    Cheryl Anne Hanson
    Missing since May 31, 1974 from Aurora, Ontario, Canada.
    Classification: Endangered Missing

    Date Of Birth: July 25, 1966
    Age at Time of Disappearance: 7 years old

    Distinguishing Characteristics: White female. Blonde hair; blue eyes.
    Clothing: Cheryl was wearing dark brown check sweater and pants combination, a red nylon jacket / coat and white leather shoes. She also wore a gold necklace with a medallion on it. She was heading to her cousin's for a sleepover and was carrying her white pajamas with red flowers in a brown paper bag.

    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.

    I have always seen a lot of similarities between Cheryl and El Dorado Jane Doe.

    The freckles, blue eyes, blonde hair and she went by the name Cheryl.
