Missing Teen Found

A Loudoun County Virginia teenage girl, missing since Dec. 12, 2003, has been found unharmed in White Oak, MD after being featured on America’s Most Wanted

A 17-year-old girl, who was feared to be have been abducted, was found safe tonight in White Oak, Maryland. Her recovery is the direct result of her case being profiled on Fox Television’s America’s Most Wanted: America Fights Back.

Police in Leesburg, Virginia had been looking for 17-year-old Christa Rogaliner since her apparent disappearance on December 12, 2003. Christa had skipped school that day and drove her parent’s car to the Dulles Town Center mall.

Cops say Christa apparently damaged the family’s 1993 green Ford Escort station wagon and asked workers at the mall for directions to an auto parts store. She was last seen standing near the car in Reston and talking on a cell phone.

The car was found abandoned the next morning in a Reston, Virginia neighborhood with the keys in the ignition and a present for Christa’s older sister in the back seat. The family originally believed that Christa was afraid to come home because she damaged the car.
