Leanne Marie Hausberg was a 14 year old from Brooklyn, NY. She was Native American and had two younger twin sisters. On March 18, 1999, Leanne left for school as she usually did. That afternoon, she didn’t return home. Her parents eventually determined Leanne never reached school that day. She was never seen again. you have any information regarding the disappearance of Leanne Hausberg, please contact the New York Police Department at 212-473-2042.
Regarding the car ride, I lived in sunset park Brooklyn in the early 2000s, very close to the high school in your map discussion. At that time, you couldn’t hail a cab in Brooklyn unless they were heading back into Manhattan (and there were very few of them around, anyway, unless it was late at night on a weekend, there were rules on where cabs could pick up.) You had to use a car service around Brooklyn. Those rules changed around 2011, now there are green boro cabs you can hail in Brooklyn. Also, in all my years of NYC cab rides, I hardly ever gave the driver an address. This was before widespread GPS and Uber, of course. You’d just say “drop me on 73rd between 5th & 6th.” If you said “300 liberty st,” they probably wouldn’t know where it was exactly… So those details of the car ride don’t seem weird to me at all.
