CHICAGO (AP) - It was 14 years ago that a 10-year-old Chicago girl and her 3-year-old sister disappeared after leaving behind a note saying they were headed to a nearby school and store.

On Monday, an aunt talked about Tionda and Diamond Bradley and why the family is still holding prayer vigils year after year on the anniversary. However, Shelia Bradley-Smith says she has given in to reality.

Bradley-Smith told WBBM-Radio (https://cbsloc.al/1IG6xHH ) she doesn’t believe the girls are alive and it’s a “matter of finding where they are.”

She says if adults haven’t come forward in 14 years, then contemporaries of the sisters might step up. Bradley-Smith says the family has memorials every year, hoping it will be the year some young adult remembers something.

Tionda Bradley would be 24 now; Diamond, 17.
