ORANGE PARK, Fla. -- It wasn't a holiday for investigators trying to find the person who killed Somer Thompson.
They're following thousands of leads, but for the first time we're hearing from the Florida Department of Law about how parents can educate their kids on stranger danger.
The neighborhood where Somer Thompson disappeared was busy on Wednesday. Kids were out of school playing and some parents had the day off for Veterans day.
That's not stopping these police officers from trying to solve this case. They're working more than 3,300 leads, trying to get to the one that leads them to a killer.
For week's now, they've searched the woods, a home on Gano Avenue and collected evidence. They've also talked to dozens of sex offenders. So far, they won't say whether they have a suspect.
Dominick Pape is a spokesperson with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. He's seen the evidence, but won't comment on it. He does say in cases like Somer's, sex offenders often know the route to schools, which is where Somer was coming home from.
"Not only in the case of Somer Thompson, but in other past cases, they've been around the route to school," said Pape.
Pape says it's a time to sit down with your children. "We need to be able to educate our children that some people are evil, just evil," he said.
Remember, police need your help to find Somer's killer. If you have information, call the tip line at 877-227-6911 or email the sheriff's office at firstname.lastname@example.org
