Iowa officials finish park search in cousins case

EVANSDALE, Iowa (AP) -- Authorities are processing evidence collected from a wildlife area in northern Iowa where hunters discovered bodies believed to be two missing cousins.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports authorities left the Seven Bridges Wildlife Area in Bremer County on Friday. They had been searching the secluded area for any evidence connected to the case of Elizabeth Collins and Lyric Cook.

Elizabeth was 8 and Lyric was 10 when they vanished in July while their riding bikes in Evansdale. Hunters found the bodies last week in a wildlife area about 25 miles away from where they were last seen.

The newspaper also reports officials on Friday completed the autopsies of the remains, though results won't be finalized until further tests are done.
