Spokane man missing after bizarre call

The mystery of the man’s disappearance began with what his fiancée described as a bizarre ending to a phone call.

 Leighton Welch, 35, was walking in Spokane and talking on his cellphone to Michonda Weaver, his girlfriend of nearly four years.

Weaver said he described a steep cliff, then said he’d been spooked by a pit bull in the area. Then, a crash and a scream before the phone went dead. That was March 28.

No one else has either, she said, and his family is frantic.
