Ottumwa Courier

OTTUMWA — OTTUMWA — Friends and family are seeking the public's help in locating an Ottumwa woman.

Relatives of Christina Louise Thomas, 39, say they haven't seen or heard from her since Sunday and that her disappearance is unlike her, especially since she has four children at home.

Thomas is described as standing 5'5" tall, weighing about 160 lbs. She has blue eyes, strawberry/blonde hair and two tattoos — a panther on her left leg and a flower with the words "Christy and John" on her left shoulder. She also wears glasses.

She was last seen wearing jean short capri pants and a "Duck Dynasty" white tank top.

Her vehicle is a 1999 white Chevy Blazer with an Iowa license plate 423 TIA. The vehicle has a white trailer hitch on the back and the words "In memory of Chris Jacobs" appears in the back window.

Her mother, Nancy Thomas, said the family has reported her missing to local law enforcement and those with information are encouraged to call the Ottumwa Police Department at 641-683-0661.
