WARREN, Mass. (WGGB) — It’s been 12 years since Molly Bish disappeared from Comins Pond.
Wednesday night, a vigil to remember the late 16-year-old was held on the town common.
“There is 4320 days that we haven’t seen her and how much our lives have changed because of this and how much Molly has been a part of our life and she has made me who I am,” said Magi Bish, Molly’s mother.
During the vigil family and friends shared memories of Molly.
“I remember everything about her, her hair, her smell, I miss it all,” said Heather Bish, Molly’s sister.
Molly was working as a lifeguard when she disappeared on June 27, 2000. He body was discovered three years later in nearby Palmer.
The case is still open and just this year the FBI joined the investigation and the Worcester County DA’s Office announced new DNA is being tested.
“We know every year, every six months you know science gets better and we didn’t have a lot left from Molly, but perhaps we’ll get some clues, that really good news,” said Magi Bish.
The family says it’s the support from friends and the community that keeps them looking ahead to the day the case is closed.
“Molly will not be forgotten. Most importantly her case will be solved and some day I am hoping I’ll be at a beach and I will have this behind me and I’ll just have to miss Mol, but it will be over,” said Magi Bish.
Worcester District Attorney Joseph Early spoke during the vigil and said leads in the case are still coming in each week.
He says anyone with information should contact their local police department.
