ABC15 needs your to help to take action and assist police in getting dangerous criminals off the streets using our new 'Tip Tuesday' series.

Phoenix police need help to solve a cold case involving a 28-year-old woman missing for more than two decades.

Sherry Daugherty was last seen at her home near Tatum and Shea boulevards on August 29, 1991.

Her live-in boyfriend told police, she left the home around 8 p.m. to go shopping at Target, but never returned. However, police found her purse and identification at home.

Daugherty's car, a green El Camino, was found in the Target store parking lot across the street from Paradise Valley Mall. Investigators found it interesting that the driver's seat was pushed way back, even though Daugherty is short in stature.

Police suspect that she did not leave willingly and believe she is deceased.

Rumors circulating around the original investigation 24 years ago pointed to the boyfriend, who allegedly said her body was disposed of in a such a way that it would never be found. 

So far, police do not have enough evidence to move forward and are asking for your help.

Silent Witness is looking for any information you may have regarding the disappearance of Sherry.
