Missing Cousins Elizabeth & Lyric - Update

Cousins,  Elizabeth Collins, of Evansdale, Iowa and Lyric Cook-Morrissey of Waterloo, Iowa have been missing from Evansdale since July 13.   The girls disappeared while riding bikes in Evansdale, about 110 miles northeast of Des Moines, near a popular recreational lake in the middle of town.

Investigators had located the girls' bikes and one of their purses later that day on a nature trail that runs along Meyers Lake.  Despite many large-scale searches the girls' whereabouts remained a mystery.

Sadly we learn today that hunters found two bodies were found in an undisclosed wooded area about 12:45 p.m. Wednesday.  The bodies are believed to be that of the missing cousins. 

The bodies have been taken to the state medical examiner's office for an autopsy and to get a positive identification.

This is definitely not the outcome that anyone was hoping for.  I feel so badly for these two families.
