Over the next few weeks, she pulled off an elaborate ruse, telling officers she had been kidnapped by two Spanish women who beat and branded her.

But her story unraveled when officers found her ex-boyfriend’s DNA on her clothes in 2020 and discovered she had been tracked to him the whole time.

Supporting the kidnapping story, it turned out that her injuries were all self-inflicted.

Keith spent the time she was missing desperately searching for her, while also being treated as a suspect in her disappearance. After her trial and imprisonment, he was given full custody of the children.

Breaking his silence seven years later, he told Good Morning America that she has never apologized to him for what she put their family through: “She has no regrets that I have ever seen or seen.”

Even when police accused her of lying, Sherri insisted she was telling the truth. Keith said: “She made us believe her story was true. Every day she committed herself to the lie. ‘

He said he wants everyone to know “how convincing” Sherri was “all these years” and how he believed everything she said.

He said: ‘I think she wanted to plan a fake kidnapping, but in her version I had to find her.’

He said all he wants now is to be able to “move past it,” even though the events “will always be there.”
