SAN ANTONIO -

It has been almost three weeks since Leanne Bearden, 33, disappeared from a Comal County home and part of the search effort has now shifted to the Austin area.

A Facebook post on a page created to help find Bearden stated Wednesday, "There have been a few recent sightings of someone that meets Leanne's description in different locations in Austin."

Family members have been searching the area, but officials said no sightings have been confirmed in Austin as of Wednesday night.  

Bearden was last seen on Jan. 17 when she reportedly went on a walk from her in-laws home in Garden Ridge.

Her family believes she may have left voluntarily and they have hired a private investigator to help track her down. Anyone with information on Bearden's whereabouts has been asked to call Garden Ridge police at 210-651-6441.
