Details of Disappearance

Cherry was last seen on or after September 14th 1976 in Waterville, Washington. This was the day she was released from jail. There’s been no sign of her since then and she wasn’t reported missing when she initially disappeared.

Cherry was believed to have possibly traveled to another part of Washington or Oregon after she was last heard from. She was known to hitchhike state to state at the time of her disappearance. Cherry was officially reported missing in 2004, 28 years after she was last seen.

Investigators have looked at the possibility that foul play was involved in her case. She was investigated as a possible Green River Victim when she was reported missing but have since ruled the killer out in her case. A photograph found in the locker of Rodney Alcala, a serial killer, matched Cherry’s description but her family said it was not her and he has also been ruled out in the case.

At the time of her disappearance, Cherry was described as a “free spirit” who would’ve contacted her family if she was still alive and well. Her disappearance remains unsolved.
