Progress continues on memorial for 2 Iowa cousins

EVANSDALE, Iowa (WXOW) - Work continues at a memorial for two Iowa cousins who disappeared last summer.

Volunteers behind the memorial for Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins say work has begun on an island at Meyers Lake in Evansdale. Workers have removed trucks, stumps and roots. They also have filled ruts and ravines and removed silt from the lake.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports volunteers on Monday updated the Evansdale Park & Recreation board about the activities. Work will soon begin on preventing erosion along the base of the island.

Cook and Collins were last seen in July riding their bikes by the lake. Their bodies were found in December in a wooded area.

Construction will incorporate the island into a nearby park by adding a gazebo and building a road to it.
