ORLANDO, Fla. -- Wednesday January 24, 2018 marks 12 years since the disappearance of Tampa native Jennifer Keese in Orlando. 

Orlando Police have been searching for the then 24-year-old since she disappeared sometime between 10 p.m. on January 23, 2006 and 8 a.m. on January 24, 2006. 

Investigators with the case say her car was found at the Huntington on the Green Condos. The condos are located about one mile from her home. 

Orlando police held a news conference at 10 a.m. on Wednesday to bring awareness to the case and ask for tips. Relatives of Kesse and detectives who have been investigating her case attended the news conference. 

Logan Kesse, Jennifer Kesse's brother, told WFTV in Orlando that Wednesday's news conference was a "dog and pony show and an insult to his family." Kesse's family wants the Orlando Police Department to give them access to tips that were submitted in the weeks after Jennifer disappeared. The family says they plan to sue the agency because they believe there were mistakes made in the investigation of the case, according to WFTV.
