Many residents try to keep hope alive for Procell family

It's business as usual in Many, but that doesn't mean their eyes and ears aren't open for the latest news.

"Everybody knows about it.  It's kind of devastating to whole town.  Something going on like this right here at home," said Anita Darwin, resident.
The conversation at the downtown Tobacco Plus gas station isn't just about the cost to fill up... It's about the search for Tony Procell.
"Everybody in the store is talking about it, and it's sad," said Linda Sparks, Gas station employee.
Sparks says most people know the Procells, and can't believe this is happening to someone they know.
"It's like something really bad happened and we don't know why - no rhyme or reason.  It's just bad," said Sparks.
There's also talk about the Natchitoches police officer now behind bars for the kidnapping.
"I don’t think its right for the police officer to do what he done.  He’s setting a bad example for all other cops... People don’t realize if they can trust other officers or not nowadays," said Kevin Meshell, resident.
This is not only a small - but a tight-knit community, and many folks think the most thing is sending the family prayers and keeping hope alive. They're all trying to stay positive until the end.
"Everybody's hoping they're going to find him, he's going to come back safe," said Ira Kui, resident.
However, that's getting harder to do.
"I think its fading pretty fast," said Ira Kui, resident.
