EVANSDALE, Iowa – A month long fundraiser will help raise the reward money for two missing Black Hawk County cousins. Elizabeth Collins and Lyric Cook were last seen on July 13th in downtown Evansdale.
The girls' families with work in conjunction with the Cedar Valley Crime Stoppers for the fundraiser drive. All proceeds from the fundraiser will be used as a reward for information that leads to the missing girls. The money will be held for up to five years, if the fund is still needed. The drive will start on Monday November 19th and end on December 19th.
If the girls are found and a reward can't be given, the money will go to the Cedar Valley Crime Stoppers general fund. The girls' families said that if the funds can't be used to benefit the girls, then it's their wish that the money be used to help other victims and their families.
