BEDFORD, New York (WABC) -- On Feb. 5, 1977, Leslie Guthrie and her two small children vanished from their home in Westchester County and were never seen or heard from again.

Now, police are launching a fresh effort to find the Katonah family, releasing age-progressed photos in the hopes of a break in the disturbing 45-year-old cold case

When they disappeared, the mother, Leslie, was 29, her daughter, Julie, was 6, and son, Timothy, was just 3. The age-progressed images show what Leslie could like at 65, and what her children might appear like at 51 and 48, respectively.

They were last seen driving a green 1974 Ford Maverick with a white roof and the New York State license plate 636-WNA.
