SCOTTSDALE, AZ — A Michigan man has tripled the reward he is offering in an effort to find a missing Marine.

Bill Pulte, the grandson of William Pulte who was famous for his rapid home construction, says he is now offering $30,000 to help find Jesse Conger.

The 37-year-old Conger was last seen August 14. Family believe he may be heading to Lee's Ferry, near the Arizona/Utah state line, or to Mexico.

He is 6 feet 3 inches tall, 200 pounds, has several tattoos and bright blue eyes. Loved ones say he suffers from PTSD and depression.

He left without his wallet, identification, phone and service dog. He drives a silver Toyota with Nevada plate number: 696G03.

Pulte has gained notoriety online by offering up money for various causes, including veterans and others in need. In July, he pledged to give away $100,000 on Twitter, the Detroit News reported.
