    Michael and Sheri were last seen with their mom, Freda Denman, and her husband, Henry Lee Harbison, in November 1974. They were not reported missing for 5 months, in March 1975. Harbison's clothing as well as the children's clothing was missing, but Freda's clothing was still at the home.

    Harbison, also known as Henry Johnson as well as other aliases, has an extensive criminal history. It is believed that he may have killed the children and Freda. Some believe the entire family was killed. Others believe Freda was killed and the children were sold. The circumstances are unclear and they are all still missing.

    Article from 2014


    Forty years ago this week, a mystery began that still haunts investigators

    Much of Shelley Denman’s life for the past 14 years fits inside her personal wheeled shopping cart.

    Instead of fruits or vegetables, it is stuffed with police reports, FBI blood analyses and framed photos from 40 years ago. There’s pounds of hurt but no feel-good ending.

    It’s plenty to push around.

    But Denman doesn’t mind the heavy lifting needed while searching for two long-lost children — Sheri Lynn and Michael Johnson, who were 4 years and 10 months old, respectively, when they and their mother disappeared from their Independence home 40 years ago this week.

    “There are many families out there facing the same frustrations that I am, not being able to experience closure on what happened to their loved ones,” said Denman, an Overland Park mortgage banker who grew interested in the case after learning of it from her husband, who was an uncle to the children.

    The children could be dead, Denman admits.

    “There’s also the reality that Sheri Lynn and Michael could still be out there and don’t know who their family really is,” she said.

    The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children recently released a 40-year anniversary flier seeking information about the case. It includes 1974 photographs of the children plus artists’ renderings of what they might look like today.

    It could bring new leads for Denman and her sister, Shannon Stevens, who once worked for a Dallas private investigation firm and who agreed to help her sister crack the case.

    That was 14 years ago.

    ‘‘We thought we would have this solved in no time,” Denman said.

    Today’s nationwide networks that help authorities find missing children didn’t exist when Sheri Lynn and Michael vanished on or around Nov. 10, 1974.

    I don't think the Children were Sold. He had to get rid of the "Whole Problem". And that way, He knew where they were. Sounds REALLY CREEPY. But in HIS MINDSET. HE HAD COMPLETE CONTROL THAT WAY. KILLING HIS OWN 2 CHILDREN.
