Leeann Meyer search: Missing woman's Rav4 and truck found, foul play fears
On February 23, Wheat Ridge resident Leann Meyer, nicknamed Annie, had a phone conversation with a friend. That's the last time anyone has spoken to her.
Biog photos, video below.
The Wheat Ridge Police Department hasn't called her disappearance a result of foul play thus far. But the search for her has grown as the story has gotten national attention. And in recent days, there have been not one but two developments in the case -- the discovery of two vehicles belonging to Meyer. Details, photos and videos below.
In a March 5 release, the WRPD sent out a copy of Meyer's driver's license photo...
...and noted that she communicated with her employer at U.S. Bank via text message on February 25. After that, silence.
The release also included basic identifying information about her -- five-feet seven-inches tall, 130 pounds, blue eyes, brown/gray hair -- and the two missing vehicles. The first was a 1995 silver Toyota pickup with Colorado license plate 688DJH. The second: a 2009 silver Toyota Rav4 with the Colorado plate 975YUH.
The next day, officers circulated photos of vehicles like the ones Meyer owned. Here's the pickup....
...and here's a shot resembling her Rav4:
Again, there was no reference to a crime having been committed. But as noted in a March 8 piece by ABC News, one of numerous national outlets to pick up the story, investigators admitted to puzzlement over the refusal of Meyer's roommate, Melissa Miller, to meet with them in person. Miller reportedly called in sick for Meyer on February 22 (the February 25 text was also about not coming to work), and she told cops over the phone that Meyer had left with a woman named Cathy. However, she hasn't returned to the apartment they'd shared since March 4, when police were first notified that Meyer was missing.
Then, yesterday, a break.
