Former Dallas Fuel coach Justin “Jayne” Conroy has been reported missing, and now his family is asking for help in locating him.

Jayne is a retired esports coach for both Dallas Fuel and the Overwatch World Cup’s Team Canada, helping to bring Team Canada to an improbable third-place finish at the 2018 Overwatch World Cup. Jayne has worked with the likes of Lane “Surefour” Roberts and Felix “xQc” Lengyel, among other famed Overwatch pros.

Now at just 29 years old, Jayne has been reported missing by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police’s Alberta branch. The official account tweeted the news, giving a short description of Jayne and stating that he was last seen on June 20, 2022 in Airdrie.

What happened to Overwatch coach Jayne?

The Overwatch community quickly caught wind of the shocking news and started sharing the tweet around social media. Many established members of the esports world, including the Toronto Defiant and Vancouver Titans, shared the tweet with their thousands of followers.

It’s currently unclear what led to Jayne’s disappearance. The former coach’s brother tweeted that his family is “extremely concerned for [Jayne’s] health, safety, and well-being,” leading some to wonder if Jayne left on his own due to a condition or illness, or if he might have been taken against his will. It all remains conjecture at this point.

The police as well as Jayne’s family have urged anyone with information of his whereabouts to contact the Airdrie detachment of the Alberta Royal Canadian Mounted Police at 403-945-7200.

For now, the Overwatch community will be waiting along with Jayne’s friends and family to hear any updates on this concerning situation.

UPDATE: Jayne’s family has announced that the former Overwatch coach has been found, much to the relief of Overwatch community members.
