WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- As police continue the search for the 83-year-old former D.C. jail warden, who was last seen on 5th Street, N.W. on March 11, a statement from Jesse Jone's family was released Sunday.

Statement from Mr. Brian Jones on behalf of the Jones family:

March 16, 2014

My name is Brian Jones and I am the oldest son of Jess Jones. I am representing our family today along with youngest sister Alyse and her husband Walter Metallo. Our middle brother, Jonathan Jones, who was also active in the search for our Dad, has traveled back home and is not here with us today, but he, myself, my mother, sister and brother-in-law and a host of loving Aunts, Uncles and Cousins all stand united as we make that statement to you today.

The Jones Family wishes to thank the DC Police Department and the many volunteers for their tireless efforts to find our Dad. The attitude and energy they have displayed in this search has been incredible and for that we are grateful.

With the impending snowstorm tonight, we are once again calling for the public's assistance in helping find our father as we are very worried about his well-being.

The police have expanded the search for our Dad to include parts of Maryland and there is now a reward of $5,000 for information that leads to finding him.

Many supporters of the search are wearing purple and yellow ribbons – purple for memory loss and yellow for missing persons.

If you have seen our Dad, Jesse Jones, or have any information about him, please call the District of Columbia police at 202-727-9099, 202-576-7597 or simply dial 911.

Thank you.
