Cherrie Mahan

Two family grapple with individuals who claim to be long-lost missing children.

A woman comes forward claiming to be Cherrie Ann Mahan. The little girl was just an 8-year-old when she went missing, after getting off her school bus, just feet away from her home.  A blue or green van is the only clue.

Six-year-old Timmothy James Pitzen was dropped off at school by his father James. Not long after, he was picked up after by his mother, Amy Fry-Pitzen, who took the boy on a three-day trip to amusement parks in their region.  Fry-Pitzen’s body was found in a motel room. The mom had committed suicide, leaving a note says Timmothy was safe, but his father would never see him again.

Who would claim to be a missing child?
