Search at Farm for Missing Woman Continues

The search for a missing Altoona woman continued Tuesday on a farm in Huntingdon County.
City and state police investigators returned to the 150-acre Warriors Mark property hoping to find clues to the 1999 disappearance of Sherry Leighty. The farm is owned by her father-in-law Kenneth, who officials say was the last to see her the day she disappeared.
Altoona Police reopened Leighty’s missing person’s case a year ago and since then family members have come forward to tell investigators that Kenneth Leighty might be responsible for her disappearance. The Huntingdon County District Attorney’s office is assisting in the case – but prosecutors won’t say what’s been uncovered so far.
Kenneth Leighty is currently in Blair County Prison after fighting with officers who questioned him concerning the investigation.
