21 year old Jessica Foster was last seen in Las Vegas, Nevada on March 28, 2006. She disappeared from her home in the 1000 block of Cornerstone Place and hasn’t been heard from since.
Jessica Foster was born on May 27, 1984. Originally from Canada, Foster grew up in Kamloops, British Columbia with her mother, stepfather, and three sisters. She was an honor roll student and attended Bible School in the summer.
She moved to Calgary to live with her father during her last two years of high school. After graduating Foster worked in Calgary, and had plans to eventually attend university.
Foster moved to the United States in 2005, but kept in daily contact with her family back in Canada. She had plans to attend her sister’s wedding in April 2006.
Jessica Foster’s last contact with family was by phone on March 28, 2006, while she was at her home in the 1000 block of Cornerstone Place in North Las Vegas, Nevada.
On April 3, 2006, Jessica Foster’s live in boyfriend, Peter Todd, says she left for a dentist appointment and never returned. He says all of her belongings were missing, aside from her makeup and hair dryer.
Foster’s loved ones say it would be uncharacteristic of her to leave those items behind. Jessica Foster hasn’t been seen or heard from since.
On April 9, 2006, Jessica’s mother reported her missing to the North Las Vegas Police Department.
After Foster disappeared her family hired a private investigator and learned that she had been sex trafficked from Canada to Atlantic City and Las Vegas by a man named Donald Vaz that she met in Calgary.
Foster thought of Vaz as a friend, and he invited her on a trip to Florida, New Jersey, and New York in April 2005.
From there they traveled to Nevada. It was supposed to be a short trip as she had two jobs lined up back in Canada, but she ended up moving to Las Vegas in May 2005.
Foster told her family she had met a man, Peter Todd, whom she had gotten engaged to and was moving in with. Her family did not realize she had gotten involved in prostitution.
Foster was arrested for prostitution related offenses in June and September 2005 in Nevada. Todd was her pimp, and had beaten her and broken her jaw, sending her to the hospital the same month as her first arrest.
One of the employees as the escort agency Foster worked at noticed she regularly came in with bruises and believed she was being abused.
Jessica visited her family in Canada for the holidays in 2005, but on Christmas morning right after everyone opened their presents she went to the airport and boarded a flight back to Las Vegas.
This is the last time her family saw her, but she did stay in close contact with them up until her disappearance.
Shortly before she disappeared Foster told her sister she wanted to leave Todd, telling her that she was packing and ready to leave.
There has been no activity on Jessica’s phone, credit cards, or bank account since she went missing on March 28. She also left behind $20,000 in the bank that she had planned to spend on her education.
Peter Todd told authorities that Jessica moved out of the residence, and showed police all of her clothes were missing. Police found no evidence of a crime at the home.
Todd maintains his innocence in her case.
According to authorities, Peter was cooperative with their investigation and they do not consider him a suspect in her disappearance.
Jessica was one of four sex workers who disappeared in Las Vegas between 2003 and 2006. The bodies of the other three women have been found.
Police investigated a person of interest in Foster’s disappearance and brought in a forensic team to search for evidence at his properly, but nothing indicating a crime occurred was found.
In 2015, the Calgary Sun reported that police began investigating Neal Falls in the disappearance of Foster as well as the other three women whose bodies were found. Falls was shot and killed by a prostitute on July 18, 2015, in Charleston, West Virginia.
Police found a machete, shovel, axes, knives, handcuffs, and a bottle of bleach inside Falls’ vehicle, along with a list of names of escorts. That evidence has led police to believe he may be linked to the disappearances.
Jessica’s mother, Glendene Grant, founded Mothers Against Trafficking in Humans following her daughter’s disappearance.
The location of Jessica Foster, as well as the circumstances surrounding her disappearance, remains unknown.
Foul play is suspected in Jessica’s disappearance, though no arrests have been made. Her case remains unsolved.
