7th Anniversary Vigil for Missing Bradley Sisters

SHARE 7th Anniversary Vigil for Missing Bradley Sisters

On July 6, 2001, Diamond and Tionda Bradley—aged ten and three—went missing from their South Side neighborhood. Tomorrow the family is holding a prayer vigil to mark the 7th anniversary of their disappearance.

The search for the Bradley sisters continues to be exhaustive, and involves both local and international authorities. But leads have been slim. The girl’s great aunt, Sheila Bradley Smith, says the last disappointment came a few weeks ago, when the FBI said a possible photo of Tionda probably isn’t her.

SMITH: But it’s still kinda hard to accept that because she just looks incredibly too much like her. But I’m sure everybody has heard the old saying that everybody has a twin, so I’m hoping that that’s like some type of prophecy saying that Tionda is on the way home.

The vigil will start at 2 p.m. tomorrow in Ellis Park, at 35th and Cottage Grove.
