Per her sister: there was finally some media attention in Leanne Hausberg‘s disappearance, in the form of this local TV segment. When I first started getting interested in MPs around 1998-1999ish, Leanne’s case — she went missing from New York City on March 18, 1999 — is one of the first ones I connected with. I’ve wondered about her ever since.
Unfortunately, even with the TV thing I still don’t have a lot of info in her disappearance, and neither, it seems, does anyone else. She just seems to have evaporated from the street corner where she was last seen. The police classify her as a runaway, and her family believes she met with foul play, but really there seems to be no evidence pointing to any particular theory in her case.
