[UPDATE: Located] Missing Woman Said She Was Going to a Humboldt Marijuana Farm to Work
Jessalyn Dean was last seen by her roommate at the end of September. According to her mother, Toni Dean, the missing 27-year-old told the roommate that she was going to work on a marijuana farm in Humboldt County.
On October 5, Toni Dean says a message purporting to be from her daughter came from her Facebook account. “It did not sound like her,” said the worried mother. It said that she just wanted to be left alone. “When she left here in Portland, she was extremely depressed,” Toni Dean said.
After repeated attempts to contact Jessalyn, Toni filed a missing person report with the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office. “I’ve left message after messages on Facebook. Her voicemail is full….Her ex-boyfriend is still paying for her phone. We are hoping to get it pinged.”
When last seen Jessalyn Dean had dread extensions. She is approximately 5’4″ and weighs about 105 pounds. She has blue eyes and light brown or blonde hair.
She has a tattoo on the inside of one wrist (a circle with a line through it) and a tree tattooed up her right thigh and onto her torso. Her septum and lip are pierced. Though she was not wearing nose and lip jewelry in her last photos below.
Jessalyn had a Canon Rebel and was into photography. She also did fire dancing and loved festivals, according to her mother.
