Iowa girl went missing days earlier


Jane Velez-Mitchell spoke to Daniel and Misty Morrissey, the parents of missing Iowa girl Lyric Cook. Lyric and her cousin went for a bike ride Friday afternoon and haven’t been seen since. But as Daniel describes, Lyric also wandered off only days earlier.

He tells Jane Velez-Mitchell, "I was in Waterloo at my mom's house with my son. And I was taking a nap and my wife called and woke me up and told me Lyric was missing. This had just happened probably four days before that where she was supposed to go to, you know, a certain destination and then come back and after a while she hadn't come back. They went to that destination and she wasn't there. So things got stirred up. My wife called me then and told me the same thing. That she's missing. I told her to call the cops. And they went around to drive around some more and all of a sudden my daughter's calling me from my wife's phone and saying, Daddy. So four days after that I'm getting another call from my wife saying the same thing, you know. So I'm like what?"

Police are draining a lake in their search for the two girls. Their bikes were found near the lake and the FBI has confirmed that search dogs have hit on their scent. 

Police say so far, they have no evidence of foul play, but Jane's panel of experts fear these two young girls may have been abducted.
