DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa has set up an email account for tips about two young cousins who disappeared eight weeks ago in Evansdale. Charis Paulson is the assistant director of the Iowa Department of Criminal Investigation. She told The Des Moines Register  that it’s the first time authorities have set up an account for use in a case like this. She says authorities are doing everything they can to make sure the word is out and to make sure people have an easy way to contact law enforcement. Ten-year-old Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Cook, who has since turned 9, disappeared on July 13. Investigators have found few clues that may lead to the whereabouts.
