    Details of Disappearance

    Cheryl was last seen in Tigard, Oregon on July 6, 1991. She and her husband, Tom, were staying at a motel when, he said, she left him voluntarily. She has never been heard from again. Cheryl was born in Lake Stevens, Washington and had previously lived with Tom in Tenino, Washington. They have five children. After Cheryl's disappearance, Tom told the children their mother had abandoned them.

    Authorities believe Cheryl met with foul play, and her husband is considered a person of interest in her case. A photo of Tom is posted below this case summary. The missing person investigation was reactivated in 2012, but no one has been charged in Cheryl's disapperance; it remains unsolved.
