My impression was that when Sarah was telling
Andy and Harry about BOB, Leland was ridiculing her supposedly psychic
vision.  So perhaps he didn't think that the vision would have any
connection to reality (such as it is), so he didn't look at it.
Also,  hsaw the sketch when he was in Ben's office, and the OAM
was nowhere around.

Andy did the sketch; Hawk was upstairs with Leland, searching Laura's

Another far-fetched explanation (which might sit well with those who
believe that Leland was molested in childhood) is that it took Leland
a few days before a repressed memory of BOB could surface.  When he
said, "I know that man!" it was far from casual.
