Law enforcement and hundreds of volunteers are searching Evansdale, Iowa for two girls that haven’t been seen since Friday.
Elizabeth Collins, 8, and her cousin, Lyric Cook, 10, were last seen around midday Friday, riding their bicycles in downtown Evansdale, Iowa. Police found the girl’s bikes and a bag they were carrying near Meyers Lake. Boats were used to search the lake, and volunteers searched the woods Saturday. Police are dragging the lake.
No Amber alert was issued in the case, because it does not meet the requirements, according to Captain Rick Abben, a chief deputy with the Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Office.
An anonymous person has offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to the girls’ whereabouts, police said. If you have information, you are asked to call the Evansdale Police Department at (319) 232-6682.
