Four months after two girls from eastern Iowa disappeared, friends and family are renewing their search for the girls.

Cousins Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins disappeared while riding their bikes in Evansdale on July 13.

Investigators say they think the girls were kidnapped, although they say they have not uncovered any evidence to suggest where they are.

Tuesday night, the community held a vigil making sure everyone keeps the search for Lyric and Elizabeth a high priority.

People were encouraged to take new posters and replace the old posters.

Earlier in the day, volunteers put up posters at truck stops and store fronts in Des Moines, Waterloo, Davenport, Sioux City, and even Omaha.

Elizabeth Collins’ mom hopes the pink posters will catch people’s attention.  

“Had someone actually think that they were found, and I’m like no, that’s not in our case. So just to let people still be aware that the girls are still missing and hopefully someone will see it and maybe know something,” says Heather Collins.

Investigators and the girls’ parents believe Lyric and Elizabeth are still alive.
