Mother hopes missing daughter will be found 32 years later


Thirty-two years after her 19-year-old daughter disappeared, a Scott County mother says she’s finally found hope she’ll get the closure she’s looking for.

Cheryl Ann Scherer’s mother and sister now say watching families who’ve also searched for decades make progress now gives them the courage to put out a call to anyone who might know who took Cheryl Ann more than three decades ago.

“It was a beautiful day,” recalled Libby Scherer. “Then I got the telephone call and it turned our lives upside down.”

Libby says the last time she saw her oldest daughter, Cheryl Ann was on her way to work at a Scott City gas station. She also remembers the last time they spoke. Libby says Cheryl Ann called her just before she was apparently abducted. Not long after that, Libby got another call. This time it was from authorities telling her Cheryl Ann was missing.

“I just broke down and cried,” said Libby.

Authorities believe sometime before noon, Cheryl Ann was kidnapped. Her purse and checkbook were left at the gas station. Her car was in the lot with the keys inside. Money was missing from the gas station register.

“I have no idea who would want to take her, would want to hurt her,” said Libby. “She was such a good girl.”

It happened yards from the busiest street in Scott City and yet there were no witnesses.

Another element: A normally busy grocery store right next to the gas station happened to be closed that day.

“You go back and forth with IGA closed was it somebody local that knew?” wondered Cheryl Ann’s younger sister, Diane. “And then it could have been somebody off the interstate.”

Diane was just 14.  She remembers Cheryl’s boyfriend and her friends went searching back roads, and at that time networked with truckers on the interstate to relay information about the search. Those were clearly much different methods than technology allows today.

“I always think if it had been a different time would she have been found,” said Diane. “When I see somebody now finding people 20 or 30 years later I definitely have hope.”

Now they focus on the happy times, remembers a happy blue-eyed redhead and a little girl who loved drawing and animals. Cheryl Ann was prom queen and had lots of friends. Now, the Scherer’s say they want the mystery solved.

“Truthfully I don’t want to know all the details, I would just like to know what happened then we can lay her to rest,” said Diane.

Her mother Libby has this to say: “I still think there’s somebody out there. If they would just come forward you don’t know how much it would help this family. It would be such a blessing.”

Cheryl’s father Raymond passed away six years ago without ever learning what happened to his oldest daughter. Now the family wants to thank the people who stood beside them then, and now, along with the Scott County Sheriff’s Department who continues to work the case.

Filed under General, Spotlight

On April 22,1998  a young lady named Peggy Carr was out running errands in broad daylight, and was in a Wilmington shopping mall parking lot, she was abducted by two men that recently been released from jail and were on “what we know now” over a week long crime spree of stealing, committing murder and unspeakable crimes. Peggy’s remains were recovered 11/18/98  over seven months later in Bladen County, a rural area located in North Carolina.

CUE Center for Missing Persons, although founded in 1994 had never been involved in such a high profiled case like this; later Peggy’s tragic death, her life, the search for her, the recovery and her legacy became the tool that shaped the foundation, of what is known today as the CUE Center (Community United Effort)  is considered by all who are a part of our center the “landmark” case. Peggy Carr’s larger than life photo still hangs today at the doorway of CUE as a reminder of how far we have come.
