WELCH, OK -- It was nine years ago on Tuesday that two Welch teenagers disappeared without a trace.

Ashley Freeman and Lauria Bible disappeared the same night Ashley's parents were murdered and the family's home was set on fire.

Over the years, investigators have followed hundreds of leads, but there has never been any sign of the girls, who were 16 when they disappeared.  

Craig County Sheriff Jimmie Sooter says death row inmate Jeremy Jones confessed to him to killing the girls, but their bodies have never been found and Jones has never been prosecuted.
