Colorado woman vanishes after returning home from trek around the world
Foxnews ^

Posted on 01/27/2014 10:30:32 AM PST by Red in Blue PA

Authorities have called off the search for a Colorado woman who disappeared shortly after returning from a two-year trek around the world, but her husband believes there is still work left to be done.

Leanne Bearden, 33, vanished on January 17 after she left a relative’s home in Garden Ridge, Texas, to go for a walk.

Pathetic that one can trek for 2 years around the globe with no problems, yet go missing on a walk in the US.

This country is circling the toilet.

It would be my guess she decided to keep walking.

Doubtful. Why would she have come home after 2 years then?

Absent any other information, that is my guess, too.

Wanders for two years, you know, leaving hubby alone for two years while she “experiences the world” or “finds herself”. . that sort of thing. Comes home and then decides to take a walk-about (perhaps with love interest met along the way).

Who knows.

“Pathetic that one can trek for 2 years around the globe with no problems, yet go missing on a walk in the US. “

Something wrong here. Did she travel with her husband? IF not, she may be tired of him and ready to move on. Lots of people disappear each year. She probably had somebody to see and a place to go.

BTW, I doubt her husband’s story. How many times do you tell somebody to take their time? It’s not a normal dialog for the event.

They were together on the two-year trip.

She might have thought she was ready, needed new shoes, was tired, there are many reasons.

Then she realizes she was happier out on the road. Probably has some mental issues.

Its a very understanding (or apathetic) husband that doesn’t care if his wife is gone for 2 years.

Where in the article does it say she was with him. I read both the link and the KSAT article.

Both articles are a little confusing. Leanne and her husband live in Colorado. After returning from a two-year trek, she was visiting a relative in Garden Ridge, TEXAS, went out for an hour-long without her cell phone and disappeared.

After searching a week and no activity on her credit cards, police gave up the search. Husband is not a suspect because he’s in Colorado.

Several open ends: May have met with a bad end. May be missing and waiting for the other shoe to drop. Maybe avoiding her husband.

Early in the KSAT article: “They had spent 22 months on an around-the-world trip and had just returned to the United States.”

” Husband is not a suspect because he’s in Colorado.”

The husband is usually the prime suspect when the wife disappears, and it is possible to drive from CO to TX.

I said, ‘How long are you going to be gone?’ and she said an hour,” her husband, Josh Bearden, told KSAT. “I said, ‘OK babe, take your time.’ That’s the last thing I said to her.”

There you go!

Didn’t she have a cellphone??? What woman leaves home with her wallet but without her cellphone???

They had just graduated from college — with college debt maybe??? So then where did they get the money for a two year around the world trip to 56 countries???

And after just two days LE calls off their search for her.

Something is amiss here.

Ah yes, classic tune.

I feel sorry for kids today, their “music” really sucks.

I read somewhere that Zepplin still sells 4 million copies of their albums per year....after all these years.

Well, I’ve got to run to keep from hidin’
And I’m bound to keep on ridin’
And I’ve got one more silver dollar

But I’m not gonna let ‘em catch me, no
Not gonna let ‘em catch the midnight rider

And I don’t own the clothes I’m wearing
And the road goes on forever
And I’ve got one more silver dollar

But I’m not gonna let ‘em catch me, no
Not gonna let ‘em catch the midnight rider

And I’ve gone by the point of caring
Some old bed I’ll soon be sharing
And I’ve got one more silver dollar
.....

CMIIAW but the “relative’s house” they were staying at was his parent’s house there in Texas and the parents were not at home at the time.

It doesn’t say if the parents were there or not...if they were, then that might be why hubby isn’t considered a suspect.

I googled her and read other articles. I forgot that wasn't in this article.

Interesting that you presume the worst about total strangers, though, when your presumption doesn't even make sense.

Desperate search for woman, 33, who returned from a two-year world trip then took a stroll near in-laws' home in Texas and hasn’t been seen in a week

She’s tiny. And he’s huge. Ain’t that usually how it is? He makes her feel like a helpless little girl. Isn’t that what most women want? So where’s the motivation for her to stray? This is coming off as foul play. Calling Milo Sturgis and Dr. Alex Delaware.

Could be, story doesn’t really speak to his alibi.
Without more details, it’s impossible to tell.
This is one case where having drones would have been quite helpful in the search I’d guess.

Yes, I thought of that guy too.

I had a cousin who disappeared, it’s really an awful thing to never know what happened to someone.

A few years ago I read about an airline stewardess who went missing somewhere (I’m thinking Kansas City, St. Louis, somewhere like that) while on a stopover. Like these other folks she went out for a walk from her hotel and disappeared.

I don’t now if she was ever located. I don’t know why that story stuck in my head, but maybe because of my cousin these stories all resonate with me.

According to WIKI the first one appears to be back in 1999.

It does say they won one in 2014, I presume that was last night.
