FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - UPDATE 5/4/21 7:18 P.M.: Fargo Police say Jessica Houser has been located and is safe

ORIGINAL STORY: The family of a missing Fargo woman is begging for help tonight as they fear she’s in danger.

The Fargo Police Department says 30-year-old Jessica Houser was last seen near downtown Fargo on April 29. Another person reported speaking with Houser on April 30.

“It’s been crazy. We just want answers. We just want to know that she’s ok,” Hope Seelye, Jessica’s sister said.

Seelye says she and her family have been doing their own investigation and have learned Jessica may be with a man who Seelye says is dangerous and possibly violent.

“That’s one thing to the puzzle that we have not concluded on why she was with him,” Seelye said.

Seelye says she’s been in contact with the man. We are not naming him as Fargo Police have yet to identify him publicly.

However, Seelye states the man has told her that he knows where Jessica is, but won’t disclose any other information.

“He says that she’s safe and that he’ll have her reach out and call home, but she has not reached out to us. And that’s not like her,” she said.

Seelye also says her sister has been dealing with addiction recently, which makes her and her family feel like the community takes her disappearance not as seriously.

“I fear for her life and everybody around me does too. We just need to find her and we need answers. How do we know it’s not going to be too late? How do we know she’s not dead already?” Seelye said.

Little information was provided at that news conference, saying it’s an active investigation and they can’t discuss specific details of the case. Helmick says their main focus is determining if Houser is okay.

Houser is described as a white female who is 4′11″ with a thin build, brown eyes and brown hair.

If you have any information regarding her whereabouts, please call 701-451-7660 or text FARGOPD to 847411.
