FBI Child Abduction Team Investigates Disappearance of Iowa Cousins
An FBI child abduction team is on the scene in Iowa right now. Investigators are desperately trying to find two young cousins that went missing last week, 8-year-old Elizabeth Collins and 10-year-old Lyric Cook-Morrissey. The girls went out together, as usual, on Friday for a bike ride and they have not been seen since. Their bikes and one of their purses were found near a local lake. Their families believe the girls have been kidnapped and they are now begging for their safe return.
Earlier on America Live, Bill Daly said that their scents were picked up by dogs at the lakeside which means the girls were definitely there. “There was a scent there, which is leading the investigators to rule out the possibility that they drowned. What they are trying to do now is drain part of the lake as well as FBI divers are then going into areas where they can’t drain and look for the deeper pockets.”
In discussing the purse that was found, he said, “If you talk about children running away, I think they would’ve wanted something of their own rather than thinking they had to leave it behind."
Daly concluded, “People don’t just vanish … They’re sometimes taken by people and people with ill-intent.”
