    • Christina Whittaker missing for five years, reward offered

    Where is Christina Whittaker?

    HANNIBAL, MO. -- It's a mother's worst nightmare -- a nightmare that's going on five years now.
    Christina Whittaker was last seen November 13, 2009.
    Now her mother wants her home, and police want answers.
    "I would never lose hope," Whittaker's mother, Cindy Young, said. "I mean, that's my baby. I'll never give up on her, and I still feel she's out there."
    Young never misses a chance to spend time with Alexandria who was just 6 months old when her mother disappeared.
    Young now has taken the search for her missing daughter in her own hands.
    "I still think she's in Peoria," Young said.
    Young has driven to Peoria many times in search of answers.

    Christina Whittaker missing 8 years, mother remains sure she is alive

    Before having a balloon release and ceremony to mark the eighth year of searching for Christina Whittaker, her missing daughter, Cindy Young of Hannibal said she is sure Christina is alive.

    And she hopes someone will encourage her to at least call her mother at <redacted>.

    Young’s message to her daughter is: “If you see this, it’s never too late. I pray for you.”

    She added, “Just a phone call would be the best day of my life.”

    As family members and friends gathered at the Consumer Ministries church in New London, Young shared her confidence that her daughter is alive, reporting many people have told her Christina was seen in Peoria, Ill., at times at a homeless shelter. Her last report was eight or nine months ago, Young said. “There have been leads to verify she has been in Peoria.”

    Young hopes anyone who knows anything about Christina will contact her, the Hannibal Police Department or another police department.

    The case of the disappearance of Christina Whittaker almost 10 years old

    Imagine your daughter or mom there one day, and the next gone. That’s been the reality for one Hannibal family for almost ten years. Hannibal police said they’re still looking for clues as to where she went.

    In the 200th block of 7th street near 7th and Church is where Hannibal police said they found the last piece of reliable evidence in the case of 21-year-old Christina Whittaker was found, just steps away from where she was last seen at sportsman’s bar just down the street on the night of November 13th, 2009.

    “She loved her family. Her baby was her life– very dedicated to her family, all of her family,” said Christina Whittaker’s mother Cindy Young.

    Young said Christina left behind a seven month old daughter, now ten, and was the type of person who always called her to check in.

    “They called me and said we got her phone and I just knew, I got a sick feeling and I knew something was wrong,” said Young recounting the day after she went missing.

    The Hannibal Police Department continues to investigate.

    “We have done a lot in those ten years– we have interviewed sometimes on multiple occasions, over 200 people, we have worked with about 45 different agencies, we have had leads coast-to-coast,” said Lt. Jennifer Grote with the Hannibal Police Department.

    Lt. Grote said after an initial investigation, they followed every lead they got, even questionable ones, but they couldn’t find more hard evidence than accounts from the night she went missing.

    Police said they’re still looking for any information that could lead them in the right direction, and they hope the 10th anniversary renews interest in the case. They said if you know anything to contact them, even if you want to stay anonymous, at (573) 221-0987 or online here.

    Hannibal Police said this case is one-of-a-kind in their files, as they don’t have any other missing person cases of this scope that are still an open investigation. They said they plan to keep the investigation open until they find Christina.
