Details of Disappearance Christina disappeared from her home in Thousand Palms, California on June 8, 2003. She was last seen the next day at the Red Roof Inn; a friend saw her leaving the hotel with an unidentified male. He is described as about 22 years old, with a tattoo on his left arm. He drove a blue late model Ford Explorer.
Authorities believe Christina may have been a witness in the child molestation case against Douglas J. Marino. He was arrested in July 2003, a month after her disappearance, and charged with six counts involving a seven-year-old boy, and authorities believe he had abused an eight-year-old as well. However, their prosecution efforts were hampered by their inability to locate Christina. It's unclear how the case against Marino concluded.
Although Christina is classified as a runaway with many agencies, she is missing under suspicious circumstances and there are rumors that she met with foul play. Her case remains unsolved.
