The Amber Alert issued out of Rock Cave in Upshur County has the entire town talking. Chatting with folks in the community, they all said they're surprised to hear of such a thing happening in their small town.
One mother 5 News talked to said she never lets her son out of her sight and incidents like these are just another thing she'll keep in the back of her mind.
One thing was obvious though, regardless if people knew the family or not, everyone felt connected in some way.
No one wanted to be identified, but a lot of people wanted to talk about what happened, or what they heard. One woman said she heard about the incident from her son, who was in Washington, D.C. at the time. She wanted to know more and checked on-line to see what was going on. She said she's known Margel for a long time and that he's been in the area quite a while.
A man said "My wife told me when I got home from work what was going on. We don't know the family, but you bet we said a prayer."
Interviews with the mother of the teenager who was supposedly kidnapped and the teenager herself will be available soon.
