MP of the week: Leanne Hausberg

This week’s featured missing person is Leanne Marie Hausberg, a fourteen-year-old girl who disappeared under mysterious circumstances from Brooklyn, New York on March 18, 1999. She’s been missing now for longer than she’d been alive prior to her disappearance. The late nineties was when I first became interested in missing persons cases, and I remember looking at her poster with a certain interest, in part because at fourteen she was relatively young for a runaway.

For years Leanne was classified as a runaway, but it’s unclear what happened to her and her family believes she came to harm. Beyond that I don’t have much on her. If she’s still alive, she’ll be thirty in August.
