There was no solid evidence that LeeAnna was kidnapped, although police believe this is the most realistic option.

Police thought they had found another lead when LeeAnna’s footprints were found near Lake Chisholm.

“Beaner, come home. We miss you. We won’t stop looking for you. We’re not going to sleep until we find you. We love you,” they said in 2003.

LeeAnna’s father has opened up about how he felt after his life was turned upside down.

“It’s like being punched in the stomach. I don’t know, how do you explain that? Your life just stops,” he said.
