Safety Awareness Day in honor of cousins murdered 4 years ago

Posted: Updated:
EVANSDALE (KWWL) -

Today we honor two cousins who are gone but not forgotten.

Four years ago today someone kidnapped cousins Elizabeth Collins and Lyric Cook near Meyers Lake in Evansdale. 

Angel's Park Memorial Island is a beautiful park in honor of cousins Lyric and Elizabeth who went missing back in 2012.

Their bodies were found months later, and police are still working today to find who killed them. 

Police chief Jeff Jensen tells me they continue to get new tips and information even today.

Police are interested in anything people have to say about the case. When stepping into the Evansdale Police station, it's clear these two girls are on the officers' minds every day. 

There's pictures and information about the girls hanging on the walls and in frames on desks. 

Today, at the island, there will be a Child Safety Awareness day in honor of Lyric and Elizabeth.

It's to prevent a tragedy like this from ever happening again. 

The Safety Awareness Day event runs from 4 until 7 Wednesday night. 

An interesting to note, once people learned about the event, police started receiving more tips about Lyric and Elizabeth.
