Police create Twitter profile of missing girl


On Memorial Day weekend in 1984, 8-year-old Christy Luna disappeared without a trace, and 33 years later, Palm Beach County law enforcement officers are taking unusual measures to try to solve the case.

They are allowing her image and her “voice” to take over the Palm Beach County Sheriff Office’s Twitter and Facebook pages, where she “shares” in real time what she may have been thinking and experiencing during the kidnapping.

Starting on May 26, one post after another has flooded the social media pages, with Christy’s photo, and details of her disappearance.

One of the tweets reads:

“Let me take you back to 1984, the time when I was a happy child, living in Greenacres with mommy, my sister Allie, Mama Kitty and her babies. Who would have thought that tomorrow would be the day I disappeared and was probably brutally beaten, raped, sold or murdered?”

At the time she disappeared, Christy lived with her mother and sister, Allie, 10, in Greenacres, Florida. She walked just 500 feet down the street to Belk’s General Store.

The family had just returned from a trip to Dubois Beach, and Christy went to the store to buy food for their cats. She was never seen again. Law enforcement officers have dedicated their entire careers to trying to solve the case, but no arrests have ever been made.

Below are some of the Twitter posts that share her story:
