Evidence that FBI has uncovered brings hope to a small Iowa community that two missing girls are still alive, ABC News reported.

Friday the FBI found evidence leading them to believe that cousins Elizabeth Collins, 8, and Lyric Cook, 10, who were reportedly abducted on July 13, are still alive, reported ABC News

The two girls were at their grandmother's house when she let them go for a bike ride around 12:15 p.m. and they never came back, the Star Tribune reported.

The girls' bikes were found along with one of the girls' purses at around 4 p.m. on a trail near their grandmother's house, the Star Tribune said.

The man-made lake next to the trail has been partially drained and it has been ruled out that the girls did not drown, the Star Tribune reported.

Officials have questioned family members, including Lyric's father, Dan Morrissey, and mother, Misty Cook-Morrissey both of whom have a history of methamphetamine-related charges. Dan Morrissey has also been charged with assaulting his wife, the Star Tribune reported.
