In the weeks leading up to the June, 2003 disappearance of five year old LeeAnna ‘Beaner’ Warner, her parents noticed the child exhibiting odd behaviour. One day, she came home with a box of Barbies and doll clothes, but refused to say who gave them to her beyond ‘a little old lady’; she later packed a suitcase and said she was going to live with her ‘new family’. And two weeks before going missing, LeeAnna was found hiding in her closet, saying there were ‘monsters’ outside. But none of this could have prepared the girl’s parents for what was to come: on June 14, LeeAnna walked off to her friend’s house to see if the girl was home. Neighbours saw LeeAnna leave the house upon realising nobody was there, and then she mysteriously vanished without a trace. After draining a nearby lake LeeAnna spent time by, and ruling out a sex offender in the area and a local man arrested on child pornography charges, as well as LeeAnna’s family, investigators concluded the child was probably abducted by a stranger. She remains missing. The photo on the right shows how she may appear today.
