EVANSDALE, Iowa (AP) — Two Iowa girls have been missing for a month, but the FBI says leads make investigators believe the girls are still alive.

Ten-year-old Lyric Cook and her cousin Elizabeth Collins, who has since turned 9, were reported missing July 13 from the Waterloo suburb of Evansdale. The bikes were found at a nearby lake about four hours after their grandmother had last seen them.

The Des Moines Register says (http://dmreg.co/Ntkc6o) FBI spokeswoman Sandy Breault (broh) would not discuss the leads nor say whether investigators believe the girls were kidnapped for ransom, abducted by a relative or abducted by a nonrelative.

The likelihood of finding abducted children alive drops as time goes on, but Breault and others say it's important for relatives and investigators to not give up hope.
