WELCH — The 1999 disappearance of two Craig County teenagers will be featured Monday on a cable television series.
The story of Lauria Bible and Ashley Freeman will be told on “Out of the Ashes,” which airs at 8 p.m. on the Investigation Discovery network.
The teens haven't been seen since authorities discovered the charred remains of Freeman's parents, Kathy and Danny Freeman, in a burned shell of a mobile home. Kathy Freeman's remains were found Dec. 30, 1999. Danny Freeman's remains were discovered a day later.
The missing Bible and Freeman would be 29 now.
Bible's parents, Jay and Lorene Bible, were interviewed for the television program, along with retired Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation agent Steve Nutter, Craig County Sheriff Jimmie Sooter and Freeman's relatives.
“We hope the program will generate new and promising leads,” OSBI spokeswoman Jessica Brown said.
The Freeman family had Ashley Freeman declared dead in October 2010 for legal reasons, but Bible's mother has said for years she is not giving up on finding her daughter.
Authorities said a small, four-door, dark-colored sedan was seen near the Freeman mobile home traveling east on a rural road toward Welch between 5:30 and 6 a.m. Dec. 30, 1999.
Investigators from the OSBI and the Craig County Sheriff's Department have followed up on thousands of leads and traveled across the county looking for information. A $50,000 reward has been offered.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the OSBI at (800) 522-8017.
