KNOXVILLE (WATE) - The Knoxville Police Department is asking for help from the public to find a missing woman.

Sharon Leinart, who went by Angela on the street, has been homeless in the Knoxville area for years.

Police say it's abnormal not to see her around.

Leinart gets a disability check deposited into her a bank account, but police say there's been no activity on the account for three months.

That's around the time she was last seen, when a witness said she made the statement that, "a man offered her a nice, warm room."

Leinart typically wears several layers of clothes and colorful makeup.

Anyone with information is asked to call KPD at 865-215-7212.
