    CHRISTINA "CHRIS" ZANE

    Missing Since: April 1982 from Mobile County, Alabama
    Classification: Endangered Missing
    Age: 20 years old
    Distinguishing Characteristics: Caucasian female.

    * Christina was not listed in NAMUS*

    Zane was last seen in Mobile County, Alabama sometime in April 1982. She was reported missing on April 28. She has never been heard from again. Robert Steven Gilchrist was the last person to see Zane before her disappearance. On May 11, 1982, he went to the police and said he'd met Zane at a bar and went home with her that evening, and a few days later she came to his apartment and had a "sex orgy" with him and his male roommate. He said he never saw her again after that.
    Derenda Henderson, Gilchrist's sometime live-in girlfriend, went to the police in July 1982, while Gilchrist was in jail for an unrelated offense. She said Gilchrist had told her on several occasions between May 11 and early June about how he beat Zane to death and buried her body in a swampy wooded area. As a result of Henderson's information, Gilchrist was charged with capital murder on July 15. He made four additional statements to police about Zane's disappearance after that. At his trial, Henderson testified about his alleged confessions to her. Gilchrist claimed he'd been there when Zane was killed, but hadn't committed the homicide himself; he stated Henderson had found him with Zane and murdered Zane in a jealous rage. He was convicted of her murder.

    Zane's body may be buried in the vicinity of Todd Acres Road and Kooiman Road in Mobile County. It has never been located.
