Leanne Bearden remains missing, but there are some new leads being investigated in her case. Unfortunately, some of these leads would have likely been more useful in the beginning of her disappearance had her loved ones been more forthcoming with the information. Apparently the missing woman and her husband had previously used couch-surfing services during their travels -- which is a popular way to save money and meet new people if done properly. However, in cases where someone has vanished, this information could serve as a possible clue.
That's not the only new update in Leanne's case: Someone allegedly sighted her in Austin -- which indicates that she may not have even left Texas. Of course in any high profile disappearance, so called "sightings" of people come and go from one end of the globe to the other. That doesn't mean that the sighting was false, but I wouldn't hold my breath after this woman has been missing as long as she has without going detected.
