    Said he was inside the Casino, came out and Sunny was gone. Who doesn’t make a call to local police letting them know someone you traveled wth is now gone and can’t be found?!

    Someone who has something to hide, someone who is risking another arrest, someone who is an all-around ***.

    Do you know if he is seen on video inside the casino?

    And... you have done a fantastic job of keeping Sunnys name out there.

    Sunny Sramek Missing: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know | Heavy.com

    1. Sramek Was Traveling with a 42-Year-Old Man Named Cliff Coates
    [​IMG]
    On April 20, Sramek left Trenton, Nebraska, with a man identified by her family as Cliff Coates, 42. The two were traveling in a 2004 white Ford Explorer with Iowa license plate HGJ 341. Coates has been described by authorities as an acquaintance however, it is unknown how Coates and Sramek knew one another. According to Sramek’s mother, she was accompanying Coates on a trip to pick up his niece in Omaha, approximately 300 miles away.

    On the afternoon of April 20, Sramek contacted her mother to say the trip was going fine. Johnson told authorities there was no indication of a problem. “Sunny’s mom last spoke with Sunny earlier that day around 1 pm – Sunny said they were in Holdrege, Nebraska and everything was good,” a post from family member Reni Blome on the Find Sunny Sramek Facebook page explained.

    According to Johnson, Coates called to say that between 9 p.m. and midnight he’d stopped at the Prairie Flower Casino, a gaming facility owned by the Ponca Tribe and on tribal land in Carter Lake, Iowa, right outside of Omaha. Coates claimed to have left Sramek in the vehicle. Sramek would not have been allowed in the casino since the minimum age for casino gambling in Iowa is 21. When Coates returned to the car he stated that Sramek was missing.

    3. Coates Has Told Two Very Different Versions of What Happened

    Coates initially told Sramek’s mother that he came out of the Prairie Flower Casino, briefly searched for Sramek and then left after he couldn’t find her.

    But Blome stated that Coates wound up having an altogether different recollection of events. “He later changes his story and claimed he was at a gas station, ran in to pay for gas and when he came out she was gone,” Blome said in a May 17 Facebook post. Coates could not recall the gas station.

    According to Sramek’s mother Paula Johnson, the only consistent aspect of his story was that he left both the casino and the gas station without finding her daughter.

    4. Coates Has a Lengthy Criminal History

    Nebraska Department of Corrections

    A records check shows that a Floyd Clifford Coates, Jr. has a record of criminal activity in Kansas, Iowa and Nebraska.
    In Kansas, he had seven convictions for offenses including the sale and possession of drugs, theft and an attempt to flee or elude police. He also had 25 disciplinary reports for incidents involving battery, lying and having sexually explicit material.

    In Nebraska Coates was convicted of false imprisonment, methamphetamine distribution, possession of a deadly weapon, carrying a concealed weapon, assault by a confined person, theft by receiving stolen property and marijuana possession.

    On June 10, Blome posted the following on the Find Sunny Sramek Facebook page: “I have a little info to share from my aunt. ‘Update: Coates was arrested recently but was bonded soon thereafter. I’m hoping they can learn something/ anything from him, at least he was found.’

    I’m sharing this so ya’ll are aware, but as far as what happened prior to this, or what he was arrested for, that is not being shared by family. Family knows very little regarding his arrest, so please respect the fact that this is all we are sharing at this time. Hopefully the Authorities were able to acquire some answers regarding what happened to Sunny, or her whereabouts.”

    Law enforcement has not publicly named Coates as a suspect in Sramek’s disappearance.

    She does have many looks, which worries me since her look could have been changed and she’ll look nothing like the pics we’ve shared/used.

    The male subject may not be responsible for Sunny’s disappearance, but he was the last person she was wth. Its possible that Sunny was taken from the vehicle or parking lot. There are a lot of monsters out there, no telling what could have happened, but our only focus at this time is finding my cousin and bringing her home. The interview her mom and dad did was to get Sunnys face pushed out to be seen by even more people.

    I guess the obvious line of questions to ask are:

    Is it known where he was supposed to take his niece after picking her up?

    Did he, in fact, pick up his niece, i.e. did she end up where she was allegedly going?

    I suppose if there is any truth to the purpose of the trip being to pick up his niece that she would have to be at a location somewhere.

    So, were his brother/sister also there? Someone that can corroborate that he showed up there? Did they see Sunny?

    If someone can corroborate that, what time was that?

    Sunny was riding along for a trip to Omaha to pick up his niece, then return to Trenton that same day.

    We have not been given any information as to whether a niece existed or not, where Sunny was going exactly, other than Omaha, and we are not aware of anyone that would also be there.

    Sorry, hard to give info when we do not have answers ourselves. This investigation is very tight lipped which is frustrating for family, but we also trust they are doing everything possible to find Sunny.

    the guy's been charged in the past with false imprisonment, hello?

    I'll go out on a limb and say the purported trip to fetch a niece? Yeah, not buying it. If a niece existed (she may) and was supposed to be picked up, we'd have heard about it, or heard from her or about her in some way, some where, to give any veracity to his tale.

    And I am one who always plays devil's advocate and waits for evidence before making any assumptions or forming any theories. But this one... bad news written all over it. To think that someone else came along and kidnapped Sunny while CC was paying for gas? Chances are slim to none, sorry. I hope those who love and care about Sunny find the answers they need soon. Very sad...

    Sunny went missing 4 months ago today.

    I'm still praying for you to be found, sweet girl.

    Wherever you may be, you are not forgotten.
