DELPHI, Ind. (AP) - The families of two northern Indiana teenage girls slain in February are seeking new ways of spreading the word about the unsolved crime.

Police have made no arrests since 14-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams were found slain Feb. 14, a day after they vanished while hiking near their hometown of Delphi.

More than seven months later, their relatives are exploring ways to help police find the killer.

German's grandparents created a Facebook page seeking novel ways of informing the public about the crime, including an FBI sketch and two grainy photos of a man considered the main suspect.

The Facebook suggestions include putting notices at park entrances and on truckers' vehicles.

Grman's grandfather, Mike Patty, said "you can't do the same thing and expect a different result."
