(Welch-AP) -- The classmates of Lauria Bible and Ashley Freeman will honor the two missing girls at their junior proms this year.

Bible and Freeman have been missing since late December 1999. The girls disappeared after a fire destroyed the mobile home of Freeman's parents.

Authorities believe the girls were abducted by the same people thought to have killed Danny and Kathy Freeman before setting the fire.

Bible's classmates at Bluejacket plan to set up a table Friday at the prom with pictures of her, including one in a prom dress. They say Bible will be able to attend in spirit.

Freeman's prom is scheduled next month at Welch High School.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation continues to pursue leads in the case.
