Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Rick Abben says hunters found two bodies in a wooded area at approximately 12:45 p.m. today.
No positive idendification has been made yet, but the bodies may be those of two girls who went missing from Evansdale on July 13th.
Eleven-year-old Lyric Cook-Morrissey and 9-year-old Elizabeth Collins were last seen riding their bikes near Meyers Lake. The lake was drained and extensive searches failed to turn up any sign of the young girls.
Abben says the two bodies have been sent to the State Medical Examiner’s office for identification. Abben is not releasing any other information on where the bodies were found at the request of the investigators at the scene.
