Police seek woman missing for 14 years

Christina Stoddard

Almost 14 years to the day has passed since Christina Stoddard was reported missing.

She was 27 years old when she was last seen in the area of the Wal-Mart on Clinton Highway on October 26, 2007. A brunette with a skull tattoo on her left bicep, the young woman went by the nickname of “Shelba,” was about 5 feet 3 inches tall and weighed around 120 pounds.

“Much about the events surrounding Christina’s disappearance remain unknown. Though there is no definitive evidence to indicate foul play, her extended absence is at a minimum cause for suspicion,” said KPD spokesperson Scott Erland.

“Today (Tuesday) is the 14-year anniversary of when she was last seen and Friday is the 14-year anniversary of when she was reported as missing,” he said. “That felt like an appropriate time to try to get some renewed interest on the case. As always, the hope is that with the benefit of time anyone with information will be willing to share that information.”

KPD investigators are urging anyone who has information that could help find her to submit it to East Tennessee Valley Crime Stoppers, which is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days a year, he said.

Crime Stoppers is available online at www.easttnvalleycrimestoppers.org, by phone at 1-800-222-8477 or via the P3 Tips mobile app. Tipsters will remain completely anonymous and be eligible to receive a cash reward.
