A millionaire from Michigan who has developed a reputation on Twitter for running & # 39; Twitter philanthropy & # 39 ;, offers a $ 30,000 reward to help family and friends find a missing veteran.
Bill Pulte, the CEO of Pulte Capital, heard about the disappearance of Jesse Conger, 37, who disappeared from Scottsdale, Arizona on August 14.
Conger's family worried after he didn't hear from him after he learned that he was leaving without his wallet, cell phone, and assistance dog. It is also known that he suffers from PTSD.

Bill Pulte, the CEO of Pulte Capital, went to Twitter to announce the big reward he increased in just a few days from $ 10,000 to $ 30,000
Pulte, 31, has given away money in recent months and has gone to Twitter to initially announce a $ 10,000 reward that he has tripled since.
& # 39; $ 10K DOLLAR REWARD, & # 39; tweeted Pulte on 24 August alongside a poster with missing people. & # 39; I offer $ 10,000 REWARD to the person who finds Missing Combat Veteran Jesse near READ FERRY, AZ. Trail Heads, Vistas and viewpoints. Take our gun brothers home! & # 39;
But only three days later, Pule raised the reward money for the taking and offered to help with the search.
Conger's family said he suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and had made suicidal statements in the days before
NOW $ 30K DOLLAR REWARD My wife and I are sick of missing Combat Veteran Jesse. We now raise THE REWARD to $ 30,000 CASH to the person who finds it READ FERRY, AZ. Find our brother-in-law! & # 39; he tweeted.
So far, despite searches by plane, helicopter and a nearby lake, no evidence of the whereabouts of the veteran has been found.
Pulte, a helicopter pilot, said he would even offer to operate a search helicopter or make extra money available if a search helicopter could be used.
Conger was reported missing by his girlfriend, Natasha Harwell, the day after he disappeared.

The police were told that he had committed suicide in the days prior to his disappearance, according to Fox 10.
& # 39; I love him and I want him to come home safely. He is missed, & # 39; said Harwell of the Navy and rescue swimmer.
Conger was described as 6 feet, 3 inches long, 200 pounds, with brown hair, a full beard and blue eyes, with tattoos on his left arm and the word & # 39; rise & # 39; on his chest.
Pulte discovered about Conger & # 39; s from Gretchen Smith, the founder of Code of Vets, a non-profit organization that works on the awareness of veterans suffering from PTSD.
& # 39; We think this is a real emergency, & # 39; said Smith Fox news. & # 39; We need to take action and Pulte wants to be part of the veteran community to do what he can to reduce the number that we have every day that commits suicide. & # 39;
& # 39; I hope it is a situation that is going around. He saved people, now he must be saved. I hope someone is there to do it if I can't be – I hope there is someone, & Jesse's father, Dom Conger, told NBC12.
