Parents of Jennifer Kesse speak on 10th anniversary of daughter's disappearance

- On the 10th anniversary of her disappearance, Jennifer Kesse's parents spoke out Friday, hoping for any leads about what happened to their daughter.

Kesse went missing on January 24, 2006. 

Police believe she was kidnapped. Investigators found her car near her home, but there was no sign of her.

Since then, police say more than 1,000 tips have come in, but no strong leads.

Kesse's parents said they are still holding out hope they'll find their daughter and ask the public for their continued support. "We're a strong family. Obviously when something this tragic and heinous happens to someone within the family and it goes on for the period of 10 years, it's going to have its toll on us. But we will not break. Jennifer needs us and we're going to do whatever's needed and stay strong," said Drew Kesse, Jennifer's father.

They also said new billboards will be going up in the Orlando area about their daughter's disappearance.

Kesse lived in Orlando at the time of her disappearance, but she grew up in Tampa.

Anyone with information about Kesse's disappearance is urged to call the Orlando Police Department. Crime Stoppers is also offering a reward for any information.
