RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The FBI is renewing attempts to find more information about the 1996 slayings of two hikers in Shenandoah National Park.

Special Agent in Charge Adam S. Lee of the Richmond Division of the FBI said in a statement that the FBI and the National Park Service continue to investigate the deaths of 24-year-old Julianne Williams and 26-year-old Laura Winans.

The two were last seen hiking with their dog on May 24, 1996. After the dog had been found wandering the park, park rangers searched for its owners. Authorities discovered the bodies of the two women on June 1, 1996.

The FBI has generated updated posters of the two in an effort to find more information about the slayings.

Officials are urging anyone with information to contact authorities.
