Bak Middle School parents gripped by missing nurse

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Deputies with the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office continue to be on patrol Thursday outside the property of a missing Bak Middle School nurse.

Officials were seen shining their spotlights toward Kimberly Lindsey's home and other parts of the neighborhood. 

No one has heard from Lindsey since Sunday night, but family, students and parents are holding out hope she reappears soon. "It's a big mystery. People are venturing guesses, speculation as to what could have happened. How did this happen? Why did this happen? And there are no answers," said Kurt Wyland, a parent from Bak Middle School. 

Wyland was picking up his son Carson from a speech and debate event Wednesday night. He along with other parents at a jazz percussion concert said they were forced to have a tough conversation with their kids about what is happening with their school nurse. "If it can happen to a nurse at Bak, it can happen to anyone. We all know that. But something like this happens and it strikes home," said Wyland. 

What is known is that Lindsey is considered "endangered" and she did not show up for work Monday. 

A search of a pond near her home yielded nothing, leaving many people still wondering. "Who knows what happened? You can only hope for the best. Hopefully we'll get answers to these questions and everything will turn out positive," said Wyland. 

Investigators are offering a $1,000 reward for information.
