Help find Desert Darling's Grandfather, Dan C. Jessop

The Salt Lake Tribune is reporting that Washington County Sheriff authorities are attempting to locate Dan C. Jessop, as he has been reporting missing and some family members are very concerned.

Desert Darling last posted that she heard he was in Missouri. Does anyone have any information that they could provide here, anonymously, to help authorities know where specifically to look? Please ask any friends or family members who might be willing to provide some information as well.

Here's a link to the trib article:
and a link the thread archived thread, "Grandpa, Where are you?":

Is there a photo. Perhaps someone has seen him, and doesn't realize it.

Fredonia Friend said...

Yes, but unfortunately it doesn't show at the link above. Instead, it is on the main page, here:

I don't see it there either, just the one of his daughter.

I've sent a photo of Dan Jessop to your email address. Apparently, the Tribune webmaster has switched the photos a couple of times.

I am really sorry to hear about this. I will say a prayer that your family gets your Grandfather back soon and safely. :)

Can anyone tell me where Drew Cooke and Warren Marshal Johnson are and what their FLDS status is at the moment? Email me privately if necessary.
They may possibly have information pertinent to Grandpa's location/condition.

Dan Jessop's city council position was filled today, as well as another member, William Jessop. They have been replaced by Phillip Barlow and Esdon Holm.

A previous Spectrum article stated "Hildale Mayor David Zitting said he received a written notice from Dan Jessop resigning from the council earlier this month and another from William Jessop, which was more recent."

Does anyone know for sure that Dan Jessop really tendered a written resignation?

Is William Jessop aka William Timpson (according to the article) still in town? If not, does anyone know where he is?

desert darling said...

Yes I think that Grandpa really did give a written resignation.

He has been on the City council ever since it came into existance. It started when the elders of the town would meet and he could see the vehicles all gathered from his livingroom window and go join the meeting.

In a community of habitual late arrivers, he was always on time. So much so that the city council presented him with a reward of a nice pendilum clock to hang on his wall at home. Ironically, that clock didn't keep very good time.

Willy Timpson has been out of town perpetually for about two years or more, starting from the time I had trouble with the utilities company not giving us an account and turning our water and power off. He was conveniently not to be found to sign a permission form from the 'property owner' for us to get an account.

Eugene seeing his gentile brother? or his appostate/kicked out, used to be brother-in-law? Good for him. Shows a bit of an open mind.

I heard that Dan Jessop's first wife may now be missing as well. Does anyone know where she is?

desert darling said...

She isn't the first one, just the legal one. She may still be at home, just not talking to anyone.

So!!! now he brags!!!

And the Jews said to unto Pilate, "he brags, he makes Himself a God". They said the same of His disciples who were not God, but gods, and therefore committed the ultimate crime that they will be paying for throughout eternity.

Direct quotes from the Gospels of Matthew, Mark Luke and John as written in the King James Version of the Holy Bible, without editorial comment.

Matt. 26:64 Jesus saith unto him, Thou has said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

Mark 14:62 And Jesus said I AM: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

Luke 22:

67 Art Thou the Christ? tell us. And HE said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe:

68. And if I also ask you, ye will not answer me, nor let me go.

69. Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God.

70. Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I AM.

John 18:

19. The high priest then asked Jesus of his diciples, and of his doctrine.

20. Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing.

21. Why askest thou me? Ask them which heard me, what I have said unto them: behold, they know what I said.

33. Then Pilate entered into the judgement hall again, and called Jesus and said unto him, Art thou the King of the Jews?

34. Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or did others tell it thee of me?

35. Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou done?

36. Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not far from hence.

37. Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I unto the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Everyone that is of the truth heareth my voice.

38. Pilate saith unto him, what is truth? and when he had said this he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.

John 19:

16. Then he delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus and led him away

19. And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. and the writing was, JESUS OF NAZRETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.

21. Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, write not, THE KING OF THE JEWS; but that he said I am King of the Jews.

22. Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.
