Payne was last seen at a bar and grill north of Harriman after an argument with her boyfriend. They drove off together, but then the vehicle stopped and she got out.

"Since the investigation started, we have not had any leads as to her whereabouts," says Roane County Sheriff David Haggard. "We have checked in surrounding counties and hospitals, and there is no information as to where she might be. We need the public's help."

Payne was last seen wearing black jeans, a black tank top, a white tweed shirt and a black leather coat.

Payne disappeared after getting in a domestic dispute with her live-in boyfriend near the Big Orange Bar and Grill on Hwy 27/61.

According to the sheriff's report, Payne's live-in boyfriend Terry Collins told investigators that he and Payne got into a verbal fight at their home at 1142 Mountain View Road in Rockwood the night of Dec. 27.

Collins said in the sheriff's report that Payne had been drinking beer and she wanted to go out dancing but he did not want to.

According to the report, he took her to K & S Bar and later to Big Orange Bar. At Big Orange Bar, Collins told investigators, they argued and he slapped her. They left in his vehicle. Collins said that Payne tried to get the keys away from him and bit him on the hand.

Collins told investigators that Payne grabbed the steering wheel but he was able to pull the vehicle over. Payne got out of the truck, Collins said and started walking back to the bar which was 100 to 150 yards away. No one has seen her since.

Collins said he spent the night at his father's home and called Payne's family the next day.

Jackson said the family told her that Payne and Collins had a history of violence.

Jackson said on the night of Dec. 27, Collins was driving a truck from R & R Excavating in Harriman, where he worked.

On the Monday following Payne's disappearance, Collins was fired from R & R, Jackson said.
Jackson said Collins, who lives in Crossville, is wanted in Georgia but Georgia is not seeking to extradite him.

I just hear this one time. I hear she was bured at Pinicle Point where lowes is now on highway 70 south of Kingston. There was a great deal of backfilling ther when they were prepairing to build Lowes.

I think that in the news article (on Roane & Kingston Topix forum's) the Sheriffs office brought in a cadaver dog to the Lowe's building site and didn't get any hits. I have heard that she is probably buried in Morgan county somewhere. A former Sheriff's Deputy told me that years ago.

Just because the dogs didn't hit doesn't mean she wasn't put there later. That's where I've always believed she is at. I knew this girl as a child. This is just so wrong. If the family had money, you can bet that she would have been found.

I suppose she could have been placed there later, but her boyfriend was fired, or so i read, on the following Monday 2 days after she went "missing". Would he be able to get back there to hide her? I wondered if she is in Morgan County somewhere. I heard his Father lived/lives there. Do you know? Do you know if her family still wants to look for her?

A family never gives up looking for a child they lost. It would have probably been easy for him to have buried her somewhere in Morgan Co. also the dogs have been known to been wrong before. I will always think the ball was dropped on this case. It's really sad!!

I wonder if the dog/dogs were brought to Morgan county to check his family's property or the property in Rockwood where Cheryl was living at the time. Do you know if the family wants help looking for her?

They should be able to bring this case to a close. What was Cheryl's maiden name?

cheryl is my cousin and we will never stop looking for her! her mother has since lost jackie(her daughter) too. cheryl's disappearance and jackie's death has really taken a toll on her. no they never took the cadaver dogs to morgan county. we wanted them to at terry's dad's property but they never did. i dont for one minute think that she just got out of that truck. i believe he killed her! her son had lost his dad not long before that and then had to turn around and lose his mother! i think that WHEN they find the truth they should string him up for what he's done to her and if the truth doesn't come out before he dies i hope he burns in hell for what he's done!!!!!!

Cheryl was a very nice kid. I knew her growing up, but had lost all contact with her. One thing is for sure if the one that killed her doesn't pay here, they sure will when they leave this world. I am so thankful that the Cold case is looking at this case again. I pray that they find her killer!!
