The car was found by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Search Team led by Officer Joe Canfield using sonar equipment. It was found about one mile south of Mt. According to authorities, it was located about a mile south of the Mt.
Canfield’s team was assigned to Lee’s case in 2018 reported. After researching Leeman’s story and speaking to retired law enforcement officers who had previously attempted to solve the mystery of her disappearance, they decided to explore the waters.
