Lyric and Elizabeth were murdered near Evansdale

Tuesday marks four months since two missing cousins disappeared from eastern Iowa.

Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins were last seen July 13th in Evansdale.

Authorities believe the two were abducted near Meyers Lake, where the girls’ bikes were found.

For months, family and friends have worked tirelessly. Tuesday volunteers will fan the state and areas surrounding Iowa.

They are trying to renew interest in the case, pointing people to new missing posters and updated pictures.

Tuesday morning, Elizabeth’s father, Drew Collins left Evansdale and headed west to Sioux City.

Collins hopes the girls return for the holidays.

“We got Thanksgiving and Christmas coming up so I’m just speaking to whoever might know anything. Please bring them home,” says Collins.

There’s also a vigil planned Tuesday night at Countryside Vineyard Church in Evansdale.
