    San Diego police are asking for the public’s help to find a San Diego woman who left her home on Saturday and has not been seen since.

    Julia Jacobson, 37, was last seen at a 7-Eleven on Aero Drive Saturday morning about 6:30 a.m. and she was last heard from later the same day about 9:30 p.m. when she texted a friend and said she was in the Palm Springs area, according to friends and San Diego police.

    Jacobson’s car, a white Chevy Equinox, was discovered abandoned on Thursday morning on Monroe Ave in North Park not far from her Normal Heights home.

    According to a post on the “Help find Julia Jacobson” Facebook page, the vehicle was found with all of its windows rolled down at different levels.

    The page says that Jacobson’s dog, a Wheaten terrier named Boogie, is also missing.

    San Diego police are asking for the public's help in finding a missing 37-year-old retired Army captain who served two tours in Iraq.

    Julia Jacobson, 37, was last heard from on Sept. 2 at about 9:30 p.m. when she texted a friend saying she was in Palm Springs, SDPD officers said. Her actual location was unknown.

    On Thursday, authorities found her company car abandoned in the 2600 block of Monroe Avenue in University Heights, east of Texas Street and near Interstate 8 and 805. The location is about half a mile away from her home.

    Missing Army vet spotted on Serra Mesa surveillance footage

    The family of a retired army captain missing for nearly a week will launch a community wide search Saturday morning.

    Julia Jacobson's brother, Jon Jacobson, is in San Diego from North Dakota. He spent Friday searching businesses in the University Heights area where his sister lived to see if they have surveillance footage.

    They're organizing a community wide search Saturday morning. They plan to meet at Garfield Elementary School on Oregon at 9 am.

    Friday afternoon, San Diego Police confirmed that Jacobson, and her Wheaten Terrier Mix "Boogie," were seen on surveillance in Ontario around 8 p.m. Saturday.

    Prior to that, she was seen on a 7/11 surveillance camera off I-15 and Aero Drive. That was at 6:30 that morning. Saturday night around 9:30, she sent a text message to a friend saying she was in Palm Springs, but her brother said the way the texts were written makes him suspicious.

    He said his sister is normally long winded, but the text simply said "Palm Springs today. Big Bear tomorrow." The text also said she was with a friend, but it's unclear who.

    Brother Sees 'Red Flags' in Disappearance of Sister, Missing Since Last Weekend

    The brother of a retired United States Army captain who vanished last weekend in San Diego said he sees the “red flags” in his sister’s case, and fears a grim outcome.

    One week later, Julia remains missing as her family, including Jon, grow more concerned by the second. She was with her dog, a wheaten terrier named Boogie, when she vanished.

    Jon, who has worked as a private investigator in criminal cases for the past 20 years, said he can’t help but fear the worst in his sister’s case. Over the decades, he has worked on nearly 60 homicide cases.

    “As an investigator, I know the statistics – I know the game,” Jon told NBC 7. “I know how, most of the time, this story ends. I can see all the red flags.”

    Jon said it is extremely out of character for Julia to abruptly lose contact with her family – especially their nearly 80-year-old father, whom she calls every single day.

    Those daily calls to her dad stopped the day before she vanished.

    “I know how Julia’s personality is; she’s very much a military officer. She’s very regimented, very detailed. She follows the same schedule every day,” Jon explained.

    “Julie’s definitely not a free spirit, so to speak. She’s very much a military officer. She doesn’t wear the uniform anymore, but she still has the personality [of a military officer],” he added.
    Jon said he last spoke with Julia about two weeks ago, when she called to get his advice on a new job she had been offered in San Antonio, Texas. Julia had decided to accept the position and was thrilled to be moving there, where her best friend from childhood lives.

    Jon said his sister was preparing for her big move and excited for a fresh start. He said she had recently been through a bitter divorce.

    At this point, Jon has been told by police that Julia’s ex-husband met up with her on the morning of Sept. 2. By 8 p.m. that day, she was in Ontario, California, about 120 miles north of San Diego County.

    “And we don’t know what else has happened,” he said.

    Holden said detectives have spoken with Julia's ex-husband; he has been cooperative. At this point, he is not suspected by SDPD in her disappearance.

    Officials confirmed they have spoken with Julia’s ex-husband. The two had a tumultuous relationship buthad divorced more than a year ago, according to family members.

    “He is not a person of interest to us at this time,” Lt. Holden told Dateline. “He’s being cooperative with the investigation.”

    Whatever may be going on, one thing is certain to Julia’s family. Something is very wrong.

    They describe her as someone who sticks to her routines. She’s been the rock of the family since their mother passed in February. She has never been the type of person to go away without notice.

    “She came home safe after serving her country, and then now she disappears,” Casey told Dateline. “We were reeling from the loss of our mother and now, Julia is gone.”

    ND native has been missing for 10 days in San Diego

    Vigil set Sunday for missing San Diego woman last seen in Ontario

    The sighting of a missing San Diego woman in the Inland region has prompted authorities to consider all information on her whereabouts in “the area between Ontario and her home,” San Diego police said.

    Family and friends plan a candlelight vigil for Jacobson at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 17, at Ventura Cove Park, 3209 Gleason Road.

    San Diego police consider the case an active investigation, said San Diego police Lt. Todd Griffin via email.

    “We are casting a wide net in our efforts to account for her,” Griffin said.

    "I mean we have to do everything we can to find her" said Julias Father, Lowell Jacobson.

    "We have to trust in God, and he can give them some comfort and hope, that would be my message, that they have some hope" said Deacon Randy Frohlick, who presided over the vigil.

    Some who have never met Julia felt compelled to come and pray for her safe return.

    Billboard Put Up For Missing Ret. Army Captain

    For the next month, drivers and pedestrians will see a billboard on the corner of Mercury Street and Clairemont Mesa Boulevard in Kearny Mesa with a simple message: If you've seen Julia Jacobson, call the San Diego Police.

    Julia's friends said Friday the billboard with her picture will be up for a month. It will change locations after a week for more visability.

    They added digital billboards with a similar ad are going up in Riverside County.

    "The best thing community members can do right now is download the flyer from the website and make 10 copies, it won’t cost much and as they go about their daily lives post flyers at various businesses," said a friend of the family and admin of Julia's support Facebook Page. "Somebody saw something and we just need to find that person."

    Jon said he’s hopeful that, soon, his family will have answers. For now, he knows one thing: his sister is a fighter.

    “I know she’s incredibly strong. She’s a Bosnian War veteran, she’s an Iraqi War veteran. She’s the classic strong, independent woman,” he said. “She’s a very powerful woman, and I know she wouldn’t go down without a fight, so to speak.”

    Man accused of murdering Army veteran wife had alleged history of abuse

    The Arizona man accused of killing his wife — an Army veteran who lived in San Diego — allegedly abused a woman from a previous marriage, according to court documents.

    Dalen Larry Payne Ware has been charged with murdering Julia Jacobson, 37, who was last seen Sept. 2 in Ontario, Calif.

    Detectives haven’t found her remains, but believe she was killed in San Bernardino County on Sept. 3. They were ultimately led to Ware, her ex-husband, and he was arrested at his Arizona home on Oct. 12.

    Jacobson had filed for divorce last year. And while she cited “irreconcilable differences,” the documents revealed little about the couple’s relationship.

    Court filings from a previous marriage were more detailed.

    After divorcing in March 2013, Ware’s previous wife filed for a restraining order, writing in detail of the abuse she had allegedly suffered at the hands of her ex-husband.

    She wrote that throughout their marriage, Ware had abused her mentally and physically — at times calling her names, choking her, spitting in her face, twisting her arm and pushing her head into the ground.
