KILGORE, TX (KLTV) -
Almost three weeks have passed since a Kilgore mother went missing. Now, multiple law enforcement agencies are working together to find her.
When 43-year-old Christina Rea Davison did not show up for work in mid-May, her co-workers contacted the police. Neither Davison's friends nor family say they have heard from her since. Now, authorities are hoping her vehicle will turn up and they'll make a break in Davison's case.
Neighbors say it has been weeks since they've seen Davison's black car that's usually parked in the driveway of her Kilgore duplex. Kilgore Police searched Davison's home and say they found evidence suggesting a struggle might have taken place, but they're still not sure.
"We're working with the family and friends and anyone who knew her to try and develop leads," explains Kilgore Police Department Assistant Chief Roman Roberson. Police say Davison could have just up and left, but those who know her say that's unlike her. "Her behavior is not consistent. She normally is in contact with her family and friends. She normally shows up for work everyday and [for her to disappear,] that's just not consistent," says Roberson.
Co-workers at the Kilgore Whataburger where Davison was employed contacted police when she didn't show up for work on May 17. That same morning, 35 miles east of Davison's home, Marshall Police found her purse on the side of the road. Now the FBI says Kilgore Police have asked for their help. "They just have better resources sometimes with the federal government than we'd have as a small police agency," says Roberson.
The FBI says their role in the investigation is limited and that Kilgore investigators are taking the lead. Law enforcement agencies across the state have been told to be on the lookout for Davison and her vehicle. Davison has light brown hair and green eyes. She's five feet, seven inches tall and drives a 1992 black Toyota Camry with Texas license place number CL6D629 and VIN number 4T1SK12EXNU009494.
Marshall Police say they're also assisting in the investigation and have extensively searched the area where Davison's purse was found.
