Christina Bussell has been missing for 2 years.
An East Tennessee community is praying for the safe return of a woman who went missing exactly 2 years ago.
The last time anyone saw Scott County's Christina Bussell, she was walking on Highway 27 near the Kentucky, Tennessee border, according to her family. At the time of her disappearance, investigators with the Scott County Sheriff's Department said the circumstances surrounding her case were suspicious.
Saturday night, her family and friends gathered in the Winfield City Park to pray for her safe return. They said her disappearance was out of character. Bussell's sister Alisha Gregory said Bussell used to contact the family all the time.
"She was a happy person, always making you laugh," Gregory said.
The Scott County Sheriff's Department says its investigated every lead possible so far, but Bussell's family wants more to be done.
"The law has done a few things, but we think if the FBI or TBI would get involved, it would help a whole lot," Gregory said.
Bussell's disappearance has also taken its toll on her children, who are five and eight respectively.
"They want closure, but they most of all want mommy," said Debra Stephens, who is the grandmother to Bussell's children.
The Bussell family is offering a 500 dollar reward for any credible information that helps with her case. If you have a tip, you can contact them at 606-354-4375 or 864-381-3246. They also ask that you contact either the Scott County Sheriff's Office or McCreary County Sheriff's Office with your information as well.
