Episode #66: Cherrie Ann Mahan - Missing (1985)

When 8 year old Cherrie Ann Mahan got off the bus in front of her Butler County driveway on February 22, 1985, she likely planned to walk up the weaving path to her home, hug her parents, Janice and Leroy, show off the school pictures she got to bring home that day, and prep for a sleepover with her friend that night. But somebody else had other plans. At some point between stepping off of her bus where another parent had seen her and making it to her front door, Cherrie Mahan was abducted and has never been seen again.
