  • Details of Disappearance
    Leah left her hometown Raleigh on March 9, 2000 on what has been described as a "trip of self-exploration". She did not advise anyone of her destination. She left in a white 1993 Jeep Cherokee, North Carolina Lic# JVP-2881.

    The vehicle was found abandoned on a logging road in Whatcom County in Washington on Saturday, March 18, 2000. The car was involved in an accident near Mount Baker, WA in a federal park.

    Receipts in the vehicle show gasoline was purchased in Brooks, Oregon in the early morning hours of Monday, March 13, 2000. A ticket was purchased from the theater at Bellis Fair Mall in Bellingham on March 13, 2000 at 2:10 PM for the movie, American Beauty.

    Cat food was found in the car which leads investigators to suspect that she may have taken her small kitten with her. Extensive searches of the area around her wreck provided few clues in her disappearance.
