Missing: Tacoma teen vanishes after telling mom she was with truck driver
December 1, 2017

Tami Kowalchuk was a troubled teen who thought she "knew the ropes." Despite her troubles, Tami was always honest with her mom.

"She communicated a lot with me," said Cindy Cherry.

On Dec. 26, 1999, 17-year-old Tami told her mom she was going out with friends and that she would be back later. She called her mom later in the evening, and said she ran into an acquaintance, a truck driver named Tony. She wanted to come home and get some clothes so she could go one of his long-haul trips.

Cindy knew her daughter's history and said no. Tami had a court ordered curfew of 10 pm. Her mom told her she needed to come home.

That was the last time Cindy heard her daughter's voice.

"Tami thought she knew the ropes," Cindy said. "And she didn't. She caught up with someone a little bit smarter than her."
