Christina Roof was a 27-year-old woman living in Everett, Washington at the time she went missing. A few weeks prior to her disappearance, on March 2, 1996, Christina attempted to cross over the border from Washington state into Canada at the border crossing north of Lynden, Washington. Boarder control denied her access.

Exactly 3 weeks later, on March 23, 1996, Christina disappeared. She was last seen in Whatcom County, Washington. The following day, on the afternoon of 03/24/96 her silver 1986 Mazda was found abandoned at the end of Froberg Road, less than 300 yards south of the U.S. / Canadian Border. Later that same day a Canadian resident contacted the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to report a distressed woman, who identified herself as Christina, who was in the street on Old Yale Road, British Columbia, Canada. By the time authorities got to Old Yale Road the woman was gone.

Christina’s vehicle and the area surrounding it was searched and no evidence of foul play was found. There was also no evidence to indicate that the missing woman ran off willingly and her whereabouts remain unknown.

She has not contacted friends or family since her disappearance. It’s unclear why she wanted to go to Canada and authorities aren’t sure if she ran off to start a new life under a different identity or if she met with foul-play.
