    By: Jackie DelPilar


    The family of Lauria Bible is asking for the public’s help raising funds to go to a true crime convention in New York next week.

    CNN is working on a documentary about the disappearance of the two Welch girls, Lauria Bible and Ashley Freeman. Part of the documentary will be shown for the first time at the convention.

    Lorene Bible said she’s been advocating for the girls since they first disappeared 19 years ago. She doesn’t want them to be forgotten. The documentary and the convention will help her keep their story and search alive beyond Oklahoma.

    The Bible family has raised thousands of dollars in reward money for information leading to the girls, and that money has not been touched.

    The girls’ families continue to plead for information on where the girls may be. Lorene Bible is pleading with the only living suspect, Ronnie Busick, to put her on his visitor list in jail to allow her to come in and speak with him. She remains hopeful that he will share information leading to the girls' remains.
