Family hands out fliers one year after baby Leonna Wright went missing


PENDLETON, SC (WSPA)- Monday marks one year since the disappearance of Leonna Wright. Her family spent Monday night passing out fliers at the Edgewood Square apartment complex where she went missing last summer in her honor.

The one-year-old baby was last seen at the apartment complex in Pendleton, June 6th of 2015.

Her mother left the baby at home with her boyfriend while she celebrated her sister’s wedding. She woke up the next morning realizing her baby wasn’t in the house.

In the past year, the family has passed out flyers and even put up billboards to help find her.

The Anderson County Sheriff’s office says it’s received lots of tips but none have led them to Leonna. After a birthday celebration over a week ago, they recieved two new leads that they are following now.

“We have hope that baby Leonna is alive. I know there is someone out there with information,” said Capt. Garland Major, Anderson County Sheriff’s Office. “Someone knows something. Any little thing may seem insignificant, in reality could be the thing we need.”

If you have any information in this case, you’re asked to call the Anderson County Sheriff’s office at 864.260.4400.
