Community Gathers For Missing Baby

The Pendleton Community is keeping hope alive for a 1-year-old who has been missing for 3 months.

Leaona Wright disappeared from her mother’s apartment in early June. She has not been seen since.

Wednesday night, community members in the Pendleton area held a vigil for Leaona Wright.

Several leads have fallen short with the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office.

Wright’s mother, Kiara Sullivan, was arrested shortly after her daughter went missing, on unrelated charges of child neglect. This is after deputies say her 3-year-old tested positive for drugs.

Wright’s boyfriend, Travis Jones, was also arrested.

No one has been charged in connection to Leaona’s disappearance.

The FBI has been brought in to assist in the investigation.
