Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Scherer worked at Rhodes Pump-Ur-Own Station self-service gas station in April 1979 in Scott City, Missouri during a robbery. She was considered a model employee. She was at work on April 17, 1979 when she was apparently abducted by unknown suspect(s) between 11:40 - 11:50 AM. Scherer's car, keys and purse were left behind in the store. Approximately $480 was missing from the cash register. There were no witnesses the day she was kidnapped. Although it happened in the middle of the day, there was little traffic in and out of the Scott City Plaza where the service station was located because the major store in the plaza, an IGA grocery, was closed.
Scherer was a college student working to put herself through school. She had just paid her car insurance and had a boyfriend.
