Christy Luna: Progress made in Christy Luna missing girl case, mother feels hopeful


29-years after a Greenacres girl, Marjorie "Christy" Luna went missing, her mother is not giving up on finding her.

Luna was 8-years-old when she went missing. She was last seen walking in her neighborhood near the Greenacres Grocery, now known as the Belk General Store, just hundreds of feet from her home in 1984.

New developments in the case are giving Luna's  mother, Jenny Johnson, hope.

Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office Detective Bill Springer says one of their main suspects, Victor Wonyetye, died in jail in December, 2012.

Wonyetye was also a suspect in the case of a missing girl from New Hampshire, Tammy Blanchard.

Investigators hope that more people will come forward now that may have been too afraid to come forward when Wonyetye was still living.

Johnson pleas for answers. "Please come forward. Wonyetye Can't hurt you anymore. Please stop my suffering."

Investigators give Johnson a new picture of what they believe Luna would look like every five years. "She looks so much like me," said Johnson.

Springer said he was given a new lead in 2010 that the department is still following. They are not identifying the person. Springer still hopes for information about Wonyetye.

"The best thing in the world that could happen to me is to solve this case," said Johnson.

"You know, if your little girl was missing for just a couple hours even a couple minutes, the panic you'd  go through. You can just imagine how Jenny has suffered for 25 years," said Springer.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS
