The Authorities at the time had said they had a phone call from a man who sounded tensed few days after they found the jeep. The man reportedly called to report a sighting, he was said to have told the police that his wife had seen someone who through description could have been Leah, around their area looking lost, but the man was said to have hanged up before the police could get further details.
