DELPHI, Ind. -- "We are forever grateful for your service." The grandparents of Abigail Williams left a message of support Wednesday for investigators who are searching for the person who killed Abigail and her friend, Liberty German.
Abigail, 13, and Liberty, 14, were reported missing on Feb. 13 after they were dropped off to go hiking near the Monon High Bridge in Delphi and didn't return. Their bodies were found the following day in a wooded area near the Delphi Historic Trail.
The families of both girls toured the Delphi investigation headquarters Wednesday, according to an Indiana State Police spokesman.
Abigail's grandparents made a stop at a board where the community can now leave messages for investigators. Their message to police offered prayers and thanks:
"Where are the police when you need them? I have uttered these words whenever a speeding or reckless driver nearly runs me or someone else off the road. Where are the police when you need them? They are here, in Delphi, with us. We pray for your protection, and we are forever grateful for your service" - Diane & Eric (Abby's grandparents)
New signs of support were also posted by students and clergy. One encourages investigators not to quit and says "You are one step closer than you were yesterday. Don't give up." Another shows photos of Abigail and Liberty along with a poem and a placard with the tip line number. And one simply says "Thanks for your dedication and hard work."
