CLEVELAND — Family and friends rallied Saturday for a Cleveland teen who has been missing since 1995.
Christina Adkins disappeared on the city’s near west side when she was reportedly
18-years-old and five months pregnant.
This is the first rally that’s been held for Christina, and her advocates say things have changed dramatically since Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were rescued from Ariel Castro’s near west side home three months ago.
“Since May, we’ve had donors, and we’ve gotten the billboards that are rotating around town, so there’s a big difference between last year at this time and since May,” said the family’s spokeswoman, Heather.
Heather says authorities are also taking a renewed interest in the case and they hope people will come forward with tips.
Heather says Christina disappeared after leaving a friend’s home that was less than 100 feet from where she lived.
