Sheriff's office concerned for well-being of Leyla Mastova McCullagh, seeks public's help

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is asking residents for help in their search for a missing Leesburg woman.

A release from the office Thursday said Leyla Mastova McCullagh, 36, has not been seen since Aug. 13. At the time, deputies said, she was with a family member at her house on Evergreen Mills Road.

"At the time she appeared to be suffering from an unknown medical condition," according to the release.

Detectives are concerned for McCullagh's well-being, they said in the release.

Anyone with information about McCullagh should contact the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office by calling 703-777-0475.

Missing for 18 days and were just now hearing about it? Plus, maybe someone should consider providing more info about her beside lived on Evergreen Mills Rd and might have a medical problem. Sounds to me like no one is too worried about finding her.

Fishy!! Police work, let's go! Hopefully you know much more than you are releasing, and if not, shame on you.

I am a coworker of hers and we are all very concerned about her well being. Her house has been searched by her ex husband who mind you wasn't the one who reported her missing. Everyone here has given all the information we have about her relationships with him, friends, family. She isn't from America, but she wouldn't leave her son and just leave. As for the unknown medical condition, most of us here are pretty sure we know what they are talking about. She never showed up for her scheduled shifts and she has never missed work without calling. Her car was still in the drive way and the house was in it's normal order. As far as anything else, that's all most of us know. Hopefully she is found safe. All this isn't normal for her, she talked to her family and friends all the time. All she's had since she split from her husband.
Help us find her.. September 02, 2012 at 05:00 AM
AC- Check your facts before you post .. Leyla is a member of my family and I would appreciate if you don't have anything helpful to post then don't post anything .. No need for comments from people who clearly know nothing about her, this case or our family! Thank you, Praying to hear from her soon.

I apologize that you seem to be offended. You're absolutely correct, the only things I know about Leyla are the things she has told us for the past almost year she has been a coworker. But be advised she did confine in a fellow coworkers about certain person(s) in her life. If sharing every little dirty secret she told us helps find her or possible someone(s) who could of harmed her, then so be it. I didn't put nearly 1/4th of the things she shared with me and other people on here. But you can be Dang certain we spilled it all to the appropriate people to look into. So as her "family member" I take your "offended nature" and raise you the things we shared to possibly help find her. Whether the stories we told that SHE shared with us on multiple occasions are going in the right direction or not. We were asked to share and we laid it all out for them. Again, I apologize if what we shared with the police offends you, but there are way more people out here than you trying to do the right thing for her as well.

I would be very interested in updates on Leyla's whereabouts. Leyla used to work for my husband and I in NC. I pray that no matter what the circumstances are that she is found safe. Sometimes it is necessary to air someones "dirty laundry" in order to help them, and in this case to help find Leyla safe and sound. Not only does she have her son, but she also has a beautiful daughter in Turkey as well, For both of their sakes I do hope she is found safe! If any other information on her whereabouts is available, if possible please someone keep me and her friends here in NC updated ..... my e-mail is myfreestuff2109@aol.com Thank you

What's the status of this? Has she been found? I met her once, she was full of life and so wanting to make new friends here in VA. I hope even though the longer she's missing it's harder, but my hopes and prayers are that she is found safe and well.

I spoke to the police last week. I was friend with Leyla. Even thought her husband new I was close to her, I never hear from him or direct the police get information from me. I approach the police with what I knew. So far no trace of her and for what I know no cooperation from her supposed close family. I spoke to hear days before, and she seem to be doing more than okay.
