Update On Missing Hansen Teen Scheri McClain
Hansen, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Hansen teen Scheri McClain has been missing for a month.
Last seen on November 5th, her family speaks out and pleads for her safe return.
On this cold December day, the McClain household is lively.
Home to seven adopted children and five pets, there is never a dull moment.
Yet, for the past month, Scheri McClain’s absence has created a void.
“Last night we were at Wal-Mart, and there was Scheri's picture on the board with all the other missing and exploited children and it's just painful. My oldest son was looking at it and was like, there's Scheri. It’s just difficult,” says Joy McClain, Scheri's mother.
The seventeen year old is allegedly with 22 year old boyfriend Trevor Bullock.
The day before Thanksgiving, Joy received false word that her daughter had been found, making the holiday especially difficult.
"They were all excited about it, and a few minutes later, we got a call that no it wasn't her, and I just been in such high hopes that maybe they were going to find her," Joy explains.
"It feels weird because we have less family... it just feels weird without her," adds Abby McClain, Scheri’s twelve year old sister.
Christmas is normally a very special time for the McClain family, but this year, things have been different.
"With Christmas coming, it’s hard. I love Christmas and all the rest of my kids need to have a happy Christmas, and it's kind of hard even to decorate. I've got stuff out but I haven't put it up. It's hard," Joy explains.
“I would be really happy if she comes... I would be really excited for her to come. We love you… we just want you home," Abby says.
Hoping for the greatest gift of all this holiday season… Having Scheri home.
