It was eight years ago today that a 29 year old Hannibal woman was last seen.

There was a gathering of family and friends of Christina Whittaker at a church in New London Sunday.

Whittaker was last seen at Rookie’s Sports Bar late on the night of November 13th, 2009.

At the gathering Sunday, Whittaker’s mother, Cindy Young, said she believes her daughter was abducted and has been a victim of human trafficking.

Young also said she believes Whittaker is still alive, and has been told that her daughter has been seen in the Peoria area.

If anyone has information on the whereabouts of Christina Whittaker, they’re asked to contact the Hannibal Police Department.
