Family members of Leah Roberts visited Bellingham Monday, Sept. 24, as part of the CUE Center for Missing Persons' national tour to revive interest in cases of missing children and adults.
Leah Roberts, 23, of Durham, N.C., went missing in Whatcom County in March 2000. Her vehicle was found abandoned and crashed off of a logging road east of Glacier. Whatcom County Sheriff's Office considers the case suspicious and continues to investigate leads.
CUE supporters are holding rallies in Washington, Oregon and California this month to draw attention to cases involving 60 missing people, four unidentified people and three unsolved homicides. Fifteen of the cases involve Washington state; the other Whatcom County case highlighted is Lisa Darrow of Bellingham, missing since Jan. 26 this year.
Inspiration for the tour began in 2004 when volunteers retraced Roberts' cross-country route to Northwest Washington. Details: ncmissingpersons.org.
