Saturday May 25th has been declared National Missing Children's Day.

The holiday was created by Ronald Reagan to honor the young victims of abduction.

The recent rescue of three Ohio women, who had been missing for 10 years, has given new hope to many parents of other missing children...like little Leanna Warner who has been missing since June 14, 2003.

Leanna Warner, commonly known as "Beaner", was just five years old when she disappeared from her Chisholm home.
She was last seen walking to a friend's house, just down the street from her own.

The Chisholm Police Department has now released an age progression photo showing what Leanna could look like at 15.

Police hope the new photo will generate fresh leads and bring the case back to the forefront of people's minds.

"Somebody knows something or someone that they have not brought forward yet. There's always people with information that withhold for some reason. All we want to do is bring closure to the family and this little girl back to her parents," says Chief Vern Manner, of Chisholm PD.

The progression picture was created by combining the features of the mother and the father and enhancing them for age.

If you have any information regarding the Leanna Warner investigation you're asked to please contact Chisholm Police.
