    IMO, creating confusion in the hope that a POI gets tangled in a web of their own lies. Eventually one lie will contradict an earlier lie and so on, until that person has lied themselves into a corner with no way out.

    This is a little complicated, but if you’re still interested in reading this thread, here’s the right way to do it.

    Leave the thread as ‘watch’—do NOT click on ‘unwatch.

    Click on your name, Scorpiette, in the bar at the top of the page—you’ll see a lot of options. Now click on ‘contact details’—the third option down, in the left column. At the bottom, you’ll see: “Receive email when a new conversation message is received” unclick that—so the box is empty. Now the thread is watched, and you can easily check up on it, by clicking ‘watched threads’—but no more email spam!

    I think there might have been some sort of disagreement between Leah and her parents.
    I think it is odd that they did not see each other in the morning or even just shout out goodbye as they left.
    I think they left at 7:30 and Leah left around 8:00 so she must have been using the bathroom or making some breakfast around this time,unless she was deliberately avoiding contact.

    Good thought, but just wanted to say I think they said that her mother starts work at 7:30 so they will have left a bit earlier.

    They can use IMEI, pins it down when it's a common name or if they have a phone they can't identify.

    This post lands at random.

    Please be very careful when discussing case players. You may comment on what is said about them in MSM, or what they themselves say or do in MSM, but in doing so do not make accusations or insinuate their involvement.

    Excerpt from The Rules - Etiquette & Information

    VICTIM FRIENDLY

    Websleuths is a victim friendly forum. Attacking or bashing a victim is not allowed. Discussing victim behavior, good or bad is fine, but do so in a civil and constructive way, and only when such behavior is relevant to the case.

    The "victim friendly" rule extends to the family members of victims and suspects. Sleuthing family members, friends, and others who have not been designated as suspects is not allowed. Don't make random accusations, suggest their involvement, nor bash and attack them. Posting their personal information, including names, addresses, and background data -- even if it is public -- is not allowed. That does not mean, however, that statements made by family members and other third parties cannot come into discussion as the facts of the case are reported in the media.

    This must just be sheer agony for her family now. I can only imagine rumours must be running wild locally but they will be so limited in what they can say.

    It could be simply to divert media attention away from his personal account, there's clearly a lot of focus on family and that must be difficult for a young person to handle.

    Also they may be limited in what they can talk about freely due to investigations ongoing (potentially advised by LE)

    To new members and veteran members who may have forgotten, general comments from social media accounts are not allowed for discussion at Websleuths. The social media accounts of victims or perps are allowed to be linked, but their "friends" accounts or general comments by others are off limits.

    For what is and is not allowed, please review The Rules and specifically The Rules - Social Media: Facebook, Twitter, etc.

    Any questions, please private message a moderator for clarification.

    So horrible that Mother’s Day passed with no contact. Now it is coming up to Easter and the family face the prospect of another occasion without their loved one. I really hope that someone passes some info on to the police so that Leah can be found or at least that this mystery becomes closer to being solved. I am all for ‘grassing’. Do it through Crimestoppers if you want to be anonymous. I still think someone knows something more about how, why and when she disappeared. Tell the police or tell Crimestoppers. I was wondering with the lack of updates from the police if they were actually investigating properly (sorry to them) but it does seem that they are working incredibly hard on behalf of Leah.


    Leah has not been in contact for so long. Someone knows more. I feel so very sorry for Leah’s mum, dad, brother and sister (and other family members) for every second of pain they are going through.

    I agree.
    It looks strange to us outsiders...that mores not being said or expressed, but we all know the saying.. 'Truths stranger than fiction' and so there has to be a good reason for the lack of updates from all involved.

    With respect to the traditions and reasons some women wear a Burka for religious and cultural beliefs.

    I would think it an important consideration to factor in to the investigation ‘If’ and only if a missing person chose to go missing, as to why they may not have be been seen since.

    I highlight ‘ a consideration’ being the only reason I mention this.

    Could also go hand-in-hand with any other changes to appearance; ie. hair coloring/cutting, differing clothes from her usual attire, perhaps even different colored contacts (even if she doesn't require any eye-wear) to change the color of her eyes. So many things if she has chosen to be 'away', and wishes not to be found. IMO MOO

    Ok, well in this case I don't know how common a name "Leah Croucher" is, but it's possible they only submitted a name to search for and would therefore not know if a SIM bought in someone else's name was being used in the phone.

    I’d be really interested to know how long LE have known about the possible sightings on the 15th around Furzton Lake.

    So would I.
    Perhaps they wanted to check that they were credible witnesses before they released it to the media.

    I am guessing at least one was after the reward was announced because otherwise surely the reward appeal would have said a possible sighting near the lake. Perhaps a sighting by a second person / pair made it more compelling and thus was issued in the latest appeal.

    I am not suggesting that the reward itself was so significant to the sighting but maybe the publicity around it and the fact that she was still missing prompted the call.
