Details of Disappearance Cherice was last seen in Beckley, West Virginia on October 1, 1993. She dropped her husband, Norman Stephens, off at his place of employment in the 200 block of George Street in the Industrial Park area of Beckley during the day. She was driving a white Dodge Daytona at the time; a photo of the car is posted with this case summary. Cherice has never been heard from again.
Cherice's West Virginia driver's license expired in 1996, three years after she vanished. Her husband refused to take a lie detector test in her case, and filed for divorce a month after she disappeared.
A private investigator hired by Cherice's father believes Norman didn't work at all on the day of Cherice's disappearance; the investigator also believes the car she was driving was sold after her disappearance. Norman has not been named as a suspect in his wife's case, however, and maintains that she simply left him.
Foul play is suspected in Cherice's disappearance; it's uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning. Her case remains unsolved. In 2014, she was declared legally dead.
