Circumstances of Disappearance
On Saturday, June 13, 1970, Sherri left her Pitts Street home about 11:30 to catch a bus downtown. Described as a quiet, studious girl, she had received a scholarship to attend a summer fine-arts program at Mount Tabor High School.
Sherri told her mother she was going to buy some supplies for school, scheduled to start the following Monday. She had also planned to buy some doughnuts for her older sister, and to make a payment on her mother’s charge account at Raylass Department Store. The department-store clerk told police that she saw Sherri about 16:30. She was not seen again.
Detectives spent six weeks canvassing downtown and searching for Sherri. She was never found, and there were few clues.
