Home » Sherise Magee, 1: Missing From Vegas Since 1975
Once in a blue moon, the world is confronted by a missing child news story that steals headlines. It doesn’t happen as often as many would like, but ever so often, an adult comes forward believing that they may be a missing child who vanished decades prior. Although these declarations are often just another dead end, sometimes DNA tests prove that these adults are, indeed, the children that families and investigators have been searching for. There is that sense of hope in the case of Sherise Magee.
There is very little known about this case from 1975. Agencies state that one-year-old Sherise was last seen at her home near Martin Luther King and Lake Mead boulevards in Las Vegas, Nevada around 11:00 p.m. before she was taken by a family member. Who that relative may have been has not been shared in reports, but Sherise Magee has never been seen or heard from again.
The development of this investigation is unclear, as there does not seem to be any searchable news reports from the 1970s about the tot. Circumstances regarding Sherise’s last days with her family are also unknown.
At the time of her disappearance, Sherise Magee stood 3 feet tall and weighed 27 pounds. She had black/dark brown hair and brown eyes. Both of her ears were pierced and she was last seen wearing a blue shirt, blue shorts, white socks with red stripes across the top, and brown loafers. Her middle name is “Lachelle.” Sherise would be 48-years-old at the time of this publication.
Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department at (702) 828-3111 or their local authorities. The agency case number is 091219-2155.
