    TN - Dr. Cherryl Pearson, 37, Memphis, 5 Jan 2002

    Next month it will be four years since Dr. Cherryl Pearson disappeared without a trace. Thursday night the Bartlett woman's picture will appear at the end of the popular CBS show "Without a Trace" and on Thursday her story will be featured on "The CBS Morning show."

    Pearson was last seen on January 4th, 2002 at a Grizzlie's game at the Pyramid. Her car was found a few days later at an apartment complex near her Bartlett home. Neighbors still wonder what could have happened to her.

    Police won't talk about specifics in the case or even say if they believe foul play was involved. Investigators say it's been at least a year since they've received a new tip in the case.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Big Money Reward in Missing Doctor Mystery

    Posted: 3/7/2006

    Four years ago Dr. Cherryl Pearson disappeared after a Memphis Grizzlies game. Since then police have uncovered few clues and no suspects. Her parents say they began to lose hope that they would ever know what happened ... until today. Thanks to a request from the Shelby County District Attorney's Office, the State of Tennessee is chipping in $25,000 dollars to help in the search for Pearson.

    The pediatrician's parents hope a larger reward will bring in new tips that could turn up a new lead.

    This case was just on The Abrams' Report. Investigators seem to be leaning towards the brother-in-law as a POI, although they won't say as much. The BIL has a criminal record for robbery, (I think they may have said bank robbery but not positive on that).

    Apparently, Cherryl was very close to her sister's children (the sister that was married to the robber); was even supposed to babysit them the day after she disappeared. She had $150,000 life insurance policy on which her sister was the beneficiary. The money has not yet been paid out since it hasn't been proven that Cherryl's dead. I don't know if The Abrams' Report provides transcripts on their website but if and when I can get a transcript, I'll post it here.

    Her case was also recently featured on the Dateline special. She had 2 friends over her house when she got back from the basketball game. They left and said she was going to bed. Her phone records showed a call from a payphone around 2:30 am. It was a short call. LE thinks someone called to see if she was home or told her to meet him/her. Her car was found at some point but not much evidence in it.

    Oh, that's right. I would think that she probably left to meet whomever it was as I don't recall getting the impression that there was much evidence, if any, at her home. Actually, I guess a better way of putting it would be that I would guess that any crime that might have happened that night didn't happen in her home.

    From that article:

    If you have any information that could help investigators you're asked to call Bartlett Crime Stoppers at 382-MONY or 382-6669.

    Here's the transcript from that show. I'm including the portion that seems to indicate that her brother-in-law is a POI:

    Missing: Cherryl Pearson - Dateline NBC - MSNBC.com

    ...
    Det. Lee: The car was just too clean. It was cleaner than normal, detailed even.

    Stafford: As though somebody had wiped away prints?

    Det. Lee: Yes, sir—it’d been totally detailed. We didn’t even find her prints in there.
    A quick call in the middle of the night, her cell phone and pager left behind, and no signs of a struggle: Those clues, at least, suggested to investigators Cherryl probably knew her assailant.

    Stafford: Is there anyone within her circle of friends or relatives who has a criminal history?

    Johnson: Yes, sir. She has a brother-in-law that has a criminal history of bank robbery.

    Stafford: Does he have an alibi for January 4, 2002?

    Johnson: He’s been interviewed and we’ve taken statements from him.

    Stafford: Are you satisfied with the alibi for that night?

    Det. Lee: No. There are certain inconsistencies that are not explainable.
    Police also say Cherryl had a life insurance policy worth $150,000 - so far not paid out since there is no proof Cherryl is dead.

    Stafford: Who is the beneficiary?

    Johnson: Cherryl’s sister.

    Stafford: Who’s married to the brother-in-law who served time for robbery.

    Johnson: Yes, sir...

    Dr. Cherryl Pearson's "cold case" isn't cold

    Imagine your daughter, sister or wife vanishing into thin air. The family of Dr. Cherryl Pearson has lived through that horror for almost five years. The 37-year old pediatrician from Bartlett hasn't been heard from since 2002 when she left a Memphis Grizzlies game. A lot of time has lapsed, but police say it's far from a cold case. In fact, News Channel 3 has learned police are pursuing a lead right now and they are determined to find the woman who seems to have disappeared "without a trace."

    What happened that night:

    Pearson attended a Grizzlies game at the Memphis Pyramid the night of January 4, 2002. After she returned home, two female friends dropped by and left around midnight. Police say a phone call came later that night.

    She had to know the person from the payphone call. Who leaves home at almost 2am unless it's an emergency for someone close to them? Does anyone know if her sister had kids? Being a Pediatrician, I'm thinking maybe she got a call from BIL that one was sick or injured. Clearly this wasn't a robbery. I think right now best suspects in her disappearance are sister and BIL.

    Here's hoping something comes of this new lead. This case has been going on for so long. It's time the family can have some closure.

    I agree , the sister and brother in law seem like they may be the best suspects...and the bil story has some inconsistencies also, so thats not good.
