Investigators said, A blue 1976 Dodge van with a mural of a skier on a mountain was seen nearby and may have been involved in her disappearance.

According to the local news publication, Cherrie’s mother, Janice McKinney doesn’t believe the woman claiming to be her now 46-year-old daughter is actually Cherrie. “I truly believe she thought in her mind that she was Cherrie,” McKinney told the Eagle. “It did not look anything like Cherrie at all.”

She is the fourth woman who to claim to be Cherrie in the year since the girl disappeared. A $500 award has long been offered to anyone who provides any information about Cherrie and an arrest.

I don’t know why I feel that way.” She added “I wish that we [every investigator who has looked into Cherrie’s case] could all get together and sit and talk”. “There’s something somebody missed somewhere, and somebody knows.” Pennsylvania State Police didn’t immediately return a request for information.
