Twelve-year-old Sherry was last seen on June 6, 1984 in downtown Greenville, Alabama at approximately 9:30 in the morning.
She and her stepfather were at the First National Bank and he gave Sherry a dollar to buy a soda. Sherry left the bank and was last seen crossing the street towards the Chevron gas station. When her stepfather returned to his pick-up truck fifteen minutes later, Sherry was gone.
After Sherry disappeared, there were three reported sightings of her by three different people & each time, she was accompanied by a man described as about 50 years old, 5'8 tall with a husky build, a weathered complexion and crow's feet around his eyes. One witness who saw Sherry at a truck stop in Conley, Georgia said that she called the man B.J.
All three witnesses stated that Sherry was noticeably upset, disheveled and appeared to be dazed. The last sighting of her was in 1984 at a mall in New Orleans, Louisiana, but none of the sightings were confirmed.
Sherry is described as a tomboy who enjoyed farm work and knew how to drive a tractor in 1984. Her mom doesn't think that she ran away from home because Sherry had been looking forward to watching her favorite TV show & visiting her grandma on the day she went missing. Sherry didn't appear to have any significant problems in her life.
Sherry has brown hair & brown eyes. She has a two-inch scar on her abdomen and a wide one-inch scar on her upper back near her shoulder. At the time of her disappearance, she had a mixture of baby & permanent teeth & fillings in two of her teeth. Her hair was also longer than shoulder-length at the time she went missing.
She was last seen wearing a red long-sleeved plaid flannel work shirt, faded jeans, new gray sneakers with Velcro fastening and a watch with a black band. Her nickname is Little Farmer.
Sherry's case remains unsolved & her disappearance is classified as a non-family abduction.
