Tina and her ten-year-old sister, Duchess Savanah Adams, disappeared from Lancaster, California on September 30, 2012. A photo of Duchess is posted below this case summary. The girls and their nine-year-old sister were all being cared for by the same foster mother. Duchess and Tina were last seen by their foster mother at the Vallarta Supermarket in the 1800 block of west Avenue I. They had been shopping there earlier that day. The girls claimed they'd left something inside the store and asked to go back. Their foster mother took them to the store and waited outside while they went in. They never returned.
Investigators discovered Duchess and Tina had planned to run away from their foster home and live with their older half-sister somewhere in the Los Angeles area. Their biological mother lives in Colorado, but investigators haven't been able to locate their father, Anthony Ristick, who took care of them before they were placed in foster care. A photo of Ristick is posted below this case summary. He was considered a person of interest in his daughters' disappearances. The family had led a nomadic lifestyle.
Duchess was found safe in September 2014; no information about the circumstances of her recovery has been released. Tina is still missing and her case opened 2018 by Psychic Brian Ladd.
