Okay, here is what we know from the article:

Leanne and her husband where the only ones at the house.

Leanne left about 1:00 pm saying she was going for a walk.

She had no cell phone or any electronic device with her.

She had $60 in cash at most.

She had her wallet with credit cards but they have not been used at this time.

She had her wedding and engagement rings.

She was was last seen wearing jeans and hiking boots.
Was it just me or did anyone else, have the hair on the back of your neck stand on end?

Bearden said Garden Ridge police did say Leanne decided to leave the house on her own.

"She left on her own free will that is what she did that is absolutely true, but what happened after she left the house on her own free will I don't know," Bearden told me.

Both the Comal County Sheriff's office and Garden Ridge Police say neither have active searches going on right now.

Not me. He could have "offed" her anywhere in their trek around the world. Push her off a cliff in Bolivia, Mt. Everest, etc. Makes no sense to come all the way back to TEXAS and then "off" his wife.

What am I missing???????

Yep. LE is not searching but citizens ARE.

Yes, that was the piece of information I was worried about...

There were quotes from him in an article published earlier that really just did not make sense.

I live close enough also that I could go help - but I think the police are holding out on the public and there is no real purpose in searching the approximate area. I don't know what they know, but it appears they have learned something. I always get so mad when the public mobilizes and people spend their time and resources to help, only to find out that LE knew the person had left the state.

There is some bit of information, it seems, that is is keeping them from continuing the search.

I agree. They actually sounded kind of like they were mistranslated from another language. Odd, odd things to say.

I don't mean to sound like I think he's responsible - but I think he's covering for fears he has about what happened to her. This doesn't seem to be a case of a very happy woman who just went out for a neighborhood walk because it was a beautiful day. I think he has fears that are well-founded that something else happened. Whatever that is. I don't think this will end in finding a woman who was hiking and accidentally fell and got injured.

I find it highly unlikely that a woman going for a short walk would take her wallet but not her phone. The story would be more believable if she took nothing at all with her. No woman I know carries her wallet in her back pocket. Why carry a wallet in your hand when going for a short walk?

Typically, if a woman disappears but her purse is left behind, police tend to suspect foul play since it's pretty hard to survive without any money, credit cards or ID. If someone wants to make it appear that she left on her own they would be smart to get rid of the purse. Most people realize that cell phone pings are easily tracked so it would be smart to be sure that the phone is left behind. MOO

I'm leaning toward unpremeditated foul play and a well thought out cover up but that's just my opinion.

I try very hard not to judge family members on their interviews immediately after someone goes missing or worse. I always remind myself that if I were missing and a camera was put in front of my darling, or if my mom was missing and one was put in front of my dad, they would seem off. Probably over aggressive and not making much sense. Neither one would handle it well at all and most people would probably find it to be off. Who can say what is and isn't the right way to handle something like this, you know?

The interviews that always get to me are the ones that seem either falsely upset or way too calm and confident. Watching her husband he was calm, but he was also very unsure of himself and just fearful. It just felt like he is genuinely upset and afraid.

She didn't have a phone of her own according to her husband. He says in this interview that they shared a phone and he had been using it to look for a job so he was always keeping it on him. Not agreeing or disagreeing just sharing info.

FWIW, I don't have a theory on her disappearance, the following is for the sake of being devil's advocate.

Perhaps they didn't have "The Argument" in Bolivia, or Mt. Everest, etc....they had a blow out the day she went missing in TX. Maybe someone didn't ask for a divorce until they got to TX.... Someone got a text/call from a third party the day she went missing and it set one of the two off. None of these are actual theories necessarily pertaining to this case, just reasons why, if one spouse were to suddenly 'off' another spouse, they'd do it in TX as opposed to anywhere else in the last 2 years.

Also, does anyone know if he himself ever lived in this area of TX?

Sigh. Watched the video He knows where she's not and suspects she was looking at something real close and took a fall. He seems very intuitive. I wish he would he would have mentioned how he imagines her daytimes and night times might be (scary/alone/awful), out there missing. He mentions it's awful for him.

Why is he so bitter about the suggestion she 'went to Omaha or something like that"?

That interview feels like Ganesh Ramsaran to me. I really hope I'm wrong.

Another reason why TX as opposed to Bolivia, Mt. Everest, etc:

They were about to start their settle married life in CO, correct? Maybe the truth of their finances were suddenly about to become very obvious. I have zero evidence this is the case, just thinking on other cases where one spouse did something extremely rash in order to avoid being 'exposed' a liar or 'failure' by their spouse (Mark/Lori Hacking)http://www.utsandiego.com/uniontrib/...16hacking.html

Wow. That seems pretty unusual in this day and age. Especially considering they had to depend on one another for safety out of country for the last 2 years. What if they got separated on a hike? One of them got lost?

Even my advanced aged, retired, fixed income parents have 2 phones. They're not smart phones, mind you, but still.

I would suspect that LE might execute a search warrant for the in-laws house soon. Also, he displayed an odd facial expression, in the form of a little laugh at the end of his interview. Obviously, could be nothing I just found it a strange reaction. I hope she is found safe soon.

I think Tim Miller has some kind of quote about when a person goes missing, the family "snapshot" doesn't always look perfect and it isn't an indication that they are guilty.

This one just took an odd turn, though.

If she IS found in the way he describes - having suffered a fall - I'm going to be suspicious of him.

Former Roswell resident missing in Texas

ROSWELL, Ga -- It has been three days since a former Roswell resident's family has seen her. Leanne Hecht Bearden, 33, left her in-laws home...

...Law enforcement officials in Texas have no active searches for her and have no reason to suspect foul play at this point...

...Joshua Bearden said police told him his wife left of her own free will. "She left on her own free will, that's absolutely true, she did," he said. "But what happened after she left the house on her own free will, I don't know."

...Leanne Bearden's friends in Roswell said they have been asked by family members not to speak to the media. They have been told the family wants to make sure only accurate information is released about her disappearance.

Reminds me of Natalee Holloway's aunt telling Natalee's friends to keep mum. Hmm.

Let's remember we have no suspects in this case. Let's remember to treat the case players (husband, family) as victims as well.

Can anyone create some screenshots or maps of the area?

There is no reason to suspect foul play at this time. The cops certainly don't. I've spoken with his best friend on the phone and he said he is so distraught. He is fighting so hard to keep this in the news and media. I just don't see him being guilty and doing that. It doesn't make sense? If he did it, then why would be be fighting to get the cops and msm involved?
My gut tells me that she fell and is hurt somewhere or possible abduction.
But stranger things have happened.
Heidi search center and Texas search and rescue are helping with the search. The police are NOT, which really upsets me.
But at least these other two organizations are. I will get some screenshots and even take a video or two of the area she was last seen so you can have a visual.
