COLUMBIA — A Columbia woman has been missing since Oct. 26 and might be with a man charged with attacking her in September.
Cassandra Leaann Laronge, 27, is believed to be with Christopher Brett Mears, 35, according to a news release from the Columbia Police Department. Mears is wanted in Callaway County for a felony charge of domestic assault against Laronge.
Anyone with information on Laronge's whereabouts can contact the Columbia Police Department at 442-6131 or call the anonymous Crime Stoppers line at 875-8477.
"We do not have any information (if) she is being held against her will or has been harmed," Columbia Police Sgt. Joe Bernhard said in an email.
Laronge was last seen Oct. 26 leaving a friend's house where she had been staying. She was last heard from on Nov. 2, when she called a relative.
Laronge and Mears are suspected to be traveling in a 1996 Ford pickup pulling a camper trailer, with the Missouri license plate number 3UT609.
Bernhard said Laronge and Mears could be in Auxvasse, Mears' hometown.
"We don't know if she is in immediate danger, but we know there is a possibility," Bernhard said in a phone interview.
The department is checking with Auxvasse authorities about Laronge's whereabouts and circulating her photo, Bernhard said.
