    Details of Disappearance

    Jason was last seen in St. George, Utah during the morning hours of March 18, 2002. He has never been heard from again. Investigators believe he left of his own accord. Jason may be in Salt Lake City, Utah or in Nevada or southern California. He took a green Huffy bicycle, a backpack and .22 caliber pistol with him; the gun's serial number is 361538SEE.

    Ten days after Jason's disappearance, his father, Timothy Wayne Dennis, was charged with fifteen felony counts of child sex abuse; his victim was a young girl. Investigators stated the charges had nothing to do with Jason or his disappearance. He gave some friends a runaway note stating he was leaving of his own decision; the note did not mention any difficulties with his father. Timothy was convicted of one count of forcible sexual abuse and one count of sexual abuse on a child. He has since been released from prison and now lives in Draper, Utah.

    Jason's case remains unsolved.
