The following day, Sunny’s mother was unable to get in contact with her daughter. So, she ultimately went to Hitchcock County Sheriff’s office to file a missing person report on April 21, 2019.
Authorities then launched an investigation, and it was discovered that Floyd had spoken to Sunny’s mother on April 20.
During that phone call, Floyd explained how he and Sunny had visited the Prairie Flower Casino located in Carter Lake, Iowa– staying there from 9:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m.
However, Sunny was forced to wait in Floyd’s truck outside the casino since the minimum casino gambling age in Iowa was 21.
So, Floyd alleged that after he got back to his car around midnight, Sunny just was not there.
Later, though, Floyd did change his story– claiming to have stopped at an unknown Omaha gas station to fuel his car.
Then, he allegedly went inside the station to pay for his gas and found Sunny had vanished upon returning to the vehicle.
Floyd does have a criminal record in Nebraska, Kansas, and Iowa. He was convicted of possession of a deadly weapon, the sale and possession of drugs, theft, battery, and other offenses.
Investigators suspect that foul play was involved in Sunny’s case. However, the circumstances surrounding her disappearance have remained unclear, and no person of interest or suspect has been publicly named.
So, Sunny’s family has continued searching for answers. Online, they created a Facebook group entitled “Find Sunny Sramek” to help raise awareness of her case.
At the time she vanished, Sunny was five foot seven, weighed 183 pounds, and had brown hair and blue eyes. She had a tattoo on her right shoulder of a feather and the word “FLY,” as well as nose and ear piercings.
