The Scioto County Sheriff’s Office says Leah Dillon, 24, of 1103 Collingwood Ave., Wheelersburg, has been placed on the Missing Persons list. Deputy Paula Gibson responded to a missing person complaint on Monday in which a woman told her that Dillon and her son had been living with her, and that Dillon had gone for a walk and had not returned.


Gibson later got a call from another city from a woman claiming to be Dillon, but would not give an address so that local authorities in that area could check on her to verify that she was Dillon. Dillon was then advised if she comes back to Scioto County to contact the Sheriff’s Office.


Meanwhile, because they cannot verify her identity, Dillon will remain on the Missing Persons list.
