Rooftop September 19, 12.00pm (after) None Jeff and Natalie have lost each other on the rooftop of the warehouse - you'll come across them the very first time you pass through the air ducts. Jeff is by the elevator - walk over and speak to him first, and he'll join your party for 5,000PP.

Take him around to the other side of the rooftop to find Natalie; she'll come running and the pair will have an emotional reunion - keep your camera handy and take a photo when the PP icon pops up for a massive bonus and enough PP to get The Artiste achievement.

He is later found by Frank in the process of transforming into a zombie.
