Maury’s next in search for Jessie
Kamloops This Week by Gary McKenna
Glendene Grant is going on the Maury Povich show with the hope it will raise awareness or possibly turn up some clues about her daughter’s disappearance.
Jessie Foster went missing shortly after moving to Las Vegas from Kamloops last March, and Grant hopes that by going on national television, someone may recognize her missing daughter.
“We just want to tell them as much as we can and, hopefully, someone will see her and recognize the face or the name,” said Grant.
“At least that way there will be a lot more people who see the face and know.”
Grant said she did not know the exact date when she would be on the television talk show, but said it would be in the coming months.
Since the disappearance of her daughter, Grant has been featured on Geraldo at Large, a Fox news crime show, as well as local Las Vegas news.
She said despite her television appearances, not many people in the U.S. know about the case.
Even with the length of time that has gone by since Foster stopped calling home, Grant still strongly believes her daughter is alive.
“I completely hold out hope that she is going to be found alive, and hopefully soon, because it is tearing us apart,” she said.
Grant has been on leave from work since Foster’s disappearance and is dreading her return, but said her family needs the money.
She added the only time she is able to concentrate is when she is focusing on finding her missing daughter.
“I can’t stand doing anything normal,” she said.
“Normal stuff really pisses me off. How can I do normal stuff like shopping when my daughter is being held somewhere?”
Grant and her family have put together numerous fundraising efforts to help pay for a private investigator in Las Vegas, and increase the reward money for any information about Foster’s disappearance.
They will be having their final garage sale starting today, and continuing throughout the weekend at 834 Dominion St. starting at 7 a.m.
Everything is on sale by donation ad people can also donate money to the Jessica Foster in Trust account at the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, transit number 00050 and account 28-27412.
