On the morning of May 1, 2013 a jogger put on her exercise clothes and running shoes to prepare for her morning run.  It was already a warm morning in Roseville, CA; 87 degrees by 8 am. As the runner made her way up to the stoplight at the corner of Pleasant Grove and Woodcreek Oaks Blvd. she noticed what looked like business cards strewn on the ground next to the sidewalk.  When she got closer she saw what appeared to be a wallet next to the business cards. She reached down to pick them up to see if any of them had identifying information on them. There was an ID but no cash or credit cards. She walked into the nearby Starbucks and gave the wallet to the cashier, with the hopes that the owner of the wallet would soon be back for it.  Little did she know, six years later, the wallet would still be in an evidence box at the Roseville Police Dept. And despite months of investigation and the search efforts of hundreds of volunteers, law enforcement wouldn’t be any closer to discovering how the wallet ended up on the ground or what happened to its 59 year old shy, quiet owner. The mystery would leave family members, community members, and law enforcement all wondering the same thing:  what happened to Susan Jacobson?

There are things in this world that we cannot see.  And there are creatures on this earth that have yet to be identified.  The forest and the oceans and even many lakes are so vast and deep there’s no way we could possibly explore each and every square foot much less each square mile.  God? Angels? Demons. Ghosts? How about Bigfoot? Or aliens? And what about Tessie, otherwise known as Lake Tahoe’s very own Loch monster?
