Christina Lynn "Christy" Carter was a toddler who disappeared in 1973 alongside her mother, Janet Carter, who was later found murdered. Carter's latest age progression depicts her at 50.


Janet Carter and her ex-husband were in a custody battle over their daughter. Investigators have considered the possibility that Janet went into hiding with her daughter and may have entrusted her with someone.

In October 1973, Janet's body was located on a roadside in Bryson City, North Carolina in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park. The remains were nude and bound; the cause of death was determined to be from asphyxiation.

It is believed, however, that Janet was murdered the day of her disappearance, which may suggest a potential fate of homicide for Christy.
