Vital Statistics


Circumstances of Disappearance
Cheryl disappeared from Ontario, Canada in 1974. She left her residence around 18:30 to walk down Bloomington Side Road to her cousin's home 10 minutes away. She never arrived.

Thousands of volunteers, including police, CB radio operators, aircraft and Queen's York militia units, scoured the region for weeks in an unprecedented search of York Region. Cheryl Anne was never found.
Convicted murderer Donald Everingham confessed to several murders, including that of Cheryl Hanson. He described Cheryl's clothes and drew a crude map of where he'd thrown her body. But the newspapers had been full of Cheryl's description and extensive police searches in the area he indicated never uncovered her body. Donald Everingham's confession was eventually refuted.
