EVANSDALE, Iowa – It’s been over two years since the bodies of two Evansdale cousins were found in Bremer County. This week, detectives working on the case will visit the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia.

Representatives from the Evansdale Police Department and Iowa DCI have made the trip.

A panel of experienced investigators and psychologists including experts from the U.S. Marshal’s Office and the FBI will look into the kidnapping and murder of Lyric Cook, 10, and Elizabeth Collins, 8, Thursday and Friday.

The cousins disappeared in July of 2012. They were found in a wildlife refuge five months later.

No arrests have been made.

The trip is being paid for by the National Center, according to a post on the Evansdale Police Department’s website.

It’s not the first time the National Center has taken a look at it. There was an initial meeting last summer to review the case and look for more evidence.

There is a $150,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction in the case.
