20 Years Pass Since Thorntown Girl's Disappearance POSTED: 6:16 am EDT October 5, 2006 UPDATED: 7:05 am EDT October 5, 2006 THORNTOWN, Ind. -- The passing of 20 years since 6-year-old Shannon Sherrill vanished from her mother's yard have not erased the pain her family feels. Shannon was last seen Oct. 5, 1986, in a disappearance case that leaped back into the public's view in July 2003, when a Kansas woman faked being the girl before the Sherrill family's hopes were crushed within days by the hoax. Even two decades later, her family can't forget the 6-year-old they knew. "You still think she's small. Still think she's 6 instead of 26," Jody Ames, Shannon's aunt, told the Kokomo Tribune for a story Thursday. "Like if we saw her today, we'd still think we'd see her as she was." Shannon's father, Mike Sherrill, continues to look for answers and hope for a miracle. "Right now, they haven't proved she isn't here. I go on believing she's out there somewhere," he said.
