Details of Disappearance

Leinart was last seen in Knoxville, Tennessee on January 26, 2013. She spoke to her sister and said she'd been picked up by a man who offered her "a nice warm room" and she was staying at that person's home. She has never been heard from again. Her sister, who lives in Indiana, reported her missing on March 26.

Leinart was homeless at the time of her disappearance and was known to frequent the areas around the Salvation Army and KARM near downtown Knoxville. Her only source of income was a disability check which was direct-deposited into her bank account; there has been no activity on her account since she was last seen.

Her case remains unsolved; little information is available as to her fate.
