Cherrie Mahan: Nancy Grace America’s Missing

A new tip described as “potentially crucial” could be the key needed to end the near quarter century search for Cherrie Mahan. Just 8 years old when she disappeared after getting off her school bus on February 22, 1985, Mahan would be 34 years old now.

Police say the bus stop was about 50 yards away from her home in Winfield Township in Western Pennsylvania. The bus driver and other children remember seeing Cherrie get off the bus, but after that she was gone. Over the years reports have swirled about a 1976 model van with a painted mural of a snow-capped mountain on the side, but police say there was also a small blue car near the bus. Despite seven boxes filled with evidence and hundreds of tips, none have led to Cherrie.
