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.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
