    Sheri was my very best friend when I lived in Vermillion, She was our next door neighbor. We were together ALL the time, When we moved to ND we still remained very close. Thank YOU for this update. I HOPE & PRAY they find something for the final close on her wonderful loving soul.5231

    It’s so great that this may finally be solved. It’s sad that the Vermillion police department have looked and tried solving this or 42 yrs and never looked in the water near the bridge, a half mile from where the girls were supposed to be that night. Seems pretty ridiculous. This could have been found a long time ago, and saved a lot of pain for their families and friends. Let’s hope it gets solved now!

    So, Tom, what’s your problem. Is the Vermillion police department responsible for the disappearance? And since when does the jurisdiction of a city police department extend into another county? It seems you are so self important and smarter than everyone else, then why did you not find the car 42 years ago.

    I enjoy cold cases and true crime stories and found this quite by accident while I was surfing. So sad and tragic that these two gals lost their lives and all this time, everyone wondering what happened. I can’t imagine losing a child and waiting 42 years to find out what their fate was. I was only 6 years old in 1971 and Pam and Cheryl would have been the same age as my older brother. but they’ve been in heaven all this time and now the healing can begin for the friends and family who have spent all this time trying to fill the void. God’s richest blessings to all of them.
