Another Cherrie Ann Mahan age progression

You will notice that the post prior to this one was about a girl named Tanya Kach who was miraculously found alive near Pittsburgh, PA, after being missing for ten years. Cherrie is from the same area and has been missing longer, but Tanya's story reminds me that there is hope for long term missing people. Cherrie is already considered abducted, whereas we did not know Tanya was being held against her will until she was found yesterday. This week I saw on the Crimeshots forum that there is a different age progression of what Cherrie might look like. (This one is of her at 22, whereas the other was at 27, but to me this one looks more realistic. Still, I will post both progressions here, because, as we learned from Tanya, it is not easy to predict what someone will look like after all these years.)
Here is the info from Cherrie's poster at (Click here to print your own to put up.)
