I guess it's the timeline throwing me off. It just seemed like the time they got to the lake was almost immediate. But...the timeline seems rather untrustworthy too.

Great point. Thanks for posting that. I had forgotten how serious DCS is or can be.

"Somber" is the word John Johnson of Waverly used to describe the atmosphere surrounding Meyers Lake on Thursday, as the search for Elizabeth Collins, 8, and Lyric Cook-Morrissey, 10, pushed into yet another day.
Whether it be to pass on prayers or show their support, membersS of the surrounding communities continue to gather on the shores of Meyers Lake, desperate for any kind of news.
"I think we all feel the need to be a part of something bigger than ourselves," Johnson said. "And that's what this is, and is why we are all here today."
The mood by the lake may be somber, but as the one week mark of the girls' disappearance nears, supporters still aren't giving up hope.

nothing about this case adds up...it is so confusing and frustrating!! as someone who lives in the area here I just want to put a special shout out of thanks to you guys!! it is so nice to be able to talk about this with people who understand that people have questions, and senarios running through thier minds. i totally respect the the rule about not bashing the parents and i love that, but you get the feeling that you can't be outspoken with questions and such here with local people. and that is very hard to try to reconcile in your mind especially with the rumor mill of small, iowa towns! i really appreciate all you are doing! Thank you!

There are many aspects of the case that do not make sense. But we do not have all of the information that the police have. During an active investigation, the actions of those directly involved(police, witnesses, victims) never seem to make any sense because we, as outsiders arent privvy to all information. We get what they want us to know and withhold, rightfully so, much information. I trust the police/FBI know what they are doing.

I think this is really common. Here is an article about two recent drowning cases. It took two hours to find the child in a small body of water, 4 feet deep. See Image below. Police were called and the first place they looked was in the pond. Kids are drawn to water and the likelihood of a child drwoing in a body of water in the immediate area is much higher than a stranger abduction. IMOO.

http://www.helmets.org/mandator.htm

shows helmet laws in all 50 states last updated 25 june 2012. Iowa does not appear to have any helmet laws.

Why does it seem like sooooo many people (mainly kids and young women) are disappearing lately and are never found?????

I sure hope this case is different.

It is my understanding that the grandmother, mother, and brother of Lyric went out looking for them by car. There are several small parks in E'dale that kids go to play, all relatively close. Meyers Lake is one where adults also go, to fish, hike, ride bikes, picnic, etc. From what I've heard/read, they got out of the vehicle at Meyers Lake to ask ppl who were there - sounds like they may have done the same at other parks, too.

I don't get the impression that, once they (family) decided the girls were not where they thought they might find them, that they just immediately went to the lake. It would be one of several places that would seem obvious to check.

The river, which is actually close to their home, would be across River Forest Rd, and over a tall dike, built to keep E'dale dry in event of flood. My own children and I drive by it almost daily, and it was only recently that I discovered that my kids didn't know the river was on the other side of that dike. Also, anyone walking or climbing over or along that dike would likely be spotted. Little girls would be hard-pressed to attempt to ride their bikes up it - its not steep, but steep and high enough.

Grandma, Tammy, and Elizabeth's older brother were out in a car looking for the girls, IIRC, and went to other places before they went to Meyers Lake. It was at Meyers Lake that Tammy stated the man said that he had seen the girls riding their bikes (can't remember the time, now -- not very long before they asked, IIRC). I would assume that is the reason why the other family members met them at Meyers Lake.

I have lived in several states and helmets are not required on a bike for kids. I make my kids wear them, if I can catch them going out the door...but...most kids in the areas I live do not wear them or even own them. This reminds of those things that circulate the internet about if you grew up in the 1960's, 1970's or 1980's...you never wore a helmet, stayed out all day, climbed trees, were booted out of the house until dinner time, etc...amazing we survived...LOL.

While they are planning on sifting through Evansville garbage, they really DO seem to be putting most of their efforts into the lake.
Maybe a witness came forward and said they saw someone throw something into the lake. Not a body but an object or a plastic bag. : IDK

This is so long ago my question probably doesn't matter, but would that cause her to have jail time again? Here in California anyway she MIGHT get 14 days with an ankle bracelet, but I'm starting to see it might be a bit different other places.

Nope, we have to wear helmets here in WA too. You're not the only crazy state that has their lawmakers racking their brains to think up new laws to put on the books.

ETA: I do agree that we should all wear a helmet when biking, I just don't think our lawmakers should be spending time/money on creating these types of laws. IMO they should be spending more time on criminal behavior laws, not common sense laws. Same thing goes for the lawmakers who are trying to ban foods and limit the size of pop you can buy.

I think one the the most important things we forget is the number one rule in any rescue or recovery is the rescuers safety takes priority over the victim. Otherwise you end up with multiple victims, etc. While it is frustrating, and can be horrible to watch someone perish, to have to wait or what not, the scene has to be secured and safe according to what the situation is, conditions, etc...

Looks like the parents have been advised by attorney not to speak/take any further poly tests. What does this mean?

I don't think it had been and it's a GREAT pic, thank you! I've been hoping for one of the girls together just to get an idea of what someone might see out and about. Not that I live anywhere near there but I've started really caring and worrying about these two girls. I so hope they are ok!

I really don't think they were wearing bicycle helmets.

In the first place, based on my observations living and traveling in the midwest, the majority of people don't wear helmets. This is especially true for kids riding around by themselves in the neighborhood. On my street in a Minneapolis suburb I maybe see one out of 20 kids wear one.

Also, I've never seen it noted in the description of them, and since where and if the helmets were found would be an important clue I think we would have heard abotu it by now if they were.

I think she was convicted of manufacture of meth/precursers...she would be looking at years in prison...sounds like she served some time, got out on parole and violated her probation by failing a court ordered drug test.
