Ekaterina "Katie" Shcherbakova was a teenage girl who disappeared in 1998 in California. Foul play is suspected in her disappearance.
Katie was last seen leaving her friend's house at 8:00 p.m. Various articles of Katie's clothing were missing, and she was initially considered to be a runaway. However, the passage of time since she has last been seen indicates foul play was involved.
Charles Holifield is a possible suspect, as he has been suspected in the murder of a girl who attended Katie's school and physically resembled her. Furthermore, Katie disappeared nearby Holifield's brother's home, where Holifield frequently visited. In addition, Holifield was prosecuted for two sexual assaults on teenage girls, and is currently serving a life sentence for the attempted kidnapping of a jogger. Regardless, nobody has been charged in Katie's disappearance and her body has never been located.
