Christina Lee Powell – found dead in the passenger seat of her vehicle three weeks after going missing

Christina Lee Powell aka Chrissy has been missing from San Antonio since July 5.

The last known sighting of Chrissy comes from her Ring doorbell camera at 10.34am on July 5.  She called her workplace (she was a paralegal at a law firm) to let them know that she was running late and was leaving her home to drive to work.

Chrissy was in such a rush to get to work that she left behind her phone, Apple watch and her necessary medication.  She can be seen on the footage, dressed in dark clothing and carrying a handbag.  She can be seen walking quickly and purposefully away from  her home.

It is believed that Chrissy left in her 2020 Nissan Rogue as the vehicle is also unaccounted for.

Chrissy’s mother Claudia Mobley spoke to the media and said:

‘We didn’t really have any kind of in-depth conversation. It was basically, ‘Good morning.’ She told me she was late,’ she recalled. ‘Then, she was leaving for work and I told her to be careful. And I probably told her, ‘I love you.”

The route from Chrissy’s home to her workplace, near I-10 and Vance Jackson Road, covers roughly 7 miles and takes about 15 minutes to drive.  Her family and friends have scoured the route for any sign of a wreck and have found nothing.  They have been checking jails and hospitals and no sign of Chrissy has been found.

‘The unknown is the scariest part,’ family friend Lauren Leal told news station KENS 5. ‘It is fear in my mind right now. 

‘It is hard to wrap our minds around where she might be, what could have happened.’ 

‘We just want you home,’ Leal told the local CBS affiliate. 

‘My fear is not ever knowing anything,’ Leal said. ‘I mean I think that would be the worst is spending the rest of my life looking for her. I will never give up.’

Chrissy’s mother told the media that police came to her home on July 6 to take a missing person report, but that it took days for anything to actually happen.  

On July 14, police in Kerrville, an area around one hour away from Chrissy’s home in the Apple Creek area released this statement:

On July 25, Christina was found dead in the passenger seat of her vehicle. The car was parked in the lot of a restaurant.
