WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - The Black Hawk County Sheriff's Office says an anonymous donor is offering to add up to $100,000 to a reward for information leading to the return of 2 missing cousins and the arrest and conviction of those responsible for their disappearance.
In a statement released Friday night, Capt. Rick Abben expressed hope the donation would aid in the return of Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins.
The girls disappeared July 13. Their bikes were found near Meyers Lake in Evansdale. Lyric has turned 11 and Elizabeth has turned 9 since then.
The sheriff's office didn't offer details about the reward, but KWWL-TV reported an anonymous Cedar Valley resident notified the station about the fund, pledging to match donations up to $100,000.
That money would be in addition to $50,000 announced earlier.
