LEESBURG, VA

17 year old Loudoun County Girl Gone. Missing Since Friday

A 17 Year old Loudoun County girl has been missing since Friday, December 12, 2003. Christa was last seen Friday morning at Dulles Town Center Mall in Sterling, Virginia. She had driven to the mall in a 1993 green Ford Escort Wagon and developed car trouble along the way. She arrived at the mall at approximately 10:00 am, went in to pick up a package and was seen as very distraught by associates in the mall. She was given directions to a local auto parts store in Sterling and left the mall with her package. She has not been seen since.

The car she was driving was found on Shaker Woods at Wiehle Avenue in Reston, Virginia. According to neighbors, the car was left around 11:00 am parked in a turn lane at a 45 degree angle and must have been left in neutral gear as it apparently rolled into a ditch and became stuck later that afternoon. The car was found Saturday afternoon by Fairfax County Police unlocked with the keys in the ignition and her package still in the backseat.

Her family was notified and retrieved the vehicle. Friends and family have had no word from her at all.

Leesburg Police Officer, Corey Smith is heading up the investigation into Christa?s disappearance. Police have actively pursued several leads but have had no luck into locating the missing girl.

Christa is 5?7? tall, reddish brown hair, medium build. She wears braces and occasionally wire-rimmed glasses. She is possibly wearing a yellow and navy blue Tommy Hilfiger jacket and jeans.

Her distraught family and friends are desperately appealing to the public to give any information regarding Christa and her whereabouts to the Leesburg Police Department or any Local law enforcement agency as she is listed regionally as a missing person.

This doesn't sound good. I am thinking some "good Samaritan" offered to help her with her car. Prayers for Christa.

"St. Anthony be their guide in this search."

Yes, please St. Anthony intercede for the quick finding of this young woman.

He helps me a good deal, I hope he will help Crista's family find her. I hate these stories, especially at this time of year.

What is the source of this information?
This is not your child, is it?
(I pray not)
Is a friend, a family member, or a neighbor of yours?
Did the story come from your local news?

Any of this information, or any other information
might be helpful to the FReeper Sherlock Holmes sleuths.

I don't know if this is your child or someone you know.
But please continue to keep believing God for this young woman.
Our 34 year old son was missing for 14 days in Sept of this year, 03.
If I did not believe God had him in His sight, I would have faltered.
He was found, but very badly injured, and still has not much memory to this day.
I will pray believing God's Hand is upon the family of this girl and for her return.
God be with you! And God bless Christa.
Love to you and be at peace as much as you can.
