Update: 1975 Kidnapping of Lyon Sisters Investigation

For Immediate Release: Tuesday, September 16, 2014

The Montgomery County Police Department continues to investigate the 1975 disappearance of sisters, Katherine (age 10) and Sheila (age 12) Lyon.

In February of 2014, the Department and the FBI named Lloyd Lee Welch, also known as Michael Welch, as a person of interest in this case. Through investigation, detectives determined that Welch had a possible connection to Bedford County, Virginia.

Since last week, Montgomery County detectives have been in the area of Bedford County, working with the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office and the Virginia State Police. Detectives are looking for evidence and gathering information that may indicate that Welch had a connection to the girls’ disappearance.

The Police Department will continue to follow-up on leads and new information until this case is solved.
