EVANSDALE (AP) — A park and trail in northeast Iowa that’s close to where two cousins were last seen alive is being renamed in their memory.

The park at Meyers Lake in Evansdale will now be called Angels’ Park in memory of Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins. The trail around the park will be called Trail of Angels.

The Parks & Recreation Board in Evansdale approved the name change Monday night. An Evansdale Chamber of Commerce spokeswoman says other memorials are being worked on for the girls.

The cousins were last seen in July riding their bikes by the lake. Their bodies were found in December.
