EVANDSDALE, IA - The Black Hawk County sheriff's office says hunters found two bodies Wednesday afternoon near Meyers Lake. The bodies have been sent to the state crime lab for identification, but late Wednesday afternoon the police chief said he believes the bodies are those of Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins.
The young cousins went missing on Friday, July 13th. Their bikes were found near the lake.
The sheriff's office says parents of the girls have been notified; they request privacy right now. A sheriff's captain did not make any other comments, but said this was not the outcome they'd hoped for. He did say he'll update the media again tomorrow afternoon at 4 p.m.
