EVANSDALE, Iowa —

Police in Iowa say an autopsy has confirmed that two bodies found last week in a wildlife area are those of two young cousins who have been missing since last summer.

Evansdale Police Chief Kent Smock says he received confirmation Monday from the Iowa State Medical Examiner's Office that the bodies were Elizabeth Collins and Lyric Cook, who had been missing since July 13. The full autopsy hasn't been released to police.

Elizabeth was 8 and Lyric was 10 when they went for a bike ride and didn't return.

Hunters found their bodies last week in the Seven Bridges Wildlife Area, about 25 miles from where the girls were last seen.

Authorities closed the park while they searched for evidence but now have reopened the area.
