A man videotaped parking a car belonging to missing Jennifer Kesse at an Orlando apartment complex was called a suspect by police Thursday during a press conference announcing the release of new surveillance video in the case.
The new video shows someone pulling Kesse's car into a parking spot at the Huntington On The Green apartments on Jan. 24 and then walking away.
Orlando Police Chief Michael McCoy said the video is not high quality but it can possibly lead to new clues in the case.
"It is now time that the value of that video will support and give opportunity to those with information," and we are absolutely positive that someone has the information we need to bring this young lady home," McCoy said.
It was not reported why the video was not released with earlier tape after Kesse was reported missing.
Kesse's father, Drew, and her mother attended Thursday's press conference.
"We think this is a fabulous time to do it but a little bit over," Drew Kesse said during the conference. "But that is the way things go in these types of investigations."
Kesse said Sunday, May 20, is Jennifer's birthday.
"Over the last 15-plus months, we do run into people from time to time who think that Jennifer just had a fight with her boyfriend, has a drug problem (or) is a 'runaway bride-type' who had a meltdown and she just doesn't want to be with her family anymore. Nothing can be further from the truth."
Kesse said he hopes the video wakes someone up who "has been on the edge."
Also, it was announced that a $1 million dollar reward was being offered in the case, Local 6 News reported.
Jennifer Kesse, who was 24 when she went missing, vanished from the Mosaic at Millenia condominiums near the Mall at Millenia on Jan. 24, 2006.
Her vehicle was found several days later at the nearby Huntington On The Green apartments located near Americana Boulevard and Texas Avenue.
Anyone with information may call the Orlando Police Department or Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS.
