It's been nearly 25 years since three Suzie Streeter, Stacy McCall, and Sherrill Levitt disappeared from Springfield.

There are nearly a quarter of a century worth of questions, but yet still very few answers.

"Everybody was in a good mood. They'd just graduated. We were looking forward to the next morning when everybody was going to go to White Water," Stephanie Appleby, a friend of Stacy and Suzie's, said.

The plans that Suzie Streeter and Stacy McCall had that night never came through. Friends from years ago are still wondering why the young women never showed up for their morning plans after spending the night at Suzie's house along with her mom Sherrill Levitt, who has also not been seen since that day.

"It's surreal to me now because I look back and I think 'Oh, they'll be back,' you know, and here we are still waiting. It was just really strange. I think that we kind of realized after a week went by and another week went by that this was not going to turn out well," Appleby said.

Since June 7th, 1992, police have received countless tips but nothing that has lead to the whereabouts of the three women. While the question of what happened to them remains a mystery, to those who knew them, the case of the Springfield Three is a painful memory.

"They were wonderful people, fun people, just normal people," Appleby said. "We all carry them with us in our hearts and pray that, still pray, that they come home and that we get some sort of closure."

The case of the Three Missing Women is still listed on the Springfield Police Department website under "cold cases." Investigators are still asking anyone with any information about what happened that night 25 years ago to give them a call.
