DELPHI, Ind. (WTHR) - Three years have passed, but no one here has forgotten.

On a difficult anniversary for Delphi, people chose to honor Abby and Libby with good.

They held a food drive and vigil at Delphi United Methodist Church.

They prayed that the person who took two young lives is finally revealed.

The girls went missing during a hike on the Monon High Trail on February 13, 2017.

Their bodies were found a day later.

Micheal and Monica Flores say it was one of those "where were you" moments.

"It still feels like it just happened, I mean it really does," Monica said.

It something the town may never fully recover from.

"The anniversary, it comes. It hits you out loud, but as far as the day-to-day, I think everybody in this community thinks about it everyday," said Micheal.

They keep ribbons on their porch, blue for Libby, purple for Abby.

There's also an orange light - that never goes off - in support of their families, knowing how hard it must be just to be waiting.

"I have hope that it is going to come to a conclusion and I am glad they are still vigilant and the police are still doing what they are doing and keeping their hand close," said Micheal.

Ultimately, people are hoping someone comes forward who can identify the suspect, and hoping that in another year from now, we're not still here waiting for answers.
