Mysterious disappearance of 21-year-old Mississippi mother who vanished without a trace in 2009 is laid bare by filmmaker who spent more than TEN YEARS obsessing over the case 

  • In Discovery+’s six-part series Relentless, director Christina Fontana explores the theories surrounding Christina Whittaker’s disappearance in Hannibal
  • Whittaker vanished on November 13, 2009, after going out with friends
  • There were eye-witness accounts of her being intoxicated and getting into an altercation with someone at the bar, which led to her being kicked out
  • Whittaker was last seen leaving another bar around 1 a.m., according to Fontana, and her cellphone was later found on the ground outside 
  • Fontana started investigating the case in 2010 after meeting Whittaker’s mother, Cindy Young, and stepfather, Alex Young, who were desperate to find her  
  • Whittaker’s mother is convinced she was taken to Peoria, Illinois, against her will and put into sex trafficking, while others believe she went on her own volition
  • There are theories that she was murdered or died in a hit and run, but there is no evidence to back up any of the claims, and the case remains unsolved
