Home » Cheree Atkins Texted Her Family In 2019 & Hasn’t Been Seen Since
The loved ones of 46-year-old Cheree Atkins have been concerned for her well-being since June 20, 2019. Cheree was reportedly diagnosed with mental illness and was being treated medically, but she wasn’t taking her medications at the time of her disappearance. The last time she was seen, it was by her social worker in St. Louis, Missouri, and four days later, Cheree is said to have texted a relative with unsettling news.
According to reports, Cheree Atkins told her loved ones that she planned to somehow harm herself, however, the details regarding what was specified in the text haven’t been shared with the public. Worried, Cheree’s family contacted the authorities with the information they had, and although police did attempt to locate her, Cheree Atkins was never seen again.
Some suspect that she followed through with whatever she’d threatened to do to herself. However, a threat of self-harm does not mean that Cheree isn’t in need of help, that other contributing factors have caused her disappearance, or she’s still alive and walked away from her life. She was reportedly known to travel by bus or the Metrolink. Information regarding this case is scarce.
At the time of her disappearance, Cheree Atkins stood 5 feet tall and weighed 200 to 225 pounds. She has black/dark brown hair (dyed a reddish color in June 2019) and brown eyes. Both of her ears are pierced and she has a mole on her cheek. She was last seen wearing a black top, a black skirt, and a black and white striped straw hat described as “floppy.” She would be 48-years-old at the time of this publication.
Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the St. Louis County Police Department at (636) 529-8210 or their local authorities. Her agency case number is 19-29523.
