Allow the FBI to investigate the disappearance of Leonna Wright

0 have signed. Let’s get to 7,500!

We, the concerned citizens of the community ask that Anderson County Sheriff's Department allow the assistance of the FBI to help shed light on the Leonna Wright Missing case that is surrounded by inaccuracies, inconsistencies, and what seems to be a lack of a proper investigation. We also request assistance from the CARD team which is the national Child Abduction Response Deployment team. The CARD team works to recover victims as quickly as possible and helps apprehend those responsible for taking them. We are concerned about the whereabouts and well being of this precious child and would be grateful if you continued the search to bring home Leonna Wright. 

It has been almost 3 years since one year old Leonna Wright went missing. On Saturday June 6, 2015 Leonna Wright disappeared from Pendleton, SC. The one year old little girl is about 29 pounds and was last seen wearing a long white T-shirt. The toddler’s mother discovered her daughter gone Saturday morning around 9:30am from Apartment building A of Edgewood Square Apartments located in Pendleton SC. The boyfriend of Leonna’s mother, Travis Jones was taken into custody on Saturday morning for an outstanding bench warrant unrelated to the case. The mother was not home at the time the one year old went missing. The boyfriend Travis Jones was watching the child at the time of the disappearance. More than 200 deputies, firefighters and other emergency personnel from Anderson and Oconee County searched 2 miles in every direction of the Edgewood Square Apartments with deputies, dogs and search crews from multiple jurisdictions to no avail. They also searched areas of Townville SC which lead them to a deadend with no discovery of the toddler or leads to her disappearance. The sheriff's department has since called off the search and declined the help of the FBI.

NOTE: CARD team investigators are seasoned veterans of crimes against children cases—especially child abductions—and have received extensive training. While some local law enforcement agencies may only work one or two child abduction cases a year, CARD team agents work these kinds of cases all the time, keeping their unique skill set honed. They often deploy to the abduction site with FBI behavioral analysis experts and technical specialists in tow. CARD team agents also work closely with National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime coordinators, members of the regional FBI-led Child Exploitation Task Forces, and representatives from our Violent Crimes Against Children Section at FBI Headquarters.
