provides housing, drug counceling, and other services to the people living in the drains. 

Matt was a reporter for the Las Vegas CityLife when I met him in Las Vegas, my 2nd time there. He was writing a story, WHERE'S JESSIE? so he came with us around the city to appointments with the police, handing out posters, going to the house Jessie had been living in (kept at) in North Las Vegas. There was myself (Jessie's mom Glendene), Jessie's dad, Dwight, Matt, and the Global TV crew from Calgary - reporter & cameraman - who also met with us in Vegas to do a big story about Jessie, going around the city with the camera on. What an experience - and what a lot of exposure for Jessie. 

Glendene is looking for her missing daughter JESSIE FOSTER who has been a missing person since March 29, 2006 when she went missing under very mysterious circumstances from her HOME in North Las Vegas. 

Jessie is most likely a victim of human trafficking.
