Riverside police meet to discuss active investigation into Cheryl Coker’s disappearance

RIVERSIDE — Riverside police detectives met Thursday morning in what officers described as a long meeting about the investigation into the disappearance of Cheryl Coker, who has been missing since October.

No one has been charged or named as a suspect in the disappearance of Coker, 46, who was last seen Oct. 2 dropping off her daughter at school. Her SUV was found Oct. 3 in a parking lot, locked, with her driver’s license, purse, credit cards and cellphone inside.

“We are still actively investigating her disappearance,” Riverside police Maj. Adam Colon said Thursday, adding there have not been any new developments in the case within the last few weeks.

In an exclusive interview with News Center 7’s James Brown last month, William Coker said he has theories about his wife’s disappearance, though he wouldn’t elaborate “because it would hurt my daughter.”

“I wish I knew,” Coker said, noting he and their daughter “love her and miss her very much and just hope she comes home.”

Cheryl Coker filed for divorce from William Coker, her husband of 19 years, on Sept. 21.
