Elizabeth Collins and Lyric Cook have been missing since Friday, July 13, 2012.
The latest news is that the two cousins, Elizabeth Collins and Lyric Cook, were spotted on a surveillance video on the day the girls went missing. The video camera captured the two girls on tape at 12:11 pm as they rode by the camera less than a block away from their home and riding away from Meyers Lake. Authorities say that the video matches the police time line and needs to be further analyzed.
Although the girls only look like a blur as they cross the frame on their bicycles in the video, and the footage of the two girls lasts only seconds, investigators say they now are analyzing it for any clues that could lead to information about the girls whose bicycles were later recovered on a trail by nearby Meyers Lake in Evansdale, Iowa.
“It looked kind of grainy, I mean just zoom they were by the thing and so it’s very hard to really make much out of the thing,” Black Hawk County Chief Deputy Rick Abben said. “The girls were less than a block from the house when this camera captured them riding by, important to note they were riding away from Meyers Lake.”
The video also matches the police timeline. Investigators say the girls left the home to ride their bikes shortly after noon July 13. The camera’s clock shows it was 12:11 p.m. when they rode by.
