Friends of missing cousins keep vigil

EVANSDALE (AP) — Friends and supporters of two Iowa girls who’ve been missing since July plan to distribute fliers on Halloween to maintain public awareness.

Residents are invited to print copies of the missing girls’ photos and the tip line number and hand them out to trick-or-treaters in Evansdale. Parents and other adults accompanying children may distribute the fliers door-to-door.

Lyric Cook and her cousin, Elizabeth Collins, disappeared on July 13. Their bikes were found near Meyers Lake in Evansdale. Lyric has turned 11 and Elizabeth has turned 9 since they went missing.

The FBI believes the girls were abducted.
