The Mysterious Disappearance of Sunny Sramek: A Search for Truth

Sunny Sramek, also known as Sunny J. Straub, is a missing woman from Omaha, Nebraska. She is a white female with brown hair, blue eyes, stands at 5'7" and weighs 183 pounds¹. She has several distinctive features including a tattoo of a feather with the word “FLY” on her left shoulder, and a tattoo of a tribal sun in red ink on her right ankle¹. She also has multiple scars on her body¹.

Sunny was born on February 23, 2001, to Paula Johnson and Jody Sramek in McCook, Nebraska¹. She was described as a smart and artistic young girl. Her grandmother was a retired art teacher and her grandfather was a retired science teacher¹. She grew up in Trenton, Nebraska, and started off going to high school there. She later had to transfer to a McCook High School due to being bullied¹. At the time of her disappearance, she was working on earning her GED¹.

On April 20, 2019, Sunny and a male acquaintance named Cliff Coates had planned on taking a day trip from Trenton, Nebraska, to Omaha, Nebraska, to pick up Cliff’s niece¹. The trip was about 300 miles away, and while Sunny didn’t own a cellphone at the time, she borrowed one from someone while in Holdrege, Nebraska, to call her mother at around 1 p.m¹. Sunny told her everything was going well and she would see her later that night when they got back to Trenton¹.

Several hours later, Cliff called Sunny’s mother between 9 p.m. and midnight to tell her they had stopped at the Prairie Flower Casino in Carter Lake, Iowa, and because she was only 18, Sunny had had to wait in the truck¹. He told her mother when he came back out about three hours later, Sunny was gone¹. He said he looked for her but couldn’t find her, so he left the area¹. Later on, he changed his story and said Sunny disappeared while they stopped at a gas station in Omaha¹. He said he ran in to pay for gas and when he came back out she was gone¹. Both times he told his story, he never mentioned calling the police or notifying any authority about her missing¹.

Sunny’s mother, Paula, called the police the next morning to tell them her daughter was missing¹. The FBI is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the recovery of Sunny Sramek, or for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for her disappearance².
