Mother reported Fayette County woman, SUV missing Sunday
State police in Uniontown are asking for the public's help in locating a Fayette County woman who has been missing for nearly a week.
Leah Marie Owens, 31, of Bullskin Township was reported missing Sunday, according to Trooper Nicholas Richards.
“She was reported missing by her mother,” Richards said.
Owens is described as about 5 feet, 7 inches tall and 125 pounds with long black hair and green eyes. She was last seen wearing a peach-colored hooded sweatshirt and blue shorts.
Police reported her maroon, 2007 Ford Escape sport utility vehicle also is missing. It has a cracked windshield, multiple scratches on the passenger side door and dents in the hood, police said.
The license plate number is JYJ-6349.
State police spokesman Trooper James Broadwater said the case is being handled as a missing persons case.
“We have no reason to believe there was any foul play at this point. We're going to pursue every lead we receive,” Broadwater said.
Attempts to reach family members for comment Friday were unsuccessful.
Anyone with information on Owens' whereabouts should call police at 724-439-7111.
