Heather Collins and Misty Cook-Morrissey, the mothers of the missing Iowa cousins, were in attendance at a vigil held in honor of the girls at Meyers Lake.
Lyric Cook-Morrissey, 10, and Elizabeth Collins, 9, disappeared on July 13th while riding their bikes in Evansdale, Iowa. Their bikes were found near the lake later that same day, but no girls.
Both the mothers are optimistic about their daughters' safe return. Misty, Lyric's mother, said, "It's just very sad. Every day is sad, crying out to God, please, please let this be the day they come home or that we find something."
Elizabeth's mother, Heather is turning to God, saying, "I have asked the Lord not to put any negative thoughts in my head. The only thoughts are positive thoughts - the girls will return home. Our time is not necessarily God's time and we need to be patient."
Over 150 people came out to the vigil, walking around the lake and talking with the family, among the pink ribbons and missing persons posters. There is also a booth at the state fair dedicated to the girls, complete with an anonymous tip box. Maybe someone will leave the needed tip that will crack the case. There have been several cases where wives and friends have known for years about a child that had been kidnapped, like Nancy Garrido, with Jaycee Dugard. There has to be someone who knows something. Please come forward.
