RUTHERFORD COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – There are possible new leads in an old missing person case in Rutherford County.

News 2 has confirmed that cold case detectives from the sheriff’s department visited Goose Creek, South Carolina, last weekend searching for evidence in the China Videon case.

Videon went missing on October 19, 1999 after going to get groceries. She was a 16-year-old student at Riverdale High School.

Her car was found abandoned eight months later at an apartment complex in Nashville near Interstate 24 and Harding Place.

Since her disappearance, there have been very few clues for investigators to go on.

Rutherford County detectives put up fliers with the teen’s picture in Goose Creek asking folks to call the homicide unit with information.

All they’ll say at this point is the persons of interest are “Chris” and “TJ.” Further details have yet to be released.

Videon is 5 feet 3 inches tall with a pierced belly button and several piercings in her ears. She also has a butterfly tattoo on her right hip and a scar on her right knee.

Anyone who sees her is urged to call 1-800-THE-LOST or the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office at 615-904-3046.
