PICHER, Okla. — Investigators, experts and agencies across the state will be conducting new searches for the two missing Welch girls.

Lauria Bible and Ashley Freeman disappeared 20-years ago and are believed to have been murdered.

This is video from previous searches.

Over the next two days, a team from the US Department of Interior will join the search, deploying cameras into several areas of interest, including a mine shaft.

Meanwhile, the last living suspect accused of killing the girls, Ronnie Busick, will be back in court on February seventh.

That's when his preliminary hearing date will be set.
