EVANSDALE (KWWL) -

ABATE of Iowa Districts 23 and 16 held a ride Saturday to honor the lives of abducted children.

Jim Will said 66 riders raised $2,072 for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Saturday's ride started at 11 a.m. at Meyers Lake in Evansdale where cousins Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins were last seen riding their bikes in July.

Their bodies were found in Bremer County in December.

Elizabeth Collins' parents, Drew and Heather Collins, thanked the riders for giving to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

"It's a very good organization that you're helping, so your money will go to something very good and positive," said Drew.

Those who couldn't make the ride can still donate to the cause by emailing Jim Will at bul1dog1@yahoo.com.
