The family of a former Post Falls man who was last seen on June 2, 2018, is seeking information on his whereabouts.

Jonathan "Jon" Paul Estes, 35, was last seen in Bogue Chitto, Miss., said Carl Estes, Jon's father.

Prior to going missing, Jon was in frequent communication with people in North Idaho, his father said.

There is a $25,000 reward for information leading to finding Jon.

Jon is an industrial construction worker with an estranged wife, a 14-year-old daughter and an 11-year-old son.

"We want people to know he's missing and to please help us find him," Carl said.

Jon's Dodge Ram was found in a wooded area near Bogue Chitto about a month after he went missing, Carl said. There were no signs of foul play.

Carl said the last time he spoke with his son — on June 1 — Jon sounded "broken."

Jon was born in Kellogg and lived in Post Falls from 1993 to 2003. He attended Post Falls High.

Carl was a pastor at multiple churches in the Inland Northwest, while Beverly Estes, Jon's mother, was a nurse at hospitals in Kellogg and Spokane.

Carl described his son as outgoing and likable.

"He's never met a stranger," Carl said.

The family visited North Idaho for elk hunting and summer vacations after they moved.

Those with information are encouraged to call Terry James of Gulf Coast Investigations at 813-993-2242, Carl at 601-551-9116 or Melissa Estes, Jon's sister, at 662-321-0308.

"As a family, we have been frantically searching for him along with friends, but feel we are at a dead end and need more assistance than we alone can provide," Melissa said in a Facebook message. "Our hope is to reunite him with his family or at least to ensure he is OK."
