Mom: 'Our girls are dancing up with our savior'

EVANSDALE, Iowa (AP) - The mother of 1 of the missing Iowa cousins says the girls are "dancing up with our savior" after hunters found two bodies believed to be them.

Heather Collins wrote Thursday on Facebook that her family knew the outcome could be tragic when Elizabeth Collins and Lyric Cook went missing. She says the outcome is not "the one that we wanted," but that God would give the family strength and comfort.

Collins thanked the community for an outpouring of support. Her Facebook posts were the family's first comments since authorities announced the discovery of the bodies Wednesday.

Elizabeth was 8 and Lyric was 10 when they vanished while riding bikes in Evansdale in July. Hunters found the bodies in a wildlife area about 25 miles away.
