Circumstances of disappearance
Cheryl said goodbye to her mother, Rachel MorriŽn, who was going to visit a friend. The child told her that she was going outside. She was last seen playing near her home. Rachel returned home at 16:00 (4pm) and Cheryl wasn't there, but she wasn't concerned as it was a nice day and she knew that her daughter would still be playing outside. When Cheryl didn't return by dinner time, Rachel became worried. The child's whole family searched for her and later made a missing persons report. She has never been heard from again.
Cheryl's parents received an anonymous letter in 1996, ten years after her disappearance. Its author claimed to know details about the girl's disappearance. After broadcasting Cheryl's case in Vermist, a Dutch missing persons TV program, police got many tips. These tips helped to determine that Cheryl was murdered by child serial killer Michel S., who was also convicted of the murder of Dutch girl Jessica Laven and two German boys. Michel S. died in prison in September 2002. Cheryl's body has never been found.
