The case of a missing Hannibal woman has attracted more nation-wide interest.

Cindy Young, the mother of Christina Whitaker, told KHQA's Rajah Maples that CNN's Nancy Grace will devote an entire hour to the unsolved mystery next week .

Young spoke with a producer Tuesday afternoon about the plans for the show set to air March 1 at 8 p.m .

Young says the show agreed to the program after many people asked for it through a Facebook campaign.

This won't be the case's first coverage on Nancy Grace. The talk show host featured the case the month after Whitaker went missing in 2009.
