Wakulla County is a community still reeling from the disappearance of 12-year-old Briana Shultheis.
Christi Rivers, a Wakulla County resident, said, “There's a lot of shock, I work with kids all the time, and you get to know them by their names, you get to know the parents.”
It was a night of fun at this park for parents and their children, but in a tight knit community these parents’ thoughts were somewhere else.
Kari Edwars, a mother of three, said, "It's very scary to know in such a small community where most people look out for their neighbors that something like this could happen."
Mary Williams, also a parent, said, “Scary, I've got two children of my own, and if my children were abducted, then I would be devastated."
While there is concern for their own children, most of these residents just want the Shultheis family to know that their thoughts are with them.
Joyce Young, a Wakulla County resident, said, "And I just want to say to them I hope that everything turns out okay."
For the kids, it's just another night of fun in the park, but these parents say they are watching them just a little more closely. The Georgia Bureau of Investigations has issued their own Amber Alert for Briana Shultheis.
