Hunters look for clues about missing cousins

Friends of the two young Iowa girls who have been missing since July are asking hunters to watch for clues about the missing cousins.

FBI officials have said they believe Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins were abducted from Evanston this summer.

Chad Hartogh, who manages the Waterloo Hy-Vee store, says he hopes reminding hunters about the case will help bring the girls home.

Since they were reported missing, Lyric turned 11 and Elizabeth turned 9. Their bikes were found near Meyers Lake in Evansdale.

Chris Jones, with the state Department of Natural Resources, says he thinks this is a good idea because hunters will be in remote areas that don’t get much traffic the rest of the year. Jones was part of the initial search for the missing girls.
