PLAINFIELD, Ind. (WISH) – Some people living in the Plainfield community said they want answers, just one day after authorities served warrants in connection to the cyber threats investigation.

The person behind those threats have targeted Plainfield High School and The Shops at Perry Crossing, but still no arrests have been made in the case.

Students returned to school Wednesday morning for the start of a second semester at Plainfield High School.

The first day back from winter break was Monday.

Mercury Colvin is a junior. He said he went back Tuesday to take finals.

“Less students, everyone was pretty nervous. We got wanded you know? Security was a lot tighter and we couldn’t really roam the halls because they were scared, So were we,” said Colvin.

He said not a lot of people were at school. He said many of his classmates decided to stay home as a precaution.

“I know one of my friends only had two people in their class and I only had about 10 to 15 maybe in each of my classes when we usually have 20 to 30,” said Colvin.

Colvin knows investigators are doing everything they can to solve the case, but his father Christan wants to know how long is it going to take and when the situation is going to be resolved.

“I just wish we knew more. This was all news to us when it was going on,” said Colvin’s dad. “What he’s hearing in school is nothing really came out of it.”

Christan wasn’t sure about sending his son back to school for finals. He and his son are both worried about the days ahead.

“I felt like yesterday, I had to send him to take finals,” said Colvin. “I told him just keep safe if something happens, hide. I don’t know what else to tell him.”

He’s not sure what’s going to happen next, but he’s hoping for some closure.

“I know they’re trying to be secretive about I everything and it’s an ongoing investigation, but we would like something you know? Something like is it a local person? Do they think it’s somewhere else? Who knows?” said Colvin.

Mercury said he wouldn’t mind having counselors at school to help them cope with everything that’s been going on.

24-Hour News 8 contacted the Plainfield School District for the attendance numbers and asked about counselors but had not heard back by publication deadline.
