Murder Victim. Cheryl was last seen on May 23, 1983 in the central district in Seattle. The day of (some reports say the day before) her nineteenth birthday. Her mother Ruth a nurse, has lived through this nightmare twice. Cheryl's sister Deborah disappeared under eerily similar circumstances in 1990. Cheryl's skeletal remains were found just north of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Cheryl was the youngest of four children, she had a sister Deborah and two brothers. In 2003 Gary Leon Ridgway, known as "The Green River Killer" who was responsible for the murders of 49 women in Seattle, Washington, between 1982 and 1984 pleaded guilty to Cheryl's murder and others and was sentenced to life without parole.
