April Williams was born August 17, 1983 in Washington D.C., Baby April was 3 months old when she was kidnapped on December 3, 1983 by an unknown female. She hasn’t been seen or heard from since, nor has her abductor been identified and brought to justice.

An artist drew a composite sketch based on the description of the unknown abductor. Keep in mind that the description is based on what the kidnapper looked like in 1983, and she may look entirely different now that she’s 30 years older so it’s important to try an focus on certain facial features including the eyes, shape of face, nose, etc. A very good identifying factor is the mole (or birthmark) witnesses said they seen on the woman’s right cheek. She is described as a black female who had reddish hair (at the time), about 5’3” – 5’4”, weight unknown (although she is described as thinner rather than heavy.)

According to police she may have gone by the name “Latoya”, although it may have been a street name or an alias.

Strangers, esp females, who abduct babies are typically rare. When it does happen many speculate that the unknown woman could have fertility issues and may have kidnapped the child to raise as her own. This gives more hope to one day finding April Williams alive. April would be turning 30 this year and could be a mother herself, not realizing the ‘mother’ who raised her was actually a criminal who kidnapped her.

Baby April was last seen wearing a blue sleeper with a red number one along with a pink and white snowsuit. She has a birthmark on her right wrist.

A Facebook page called Are you the kidnapped April Williams? was created and has only gained 98 ‘likes’ despite millions of Facebook users on the internet daily. The abductor could have kidnapped April to raise her as her own child. She would be 30 years old this year and may be a mother herself, not realizing she is a kidnapped victim.

A photograph of missing teenager Kara Nichols has appeared on a Las Vegas escort website.

The picture of the 19-year-old aspiring model appeared on MyRedBook.com but police said the photograph was taken from another source and that Miss Nichols did not post it.

The advert promised that the girl pictured was the actual escort.

Police leading the search for the model said that claims she was in LA were untrue.

11/22/12 COLORADO SPRINGS, CO — Amateur model may have fallen victim to ‘human exploitation’

An aspiring model has been missing for six weeks and was last seen in Colorado Springs area after telling her friend/roommate she was heading to Denver, CO.

Nineteen-year-old Kara Nichols wanted to be a professional model and would take amateur photos hoping they would fall into the right hands. On October 9, 2012, the young woman left her Colorado Springs home that she shared with a roommate and hasn’t been seen or heard from since. The roommate told authorities that Nichols had told her earlier that day that she was heading to Denver, but left without taking her pocket-book and money. She spent most of the day with two unknown woman who are being described as ‘brunettes,’ and then promptly disappeared.

She hasn’t signed onto any social media websites, including Facebook which, according to those who know her,  is very “uncharacteristic.

The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office calls Nichols disappearance ‘suspicious’ and believe she may have been lured under the pretense of a ‘model career’  by a human exploitation group that exploits wannabe/amateur models. They would not elaborate on what kind of exploitation but many are coming up with their own assumptions and theories, including a victim to a  human sex-trafficking ring.

EPSO say they believe the two woman know the whereabouts of Nichols and are asking the public for help in identifying the two.

Anyone with information about her whereabouts is asked to call sheriff’s detectives at (719) 520-7227. (105 East Vermijo Avenue  Colorado Springs, CO 80903) (719) 520-6000

National Center for Missing & Exploited Children’s First Missing Child Report

School photo of Cherrie Ann Mahan taken less than a year before her disappearance

Age-progression photo of what Cherrie Mahan might look like at 33 years of age. She would be 36 years old today.

Case Type: Non Family Abduction DOB: 08/14/76 Sex: Female Missing Date: 02/22/85 Race: Caucasian Age Now: 36  Height: 4’2″ (127 cm) Weight: 68 lbs Hair Color: Brunette Eye Color: Hazel City: Pittsburgh (31 kg) Missing State: PA Missing Country: United States Case Number: NCMC601805

Cherrie Mahan, born August 14, 1976, was an eight-year-old child from Butler County, Pennsylvania when she was abducted on Friday, February 22, 1985 around 4o’clock pm, just moments after stepping off the school bus, which was approximately 100 yards from her home along a road in rural Winfield Township. But the third-grader did not make it to the hilltop trailer she lived in with her parents.

The bus-stop was so close, the little girl’s parents could hear it pulling up.

“It’s like a black hole opened up and she fell in,” said Janice McKinney, Cherrie’s mother. She recalled that she and Cherrie’s stepfather, Leroy, could hear the bus pulling up that day, but Cherrie never arrived so he went to the stop to look for her. ”He came flying back up because she wasn’t there,” said Janice. The police were immediately contacted and they did a search in the area and asked local’s if anyone had seen the missing child. Witnesses reported to police that they had seen a suspicious looking van. A bright blue-green 1976 Dodge van with a mural of a mountain and skier painted on the side. Most of the leads given to police have been sightings of Mahan or the van, but  the van nor the missing child had ever surfaced.

Police were never able to find the vehicle which is strange considering the bright colors and mural design.

Cherrie’s case was very wide-spread, The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children opened in 1984 and Cherrie was featured as its first child listed on their mass-mailed “Have You Seen Me?” cards. Her case was on CNN in January 2011 and many people threw-out the Country still hear about the young girl’s mysterious disappearance.

Cherrie was a third grader and an only child, who just turned 36th birthday this past Summer, but in the minds of many, she will always remain a missing girl.

“People still talk about it,” said Trooper Frank Jendesky, the lead detective working on the case for the Pennsylvania State Police for the past 15 years.

 In January 2011, Pennsylvania police received a very promising tip/lead, but will not release details as they fear it will endanger the investigation.

Cherrie Mahan had her ears pierced at the time she went missing and was last seen wearing a gray coat, blue denim skirt, blue leg warmers and beige boots.
