SHELBYVILLE, TN (WSMV) -
Shelley Mook, Paul Massicotte, Chloie Leverette and her 7-year-old brother Gage are all from Bedford County and all are missing.
Hundreds gathered in Shelbyville to remember their missing loved ones but also to keep their cases in the forefront.
Bedford County is a very small community with only about 45,000 people in it. So when something tragic happens, in this case, people disappearing, it affects everyone.
The whole community rallies together for strength and to help bring closure.
Friends and family joined forces with area law enforcement Saturday to remember their missing loved ones.
People like Leo Massicotte who's son Paul disappeared July 3, 2011.
"Just bringing awareness for all of the people that have come up missing in this area. It's ridiculous, we never knew that there were this many people missing in this one area," said Leo Massicotte.
"The way they lost their loved one and don't know what happened to them it makes it difficult," Bedford County Mayor Eugene Ray said.
About 300 people across Tennessee are considered missing, with six in Bedford County alone.
Two of the six people missing in Bedford County are 9-year-old Chloie and her brother Gage who have been missing since their house burned down back in September.
Saturday hundreds laced their shoes in Shelbyville for the Missing and Murdered in Tennessee event.
Marchers walked from the courthouse to Central High School where another missing person, Shelly Mook, worked.
She has been missing for almost two years.
A friend of Mook's believes there is a break in her case coming soon.
