Since Nichole Cable went missing on Mother’s Day, the community has been doing what they can to show their support.From posting Nichole’s picture on flyers throughout businesses and utilities poles in town, to posting them online, the disappearance of Nichole Cable has been a tense and emotional one for many.Jason Wiley, Nichole’s stepfather said, “we want to thank the community for all its help. we appreciate everything that everyone has done and all the efforts they have done. we appreciate the community for coming together.”For Nichole’s schoolmates, this has been a very emotional time the RSU 34 Superintendent, David Walker, addressed the media about how students and faculty at Old Town High School are doing.”We were notified earlier this morning of the discovery of a body here in Old Town. We activated an all too familiar protocol which provides for the care and the staff in response to such tragedies. Guidance staff from all schools within the RSU were on hand at Old Town High School to respond to student and staff needs. My heart goes out to that family today as they deal with the loss of their child. High school students don’t like it when I refer to them as children, but they are our children, whether it’s my biological child, or one of the children I am entrusted to care for in my school system, there’s a sense of grief,” said Walker.Messages have been written on the missing poster that was set up near Nichole’s home.As well as messages of support from the large social media community that has been following things since she went missing.An event started on Facebook to spread awareness of the missing teen planned for Friday, has turned to one in honor of her.”The family contacted me this morning, via Facebook, and asked that I continue the balloon release in memory of Nichole. I was thinking about cancelling, due to recent events, and I want to respect the family, and they reached out and said, please don’t, continue the event, so we are still inviting everyone to BJ’s Market on Friday at 6:30,” said Holly Michaud, an organizer of the balloon release.
