Update from Harter Investigations, LLC.

Jarrett Brooks Missing Juvenile NCSO case # 2307 -0135.

We have been running leads, following up on those leads, and diligently working on the case since we contracted with a relative of Jarrett's on July 18th.

As much as we appreciate everyone asking questions, please do not get alarmed or put off if we do not answer questions regarding the investigation.

We will NOT share details with the general public that could jeopardize the investigation. We do, however, share details of this investigation with the Navajo County Sheriff's Department Detectives (NCSO). My team would like to thank NCSO for their support and steadfast communication during this investigation.

We have had leads from all over the southwest, and our most significant problem with the tips is always the same: There is NO proof, such as pictures or video; sometimes, the lead/tip is days or weeks old. We still want the information, but please take pictures, get a video, get clothing descriptions (start at the head and work to the feet), license plates, illustrations of vehicles, etc. All details matter.

My team and I have spent many days and nights trying to find Jarrett. My investigators are skilled, licensed investigators who have devoted their time and talent to this case. We are committed to finding him for his well-being and his family's.

By The Numbers, according to

77% of Endangered Runaways reported to NCMEC were between 15 and 17 years old.

87% of these missing children had at least one reported risk factor, and 62% had two or more risk factors.

We know someone knows something. You can remain anonymous. If you know something, call or text us, or reach out on Facebook. We guarantee you can remain anonymous if you desire.

The following is also from and defines why we changed his flyer to read "Endangered"

NCMEC defines an Endangered Runaway as a child under 18 who is missing or on their own accord and whose whereabouts are unknown to their parent or legal guardian. These children are highly vulnerable and can experience homelessness when they are missing. According to a recent report from Chapin Hall,1 in 30 adolescent minors ages 13 to 17 endures some form of homelessness in a year.

Having facts is more supportive than rumors. Rumors interfere with the narrative. Get educated on the facts. Use those facts to guide you and stick to the goal. Let's bring Jarrett's case to a favorable resolution for all, especially Jarrett.

Our #1 goal is to find Jarrett and ensure he is safe.

We have measures in place if Jarrett is willing to call us. We guarantee his safety if he reaches out to us or law enforcement.

Jarrett, we know time heals wounds. Jarrett, we will help you! Just so you know, all you have to do is reach out. 24/7. Call/text 480-904-2628.

Thank you for your thoughts, prayers, and continued support for Jarrett.

It doesn’t take a law degree to know this! is infringing. If your not a FPC or other class included member while waiting for this horse 💩 to get thrown out by SCOTUS you may be under threat of federal felony charges if you possess one these disassembled or not.


Assisting w another. Give a shout if you know anything. Do not approach! Call police if spotted.

Leaked new models or elaborate hoax?


New Vortex Razor 6-36 Gen III click value of .27, that’s 1.08 instead of advertised 1. Requires extra calculations for longer shots (as little as 500 yards) if your going to accept this mediocrity in manufacturing. 2nd time I personally have witnessed a student w one of these new scopes experiencing issues.

Do you recommend owner send it back or live w it?!?!?


I have been hand drawing tall tree drills for years. Had a student offer to make some printed versions for me! Phenomenal job. This will cover students using either mil or MOA. Making sure your reticle doesn’t have cant and knowing your true click value is essential before “going the distance”. The box drill helps new shooters familiarize themselves w the scopes functions, and builds confidence in your equipment. This is often shot on the first day but not always. You have to be able to shoot roughly a 1 MOA group before doing this drill.

Credit due, I learned this drill at NTOA’s Sniper school, kept it in my digital dope book.

Echelon™ - Springfield Armory® 07/12/2023

Springfield going hard after duty guns at PD’s using a P320 like chassis system. While that concepts not new, the slide being cut to accept 30 different red dots in a low mount fashion w/o plates is. I am not a striker fired fan, but still found their new offering interesting. They are clearly looking to replace G***k as a duty issued sidearm.

Finally Hosting a Match. Not too many in AZ, come take a shot at it! #416


Who'd be interested in a 50 BMG benefit match for Archangel Companies (West Maricopa). A quick and simple 1000 yard and 1760 yard target match. 50% funds given to Archangel for Range improvements. One of the few ranges to still allow 50 BMG!!! Message and or reply if you're interested. Thinking mid December. For the sake of supporting Archangel all other caliber prob allowed too. Prob cap at 30 shooters, schedule out times, Match entry fee $40, range fee $20

Knight Vision® AN/PVS-30 Night Vision Weapon Sight - Refurbished | NightVisionNetwork 11/04/2022

Why the PVS 30 over 22 or otherscheaper options? It’s actually rated for up to 20x magnification. The PVS22 only 10x. Despite being a refurbished model, still really pricey, advances in tech here are slow and prices have not gone down in years. If you know a better deal, for medium to long range clip on devices, don’t hesitate to educate me!

What types of cases has your PI worked. While PI’s don’t often if ever disclose their clients, having been a detective, some of my cases are public knowledge from failed appeal attempts. One such link attached where a defendant appealed all the way to SCOTUS.

can help schools train and certify staff to be armed with the same or better training that is required of armed guards in this state. Training isnt just shooting, it’s how to properly conceal and knowing the law surrounding lethal force. Who better to prepare your staff than a retired detective and swat officer?

Possibly the reason I can’t get my SD/ES down, so I am going to do this now too, the never ending list of brass prep!


So… Berger 30 cal 185 grain Juggernaut, transonic promises, think I’ll test em!

So I learned anything over .50 is considered a destructive device. How did I encounter this info? The below prompted some research.

PCC’s might be fun, but they don’t pack the same punch. 9mm 124 grain barely supersonic, if it is, the 125 grain BO, 1700-1800 FPS! There’s a reason the military looked to and uses this caliber in the sub gun role now. My loads should make about 1700 FPS.

Load Development . Between the two of us we found a way to be accurate more testing to follow w slightly below 138 grains. CE def performed better than A-Tips. Some 3 round groups were nearly single holes (.38, .40), but we shot 5 round groups, didn’t need ego stroking.

The Honey Badger in 300 Blkout intrigues me. The $3500 price does not. An Aero build might be in the works for me! Don’t hold your breath though, … one piece at a time.

Army selects Vortex for Next Generation Squad Weapon – Fire Control. What is it? 04/22/2022

I have studied Wilcox’s Raptor and Silencer CO’s Radius. Very interested if this will be avl publicly but afraid to see a price given the Wilcox Raptor. Well looks like min two years from now hopefully big Army might drive cost down.

Testing a new Bullet and powder load for accuracy in 5 round groups (100 yard line). My normally accurate student/client shot on the left. In utter disbelief after the results I tried 5 rounds (on right). Everyone has an off day but this could have given us a false impression of the load. The load needs reworking anyways the SD is double digits, can’t have that for ELR work.
