Missing Person Missouri Martina Anderson

Martina Anderson, 38, was living with her parents in Independence, Missouri, when she went missing.  In 2016, Martina’s mother came home to find that Martina was gone.  She had taken her belongings with her.  Before her disappearance the family said that Tina was acting differently and out of character.

Her sister, Lashanda stated, “She was believed to be talking to herself in third person and acting as if everyone was after her . She lost a tremendous amount of weight because she refuse to eat any food and said that everything had poison it.”

Tina seemed to know she was sick and it was getting harder for her to control.  Her family was in the midst of getting her help when she went missing.

In 2017, Martina who also goes by the nickname Tina, reached out to the family and made contact.  She talked with two of her sisters by phone, and she began to talk about being aware of certain people.

“The conversation was brief and callback number was not traceable,” said Lashanda.

In January 2018, a police report was filed by her mother because no one had heard of her whereabouts. Tina was traced to the San Luis Obispo area, by an arrest report from July 2017.  In September 2017 her car was towed by Tip Top Towing in Santa Monica, California.  In the report, she was listed as a transient.

What happens when you file a Missing Person report


Since you’re here

I have a small favor to ask. More people are reading Missing Persons of America than ever and asking for their family member to be shared. I do it because I believe that every single missing person matters, and they all need equal attention. It can’t be done any quicker, and with less boundaries than social media. Last year, I was bombarded daily with more and more cases to share.  I found myself falling behind as I work 10 hours a day to feature missing people. Also, the network has grown so large that we are in need of an internet host that can serve the growth, so the website does not go down. Many don’t realize that Missing Persons of America independent, investigative posting takes a lot of time and hard work to produce. Frankly, I need funds. If everyone who reads this website, who likes it, can help, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $1, you can support Missing Persons of America and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
