The search for an Altoona woman who went missing more than a decade ago is now focusing on a Huntingdon County farm.
City police recently asked for the public’s help in locating Sherry Leighty, who disappeared in 1999.
Altoona and State Police detectives were issued a warrant on Monday to search a 150 acre farm located off Curfman Road in Warriors Mark. The property belongs to Kenneth Leighty, who was Sherry’s father-in-law.
State Police are not commenting on the investigation. City police received tips from family members that Sherry Leighty’s body may be buried on the farm. Kenneth Leighty was the last person to see Sherry on the day she disappeared. Investigators say Kenneth Leighty attacked police when they went to the farm to question him.
He’s now in the Blair County Prison facing assault charges.
