Circumstances of Disappearance
On October 19, 1999, China Videon left a beauty salon in the Jackson Heights Plaza in Murfreesboro and disappeared without a trace. China needed to get gas for her car, then planned to return home.
The mother knew something was wrong when she came home and China wasn't there, and notified the police. China's Mazda Protege was found abandoned at a south Nashville apartment complex in June 2000.
The groceries China bought the day of her disappearance were still in the car.
She was a student at Riverdale High School at the time. China Videon also worked as a clerk at after school in a grocery store.
Foul play is suspected.
