"It started out a normal school day," says Columbia Police Department Spokesperson Jessie Hayden.

"Kristina got up that morning, and she got ready for school and she left to walk the short distance from her home to Jeff Jr. High School where she was attending."

But by 10 o'clock that night Kristina hadn't come home. And school officials later told Columbia Police she never came to school that morning.

Details of Disappearance
Kristina said goodbye to her sister and a friend, then departed from her family's residence to walk to school during the morning hours of October 19, 1994 in Columbia, Missouri.

A witness observed a four-door vehicle stop along Kristina's street and watched as Kristina spoke to the male driver. Kristina and the man talked for a few moments, then she entered the car and they drove away. She never arrived for her classes at Jefferson Junior High School and has not been seen again.

Kristina had run away from home once before after she got in a fight with her mother. She and her mother weren't arguing when she missing in October 1994, however. She may have been accompanied by a 22-year-old male when she disappeared in 1994. Her case was originally classified as a runaway, but authorities aren't sure whether she left of her own accord and she is now listed as an endangered missing child. Her disappearance remains unsolved.
