Two bodies were found on Wednesday in Iowa by hunters and police believe the bodies are that of missing Lyric Cook Morrissey, 10, and Elizabeth Collins, 8.
The girls, who are cousins, went on a bike ride in early July in a small rural town in northeast Iowa when they vanished into thin air. The girls were last seen early afternoon on July 13 before they set out on a bike trail near the girls’ home.
Lyric’s parents were investigated, having long criminal histories in the manufacturing of methamphetetamines. Lyric’s father, Daniel Morrissey, is currently being prosecuted for domestic assault and numerous drug charges according to the Huffington Post. Both parents have denied any involvement in the girls’ disappearance.
After a month-long search, police and FBI officials called on the public for help. They asked hunters to keep a look-out for bodies during the fall deer hunting season.
Investigators are remaining tight lipped about the exact location where the bodies were found, stating that preservation of the crime scene is top priority. Officials only said that the bodies were found in a heavily wooded area.
Further details are expected to be released on Thursday, when Evansdale, Iowa police and the FBI issue a press conference.
