Missing woman reportedly spotted in Austin

GARDEN RIDGE, Texas -- The family of a missing woman is now checking out claims Leanne Hecht Bearden was spotted in Austin.

The private investigator hired by the Bearden family, Charlie Parker, says there have been three reported sightings of a woman matching Bearden's description.

In each case, the woman was panhandling in an area of South Austin.

Acting on those tips, members of the Bearden family traveled to Austin on Wednesday to hand out missing fliers.

Parker adds the Austin Police Department is also checking out the reported sightings.

33-year-old Leanne Bearden was last seen January 17 when she reportedly went on a walk in the Garden Ridge area.

Her family now believes she may have left on her own, citing she was under some pressure following a two-year trip abroad.
