Cheryl Ann Scherer was a young woman who disappeared from Scott City, Missouri in 1979. Foul play is suspected in her case.
Cheryl was last seen at the Rhodes Pump-Ur-Own Station self-service gasoline station where she was working. Between 11:40 am and 11:50 am, she disappeared from the station.
Cheryl's car was found with the keys inside in the parking lot and her purse was found inside the station. There was roughly $480 missing from the cash register. Investigators theorize that Cheryl was abducted after a robbery.
Serial killers Otis Toole and Henry Lee Lucas told police that around the time Cheryl disappeared, they kidnapped and killed a girl in the area. Lucas did not recognise Cheryl when he was shown a photograph of her, but authorities believe she was the girl because at the time she was the only girl reported missing in the area.
