Elizabeth Collins, Lyric Cook-Morrissey: Authorities believe missing Iowa girls are alive, report sa

Source: CBS

EVANSDALE, Iowa (AP) - Investigators say they have evidence that leads them to believe two Iowa cousins who vanished last week are still alive.

FBI spokeswoman Sandy Breault said Saturday that authorities strongly believe 10-year-old Lyric Cook-Morrissey and 8-year-old Elizabeth Collins have not been killed.

She refused to say what led authorities to that conclusion, but told reporters that investigators are expanding their search beyond Iowa.

The announcement came a day after authorities said they believe the girls were abducted.

2. Now, speculation will run rampant...

Were they abducted? Sold? Made arrangements with a predator on the internet to run away from home?

I hope they are found safe and sound and soon.

3. I'm wondering if it's an extortion attempt gone wrong - the parents of the one girl

apparently are tied up with drugs in some manner. Here's praying for the girls.

4. I do hold out hope for them.

I really wonder if this is tied into the one set of parent's criminal behavior. The mother is about to be sentenced for years in prison for serious crimes. Wonder if it's a domestic issue of some type because they knew their daughter would be taken away from them? or something related to those two parents' "business."

Horrible. Though no one knows the circumstances and it could be a random abduction, too often kids pay for the lifestyle the parents live, and the people they surround themselves with.

5. Ordinarily, I'd agree

However, I think there is a reason the FBI has leaked that they believe the girls are alive. I'd speculate they are looking to offer the abductors a way to let them go unharmed.

6. Prayers and more prayers.

It would be so good if these kids make it home, without the type of delay that Elizabeth Smart had to endure.

8. If they had found their sandals/shoes....they probably had gone swimming and ran into trouble

what was the temperature? what were their swimming habits in the area of their home? Would they have gone swimming with shorts/shirts if they didn't have their swimsuits?

If they have not found their shoes, it's kidnap.....they should search nearby buildings/homes of neighbors thoroughly......research again. It's probably someone nearby, a young man they know. Is any man 'missing' in the nearby area also?

They should review if anyone saw a truck/car parked near the Lake. What's the road like where the bikes were found.....do any trucks drive by.

If they 'ran away'....they'd still be with their bikes with backpacks of a few belongings


The mother's been away 4 years.....only with Lyric 2-3 weeks.....somethings wrong with that relationship.....how much did they fight?
Who had custody of them those 4 years?
