On April 17, 1979, Cheryl went to work at Rhodes 101 Gas Station in Scott City, MO. She had been employed there for over a year and was considered a model employee.
Sometime between 11:40 AM and 11:50 AM, authorities believe she was abducted. Scherer was last seen wearing a light blue slip-on sweater with white trim, a dark blue windbreaker with a white-trimmed hood, and brown corduroy pants. She had on tiny pierced earrings, a silver ring with a small diamond, and a yellow-gold necklace with a one-inch cross. She has a dime-sized mole between her shoulder blades and a small mole half an inch from her navel.

If anyone has information regarding Cheryl’s whereabouts, please contact Chief Deputy Ron Merideth with the Scott County Sheriff’s Office at 573-545-3525.
