A Mother's Lament[]

Main article: A Mother's Lament

Leah is found crying in Riverfield Jewelry in Al Fresca Plaza. When Frank West approaches her to ask if she is okay, she grabs Frank and demands to know where her baby Grace is. After Frank pushes her off, he offers to help Leah find her baby. She then reveals that Grace has already been killed and eaten by zombies. She requests Frank to leave her alone, but Frank refuses to let her die among the zombies.

She then agrees to follow Frank to the Security Room. Due to an injured ankle, she walks very slowly and has to be carried.

Kindell's Betrayal[]

Main article: Kindell's Betrayal

After being rescued, Leah will wait in the room with the green door. When Kindell Johnson believes that there is no helicopter coming in three days, he rallies up the other survivors in the same room, including Leah, to leave the Security Room.

If Frank does not stop Kindell's mutiny, Leah will leave the Security Room along with the other survivors. They will no longer count towards the number of rescued survivors.
