Episode 66 Jesse Farber

29 year old Jesse Lee Farber vanished from Tamaqua, PA on Aug. 11, 2015 and hasn't been seen since. The mystery of what happened to Jesse started with a strange phone call to his girlfriend in which Jesse claimed he was being chased by coyotes in the Sharp Mountain area. Jesse told his girlfriend that he had gone up a tree and needed help, and asked her to bring a gun. When help showed up in the area where Jesse was supposed to be, he was no where to be found. Extensive searches of the rugged area where Jesse vanished from came up empty. Then, in December, 2016, more than a year after Jesse vanished, a hunter found his sweatpants in a tree on a remote, steep mountainside near the top of Sharp Mountain. Jesse's backpack was higher up in the same tree. However, there was no sign of Jesse, and he has never been found.

Jesse Farber is described as a White male, 5'5 - 5'7, 130 pounds Brown hair, brown eyes. He has a chipped front tooth and may use the name Jesse Rex. Jesse has a dog bite scar on each cheek and a small scar on his forehead. He has numerous tattoos, including a fox on his left upper arm at the shoulder, a black star wreath above the Roman numerals II, III and IV on the inside of his left forearm, a small ankh symbol on his left forearm, a skull with a snake coming out of it on his right upper arm at the shoulder, a colorful dragon's skull and words in black Gothic script on his upper back, a bear claw print on the right side of his chest, and a stick figure drawing in a keyhole shape on the left side of his ribcage showing a scene of a man hanging from a tree.
