Authorities have been searching the area around their home and helicopters have been hovering overhead. The search for the couple is ongoing. Cristie is five months pregnant and was scheduled to work in Biloxi, MS on Sunday, but never showed up. Joseph was schedule to work in Los Angeles on Sunday and didn't show up either. Neither of their phones appear to be working either.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Buncombe County Sheriff's Office at (828) 250-6670 or Crime Stoppers at (828) 255-5550.
You may remember Cristie from season 8 of Food Network Star, but she was the first contestant eliminated. She was on Team Alton, and her culinary POV was "Healthy and Delicious."
Hopefully they are found safe, and I will keep you updated with any new information on this story.
