Since July, the entire Cedar Valley has been united by the hope that abducted cousins Elizabeth Collins and Lyric Cook-Morrissey will soon be safely home with their families in Evansdale.
Friday evening, the Waterloo Black Hawks are encouraging fans to wear
pink to Young Arena in support of that sentiment. Friends and family
of the girls will be at the Hawks’ game against the Indiana Ice
distributing awareness bracelets and pocket-sized informational cards
about the cousins. Collins’ youth hockey teammates will skate at
Collins, nine, and Cook-Morrissey, eleven, disappeared while riding
their bicycles on July 13th. The search for them has continued with the
efforts of local and state law enforcement, volunteers, and the FBI. A
$50,000 reward is currently being offered for their safe return and the
arrest and conviction of those responsible for their disappearance.
Evansdale police continue to look for tips and would like to speak with
anyone who may have seen the girls before they went missing. To provide
even the most minor details, call (319) 232-6682 or (800) 222-8477.
