Leah was last seen by family members at 10pm on Valentine’s day before she left the family home the next morning and never returned.
She was last seen on Buzzacott Lane, Furzton, at about 8.15am wearing a black coat, skinny black jeans and Converse.
The 5ft 2in young woman has been described by Thames Valley Police as being of slim build with below shoulder length brown hair, and sometimes wears glasses.
Three people reported possible sightings that morning near Furzton Lake, triggering a major search, but police didn’t find any trace of her.
Since February 15 her social media accounts and phone have not been activated and there have been no withdrawals from her bank account.
The officer in charge of the search, Chief Inspector Neil Kentish, said: ‘Our officers who are investigating Leah’s disappearance have never dealt with a case like this before.
