EVANSDALE, Iowa (CBS/KGAN) -- An FBI dive team from Los Angeles may join other agents and Iowa officers investigating the disappearance of two young cousins.
Eight-year-old Elizabeth Collins and 10-year-old Lyric Cook-Morrissey were last seen Friday at their grandmother's house in Evansdale, a suburb of Waterloo in northeast Iowa. Their bicycles and Elizabeth's purse were found later that day at nearby Meyers Lake, and FBI dogs detected the girls' scent in the area.
FBI spokeswoman Sandy Breault said Wednesday that if the divers are deployed, they would search the deeper holes of water in the lake. Officials have been draining it since Monday.
Meanwhile, the mother of Lyric Cook-Morressey spoke with KGAN early this morning about the continuing search, and her concerns.
