*UPDATE 11/24/13:

From the family: 

 Jesse James Larson was found today, Saturday November 23, 2013 – on our family ranch. It is with heavy hearts that we inform you that Jesse has gone to be with God. Gone, but never forgotten.

Here is the Facebook page that this came from.


This from the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association:


The family of Jesse James Larson, 27 year old male from rural Crosby, would like to remind people that Jesse is still missing and asks for your help in finding clues to his disappearance as you are out in the woods this hunting season. Searches by four wheeler, helicopter, mounted patrol, rescue dogs, fire department personnel, Crow Wing County Sheriff’s Department, family and friends have not provided any leads up to this point.  Jesse is 5’9″ tall, weighing 175 pounds with brown hair.  He has a Ducks Unlimited duck head tattoo on the underside of his right forearm and a shotgun shell tattoo on the underside of his left forearm.

Jesse was last seen on June 20th as he left in his truck, presumably to take he and his dad’s black labs out back for a swim on the family farm.  Upon hearing and seeing nothing from Jesse by the next day, family began contacting Larson’s friends with no success.  Family then filed a missing person’s report and began meeting with investigators.  Jesse did not have a cell phone with him and did not use a computer.  Jesse’s truck was found a couple of miles out behind the family home, stuck in the mud, with his belongings left inside.  One of the black labs was located in a field on the family property on day two of a four wheeler search, the other came running up the driveway on day eight of Jesse’s disappearance.  After conducting numerous searches in water and on land, the family and investigators are left with no clues.

The family is hoping with the distribution of thousands of flyers, rotation of eight banners from town to town, billboards up in Grand Rapids and Walker and the 7000 viewers of Jesse’s Facebook page (, awareness of his disappearance will be raised.  Investigators need tips to act – the family needs your help in gathering these tips.  Larson’s family is asking you to check your cabins, duck blinds, deer stands and hunting grounds for any sign of Jesse or any unusual disturbance to property, as he has always been an avid outdoorsman. They are asking that anyone with information, however small they deem it, call the Crow Wing County Sheriff’s Department at 218-829-4749, or get in contact with a family member.  Jesse is expecting his first child at the end of January.  He is deeply loved and profoundly missed by many.
