Yesterday, peta2 became aware of a missing student situation in Huntington, WV which has the entire campus of Marshall University on the look-out. While Leah Hickman had planned to go home for the holidays to spend time with her family in nearby Point Pleasant, WV, she has now been missing for nearly a week and counting.

This situation was brought to our attention because a local news story reported that she had just recently been inspired to be a vegetarian after watching videos on PETA’s website. As the article states:

“[Her friend] described the missing woman as “the sweetest girl you could ever imagine,” adding that “when she first started at Marshall, all she talked about was wanted [sic] to find a job where she could help people. “A couple of weeks ago she called me out of the blue crying hysterically because she had watched some videos on the PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals,) website. She was like, ‘I’m going to become a vegetarian.’ [it’s like eating meat] broke her heart.””

If anybody has any information that could be helpful for Leah’s safe return, please contact the Huntington Police Department (304-696-4420).

A MySpace page has been set up in an effort to raise awareness about this situation, which can be found here.

Ryan!

    this case has been bungled from the start by the local authorities,
    many have said their own massive egos kept them from calling on help from the federal FBI,
    they sent critical DNA evidence to a lab IN ARIZONA , thats almost 3,000 miles away fro WV folks,
    why not do the logical thing and sent it to WV state police crime lab ???????????????
    i am planning a video production on this strange case which has definate occult overtones , being that it happened last december very xmas , if u can recall the benet girl in colorado a few years back (her parents were guilty by the way) mrs ramsey hailed from parkersburg wv
    i have contacted a well known psychic investigator and will be filming the story in huntington wv in the spring of 2009 , dvd’s will be made to purchase for $ 19.95

    My deepest thoughts and prayers go out for Leah’s family. She sounded like such a wonderful girl. My son, Matthew Wilson, has been missing on the same day as Leah. Please pray for us and for his safe return to home.

    The police have possitively i.d.ed the body as Leah’s even though, as a friend, we already kinda knew it was her. We are all heartbroken, Leah was everything that it said in that article and more… She was the kindest person I could have ever hoped to met in my lifetime. I only hope that they find who has done this so that this never happens to another family and friends.
    All my love to everyone for you support but please keep the prayers coming for Leah’s family.

    A body has been found near the laundry room in a crawl space, no formal id of the body had been made when I last heard. God bless Leah’s family.
    Rest in Peace, Leah.
