Saturday of 2012 Iowa Irish Fest dedicated to missing girls


The 2012 Iowa Irish Fest committee has dedicated Saturday, August 4, as Elizabeth & Lyric Day at the festival.

10-year-old Lyric Cook, and Elizabeth Collins, whose 9th birthday was Tuesday, were last seen riding their bicycles in downtown Evansdale nearly three weeks ago.  Authorities have ruled the case an abduction.

The Irish Fest committee is asking everyone to wear something pink in support of the families and friends of the missing girls Saturday.  An information table will be set up at the festival with information about the case.
