SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Lelia Sellars still looks at her favorite picture of her niece, Heather Sellars. And as she talked about how beautiful the picture looked Tuesday night, sadness overcame her smile.

"We just want some closure, we want to know what happened," Lelia Sellars said.

She said when Heather Sellars broke-off her engagement to Jonathan Vick back in 2002, she disappeared two weeks later.

"Jonathan Vick - that's the last person she was seen with," she said.

Family members said witnesses told them Vick and Heather Sellars were last seen at Cocktails and Dreams, a bar off Highway 221 in Spartanburg County. And family members said they knew something was wrong when Heather didn't pick up her last check at the Waffle House on Highway 9.

"If we only knew where she was or what had happened to her," Lelia Sellars said with tears in her eyes.

And now that Jonathan Vick is serving a life sentence for killing Dana Satterfield, the owner of a Roebuck beauty shop, the Sellars family fears they will never know what happened to Heather.

"He killed one of our citizens here and her name was Dana Satterfield," Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright said.

Wright doesn't call Vick a suspect, but he said they're looking into the case.

"Until I get solid evidence or find some piece of evidence that we need, I'm not going to make a charge on him," Wright said.

Deputies said they always hope for leads in the case.

"I say that people mature and they go, 'I really need to tell somebody about this bad thing I witnessed and I'm not doing the right thing if I don't,'" Wright said.

And that's what the Sellars family wants, too.

"We miss her so much," Lelia Sellars said.

The cases of Satterfield and Heather Sellars will be featured this Sunday on the show, On the Case with Paula Zahn, which airs on the Investigation Discovery Network.
