When was Monisha Leath last heard from?
Leath said she last spoke with her sister, Monisha Leath, on early on February 24.
She tried video chatting with her later, around 5 p.m, but she didn't pick up.
Instead, Leath said her sister's husband called back.
"He called me back on her line off the phone and was saying she was in the store," Leath said

She said she and the family have had little interaction with her sister's husband since her disappearance.
