A home surveillance camera has captured the last known whereabouts of a missing mum as she rushed off to a job she never made it to.

The chilling video shows Christina Lee Powell hurrying out the door of her Texas home on July 5, after the 39-year-old called her office in San Antonio to say that she was running late.

The paralegal, who left both her iPhone and iWatch inside the house, as well as crucial medication, hasn’t been seen again.

Her black 2020 Nissan Rouge has also not been found.

“My sweet daughter Chrissy Lee is missing,” her mother, Claudia Mobley, wrote on Facebook.

“She left here Tuesday morning on her way to work. She never made it to work and we haven’t seen or heard from her since.

“I love her and miss her. Keep us in your prayers.”

The mother of two’s friends have also taken to social media, calling on the public for its assistance.

“Please help us find my childhood best friend Chrissy,” Lauren Perez said in a post on Facebook.

“She doesn’t have her phone because she forgot it at home.

“We are worried sick.

“Please, please share or send any information to her mom or myself."

The door cam footage from the quiet suburban cul-de-sac in Apple Creek shows Ms Powell walking away from the home, dressed in black with a white bag over her shoulder.

Her drive to work, which should have taken about 15 minutes, is an 11 kilometre route.

Since her disappearance, friends and family have retraced her journey, searching for any clues.

“The unknown is the scariest part,” Ms Powell’s close friend Lauren Leal told news station KENS 5. “It is fear in my mind right now.”

“It is hard to wrap our minds around where she might be, what could have happened.”

“My fear is not ever knowing anything. I meant I think what would be the worst is spending the rest of my life looking for her. I will never give up.”

The San Antonio Police Department has since launched an investigation into Ms Powell’s disappearance.

As she requires regular medication for diagnosed medical conditions, officers have classified the mother as “missing” and “endangered.”
