Missing Since: March 18, 1997 from Muskogee, Oklahoma
Classification: Endangered Missing
Date Of Birth: November 21, 1980
Age: 16 years old
Height and Weight: 5'1, 133 pounds
Distinguishing Characteristics: Caucasian female. Brown hair, brown eyes. McChurin has a scar over her right eye. She has a tattoo of a heart on her right hand and several additional tattoos on her body.
Details of Disappearance
McChurin was last seen in Muskogee, Oklahoma on March 18, 1997. She had taken a taxicab to a friend's residence near the corner of F and Elmira streets. She was sitting on the front porch when her friend's mother went inside the house for a few moments. When the mother returned, she saw a large dark-colored vehicle turning the corner. There was no sign of McChurin and she has never been seen again. It is not clear if the unidentified car was involved in McChurin's disappearance. An extensive search produced few clues as to her whereabouts.
McChurin does not have a history of running away from her home. She had a job at Tastee Freez in March 1997; on the day of her disappearance, she cashed her first paycheck and spoke about purchasing a car. She has a daughter who was a year old in 1997. The child is currently being raised by McChurin's parents.
In late 2005, investigators searched a dried-up swamp in a rural area east of Summit, Oklahoma for evidence in McChurin's case. They found an assault rifle, an ammunition clip, eight .762-caliber bullets which could have been fired from the rifle, and a bone. The bone turned out to be from an animal. It is unclear whether the other items have anything to do with McChurin's case.
Authorities suspect McChurin may have been taken against her will by person(s) unknown. Her case is classified as a runaway with some agencies. It remains unsolved.
