Tina Bowen was last seen in the early morning hours of July 14, 1997 at her family home on the 500 Street of Silverdale in southeast Conroe, TX. She was asleep during this time. One of her friends had stopped by her house sometime that night. In fact, friends had a habit of stopping by her bedroom window and tapping it to get her attention and her family believes the night she disappeared someone came to her window and she went outside to meet them and something happened. Theres a high possibility that whomever it was, it was someone who Tina trusted.
Her mother noticed she wasn’t in her room at 9AM when she went to check on her. So sometime between 3:30AM and 9AM, something happened. She left all of her possessions behind indicating she planned to come back.
Tina’s family don’t believe she would ever leave willingly without contacting them. Many years have passed and they believe someone out there knows something and are asking for any information that will bring them closure.
Police suspect foul pay.
