(EVANSDALE, Iowa) -- Police and hundreds of volunteers are dragging a lake and fanning out across the Evansdale, Iowa, area, searching for two Iowa girls who haven’t been seen for two days.
Elizabeth Collins, 8, and her cousin, Lyric Cook, 10, were last seen around midday Friday, riding their bicycles in downtown Evansdale, Iowa.
Police say they found the girls’ bicycles and a bag they were carrying on a trail near Meyers Lake. Crews used boats to search the lake and volunteers looked in the woods Saturday and Sunday, but haven’t found what happened to the girls.
No Amber alert was issued in the case, because it does not meet the requirements, officials said.
The girls’ grandmother, Wylma Cook, says she fears they were abducted.
“Whoever has them, just turn them in, let them loose anywhere so they can call me,” Cook said.
An anonymous person has offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to the girls’ whereabouts, police said.
