It's been just more than 4 months since two young girls disappeared on a bike ride through Evansdale.
Now, a new reward fund may spur someone to come forward with information leading to Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins.
The two have been missing since July 13.
Local and state police, the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are all working to find the girls but so far, there's been no break in the case.
The new reward will come through Cedar Valley Crime Stoppers.
That group announced Monday it will take donations over the next month that will be put into a reward fund.
That fund would then be paid out to the first person coming forward with information leading to the girls.
Elizabeth Collins parents, Drew and Heather Collins, appeared at the news conference announcing that reward.
They have been very active spreading the word of their little girl's disappearance - putting up flyers with the girls pictures all over the Midwest.
They say every piece of information matters.
"Maybe someone who's been sitting on something, the reward money will be tempting enough to come forward with some information...That maybe they weren't comfortable coming forward with before...Maybe if its at $100,000, they'd look at it, that a lot of money..." said Drew Collins.
Donations are being accepted at:

P.O. Box 1510
