Search on for missing Iowa girls; 'It's like they vanished,' official says
By the CNN Wire Staff
updated 1:28 PM EDT, Mon July 16, 2012
(CNN) -- A search was in its fourth day Monday for two girls last seen riding their bicycles near a lake in Evansdale, Iowa, as authorities suspended a volunteer effort that drew hundreds over the weekend.

The girls -- 8-year-old Elizabeth Collins and 10-year-old Lyric Cook -- were last seen by their grandmother on Friday when the two, who are cousins, left her home to ride their bicycles, authorities said.

A massive volunteer search effort over the weekend failed to locate the girls.

"As we evaluate the accomplishments and results of the searches conducted this past weekend, we are not asking for any additional assistance from the general public," Evansdale Police Chief Kent Smock said in an e-mail early Monday sent to news outlets.

He said the volunteer effort is suspended for now.

"We really have nothing new that I can tell you, other than the fact the search is continuing," Rick Abben, chief deputy for the Black Hawk County Sheriff's Office, told reporters Monday. "... We're still looking for both of them. There's no new evidence or anything that's been found."

What would it take to abduct TWO girls of this age?  Any similar cases?

City officials say they believe it will take a couple days to drain lake. It appears there is only 1 drain into the river.

If they jumped in the water wouldn't there be signs of shoes etc left behind?
Even if someone tossed them in  the flip flops would have shone up somewhere.

'Somebody could have snatched' missing Iowa girls
updated 4:44 PM EDT, Tue July 17, 2012

 ::snipping2::
CNN correspondent Jim Spellman reported that FBI search dogs picked up the girls’ scent at the spot where the bikes were found and followed it along a path that leads into a wooded area.
 
Another possible witness reportedly emerged Tuesday who could help narrow the timeline of the disappearance. A man who lives about a half-mile from the lake told the Des Moines Register that he saw the girls pass his home on their bikes sometime between 12:00 and 3:00 p.m. on Friday, which would have been after Wylma Cook last saw them.

Witness said he may have seen missing Iowa girls after their disappearance
10:39 AM, Jul 17, 2012

 ::snipping2::
Carpenter, who lives north of the lake, said he saw the girls between 12 and 3 p.m. while he was outside watering his yard.

“I was out watering my yard between 12 and 3:00 and the girls rode their bikes right by our house,” Carpenter said. He and his wife, Marcella, were at Meyers Lake this morning to observe the activity.

“We see them practically all the time ride their bikes right past our house, but they come down and turn around in the street,” he said.

Black Hawk County Sheriff deputies came to the Carpenters’ house later Friday afternoon and notified them of the girls’ disappearance, Carpenter said.

“They were knocking on our door and going house to house checking for information and stuff about the girls and they came and talked to us about them and said they wanted to know if we knew anything about the girls,” Robert Carpenter said.

Marcella Carpenter was out delivering newspapers with her granddaughter when deputies visited the house.

She started to cry when she heard the news of their disappearance, she said.

“I broke down for the first time because I was so used to, especially Elizabeth, seeing her every night ride her bicycle and she always stopped and talked to people. She was a friendly little girl,” Marcella Carpenter said. “You know, it’s hard when you’ve got a grandchild the same age.”

Iowa Mom Believes that Missing Elizabeth Collins & Lyric “Misty” Cook-Morrissey May have been ‘Taken’ … Resident Says He Saw the Girls Ride by his House

http://scaredmonkeys.com/2012/07/18/iowa-mom-believes-that-missing-elizabeth-collins-lyric-misty-cook-morrissey-may-have-been-taken-resident-says-he-saw-the-girls-ride-by-his-house/

It is as though the disappeared into mid air in broad day light …

Iowa cousins, Elizabeth Collins and Lyric “Misty” Cook-Morrissey have been missing since Friday, July 13 when they were last seen riding their bicycles in the town of Evansdale, Iowa. Their bikes, a bag and cell phone were found near Meyers Lake; however, there has been no sign of the two girls. Thousands of volunteers have searched for the two missing cousins and search dogs have hit on a scent at the waters edge that is currently being drained. However, the mother of one of the missing girls thinks that Elizabeth Collins and Lyric Cook were abducted.
::snipping2::

The longer the story goes on, sadly the worse the outscome might be. The resident who saw the girls ride by their house made in interesting comment. He said he saw them do it all the time which gives rise to a pattern and someone who may have targeted them. If they were in the lake at some point they would have floated to the top, unless they were weighted down.

I hope for the best but this is not looking good.

How can a culprit "take" a child who is 145 lbs?   

Lyric appeared to be a strong little girl and a bit hefty, she could easily get out of a jam.
IMO.   UNLESS, she knew the culprit. IMO
