Missing Christina Powell, a mother from Texas, was last seen rushing to work, but she never showed up

A Texas mother of two hasn't been seen in over a week. The last time anyone saw her, she was rushing from her house to work, but she never showed up.

Christina "Chrissy" Lee Powell, 39, hasn't been seen since she left her San Antonio home at 10:30 a.m. on July 5. Family members and officials told Fox News that she hasn't been seen since then.

The outlet got doorbell security footage that shows Powell was wearing dark pants and a long-sleeved shirt as she rushed out of the house to get to her job as a paralegal at the time.

Powell's mother, Claudia Mobley, who lives with her daughter, told Fox News, "She left here in a hurry."

Mobley said that Powell said she was running late for work and had left her phone and Apple Watch behind.

Relatives and officials said that the missing mother left the house in her black 2020 Nissan Rogue with the license plate number PYJ 8564.

She called her office before she left to let them know she would be late that day. But hours later, a coworker came to Powell's house to check on her because she hadn't shown up.

Mobley said that Powell's 12-year-old son opened the door.

"When my grandson opened the door, the woman asked, "Is your mother here?" Mobley said Wednesday on Fox News. "He told her, "No, she's at work."... He went to check, and of course, she wasn't here.

The mother with blonde hair and blue eyes and a 3-year-old child didn't say anything special to her mother before she left.

"We didn't really talk about anything in depth. Basically, it was "Good morning." Mobley said, "She told me she would be late. "Then she went to work, and I told her to be careful. I'm sure I told her "I love you."

She said that nothing seemed strange.

"I thought she was going somewhere, and I thought she was going to work. I think she thought she was going to work, too."

The next day, Mobley told the police in San Antonio that Powell was missing. An officer was sent to the house to ask questions, but Mobley said it was two or three days before her daughter was officially listed as "missing."

Fox got a police flyer that said Powell was 5'2", weighed 120 pounds, was right-handed, and had hair that was shoulder-length.

Powell needs medicine for a health problem that she doesn't have with her.

Since she has left, no money has been taken out of her bank account. Mobley said that the family hasn't been able to figure out if there's been any activity on the credit card account.

A longtime friend of the missing mother, Lauren Leal, told Fox that Powell had not worried about her safety or health. The only thing that "seemed off" that morning was that she was in a hurry.

Leal said, "I don't think she'd ever want her kids to go through what they're going through now."

The San Antonio Police Department has asked anyone who knows where Powell is to call the Missing Persons Unit at 210-207-7660.
