Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Cheryl Payne got into a fight with her boyfriend after they left a Harriman bar. No one has seen her since. The boyfriend's claimed that he dropped off Cheryl Payne on the side of the road close to the Big Orange Bar. Investigators and Payne's family believe she was murdered. Payne and her boyfriend had a documented history of domestic violence. Detectives haven't been able to find Payne's body or collect enough evidence to make any arrests. In December 2003, the family reported Payne missing. It was unusual for Cheryl not to call her son or father throughout the day.
