Woman claims to be missing person WHO vanished from a bus stop in 1985


An American woman has come forward to claim she is the eight-year-old Pennsylvania girl who vanished from a bust stop in 1985.


Cherrie Mahan was last seen in Winfield Township, Butler County, nearly four decades ago on February 22 after getting off a school bus about 100 yards from her Cabot home.

The unnamed woman claimed she was the missing girl, who would currently be 47, in a May 23 post on the Facebook group ‘Memories of Cherrie Mahan.’ She did not publicly provide a picture, so it was unclear what she looked like.

Cherrie’s mother, Janice McKinney, was not convinced that the woman was her long-lost daughter.

‘I truly believe she thought in her mind that she was Cherrie. It did not look anything like Cherrie at all,’ McKinney told the Butler Eagle.

A spokeswoman from the Pennsylvania State Police told DailyMail: ‘We are investigating this woman’s claim to be Cherrie Mahan.’ 

‘I talked to the police they are investigating this is very hard on me please be aware I see everything,’ McKinney posted.

The heartbroken mother said this isn’t the first time someone has claimed to be her now-adult daughter, as many tips have trickled in over the years. 

McKinney explained that many reach out to her around the anniversary of Cherrie’s disappearance, and around August, the missing girl’s birthday month. 

‘In February and August, I expect craziness. This just hit me differently,’ McKinney told the Butler Eagle. 

Still, McKinney has not found the closure that she needs nearly four decades after seeing her beloved child.

‘There’s something somebody missed somewhere, and somebody knows,’ she said.
