EVANSDALE, Iowa (AP) - Investigators are still getting calls regarding two Iowa cousins whose bodies were found a year ago about 25 miles from where they were last seen.

Gerald Meyers of the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation told The Des Moines Register that investigators have had more than 1,100 leads.

The bodies of Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins were found Dec. 5, 2012, at Seven Bridges Wildlife Area in Bremer County. Elizabeth was 8 and Lyric was 10 when they vanished while bike riding in Evansdale.

Officials continue to search for any link to Michael Klunder, who police say abducted two girls from Dayton in May and killed one before killing himself.

Meyers says no evidence linking Klunder to the Evansdale case has been found, but investigators haven't ruled him out either.
