Feb. 8, 2006 — -- Relatives of a missing Orlando, Fla., woman want her to know they are doing everything they can to find her.

"Jennifer, you know and you feel that. We are coming for you," her father, Drew Kesse, said on "Good Morning America." "We are doing everything possible, and you just hang in there."

Jennifer Kesse, 24, was last seen on Jan. 24 near her Orlando home. Her parents, Drew and Joyce, are convinced their daughter is alive and being held against her will.

Police have released grainy surveillance footage taken close to where Jennifer's car was abandoned, about one mile from her condo. The footage shows a man, partially obscured by a post, who is dressed in a white shirt and black shoes.

"We just want to know some information -- where he came from, where he was going to," Orlando police Sgt. Barbara Jones told the Orlando Sentinel. "We just want to talk to him."

Hundreds of volunteers have been fanning out in a five-mile radius in the area around Jennifer's condo, but so far haven't turned up any clues.

Jennifer works as a manager at a large financial company that maintains condominiums.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Orlando police at 407-246-3947 or Crimeline at 1-800-423-8477. There is a $115,000 reward.
