Mother of missing Iowa cousin to appear in court

Posted: Updated:

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - The mother of one of the missing Iowa cousins has been ordered to appear in federal court to face a complaint alleging she violated the terms of her supervised release in a decade-old methamphetamine case.

U.S. District Judge Linda Reade has ordered Misty Morrissey to appear in her courtroom in Cedar Rapids on Wednesday, a day after family members will gather to mark the four-month anniversary of the disappearance of Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins.

A summons delivered to Morrissey last week says that probation officials have filed a "supervised release violation petition" against her. Court officials have filed the petition and related documents under seal, shielding them from public view.

The girls disappeared July 13 while riding bikes in Evansdale. Police believe they were abducted and continue to investigate.
