Is it possible to miss these missions? Because i have beaten the game and can’t get several of the missions to appear. When I check my list of missions some of them are not there.

@Austin,

Some of these missions, you simply have to drive by the first location for the job to appear, or complete some other aspect of the game. I’m not totally sure if there’s a way to pass them by. If you still have all three protagonists by the end of the game, these missions should still be available as far as I’m aware.
