EVANSDALE ó The mother of a missing Eastern Iowa girl says she believes the 10-year-old and her 8-year-old cousin were abducted.

Misty Cook Morrissey told the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier Saturday that itís out of character for her daughter, Lyric Cook, to wander too far from home. The girl often stays at the home of her younger cousin, Elizabeth Collins, in Evansdale while her mother works.

The girls were last seen shortly after noon on Friday in downtown Evansdale. Their bikes were located along a trail on the southeast corner of Meyers Lake. Investigators say they have found no other traces of the girls.

Evansdale police and fire chief Kent Smock says authorities still view it as a missing-person case, but he isnít ruling out the possibility that the girls were abducted.
