MISSING PERSON
Name: Christina Stoddard
Nickname: Sheba
Gender: Female   Race: Caucasian
DOB: 04/07/1980   Age: 42
Height: 5ft3in   Weight: 120
Hair: Brown   Eyes: Brown
Last Known Location: Around the Walmart on Clinton Highway
Missing Persons As Of: 10/26/2007
Nearly 14 years after Christina Stoddard was reported as missing, Knoxville Police Department Special Crimes Unit investigators are continuing to seek any information from the public regarding her possible whereabouts or the circumstances of her disappearance.
 
On October 30, 2007, Christina was reported missing at the age of 27. She was last seen four days before that, on October 26, 2007, in the area of the Clinton Highway Wal-Mart at around 12:30 p.m. At the time of her disappearance, she was approximately 5’3 and 120 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. Christina often went by the nickname “Sheba” and had a tattoo of a skull on her left bicep.
 
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.
 
Investigators are confident that there are people with information about the circumstances of Christina’s disappearance and hopeful that after 14 years’ time those individuals will share that information.
