KSDK-It's been nearly 7 years since Heather Kullorn disappeared while babysitting in Richmond Heights. Thursday, loved ones gathered to remember her birthday.
The missing girl would have turned 19 Thursday. Friends and family held balloons and flowers as they sang “Happy Birthday” to Heather at her grandmother's gravesite in South Saint Louis County. "I just wish whoever knows something would bring her back to me,” said Christine Kullorn, Heather's mother. Richmond Heights police say the case remains open.
Chris still holds out hope she will get a break in the case. "I feel like things are going to happen eventually. They'll feel guilty. I just would like to have her home so I can bury her,” she says.
Heather is also on the minds of family members of Bianca Piper. The Foley, Missouri teenager has been missing a year Friday. Her grandfather hopes
someone comes forward for Bianca's family, the Kullorns and the families of other missing children. "Hopefully, someone who knows something, they'd think about our family or Heather’s or Shawn’s. I could go on and on,” explained Bianca's grandfather, Guy Young. Bianca's family will hold a prayer vigil Friday in the same area where the young girl was last seen.
