Carrie Olson was last seen at a 7/11 store in Rock Island and as soon as she was reported missing there was an outpouring of support from the community.

As her family and friends desperately worked to locate her.

Now the community is offering its support to ease the family's pain.

No words can bring Carrie Olson back to her family, but there are words attempting to console their grief. Words from neighbors:

"All of our love, everything goes out to them. We'll pray for them," says family friend Tony Lamanthia.

Words from Facebook posts:

Trish O'lish, my heart aches for her family & friends.

Tina McMaster Klauer, prayers for her friends and family.

Words from those who've gone through the same heart wrenching loss.

"I don't need to ask, I know how they're doing from my own perspective," says Dennis Harker.

His son disappeared in late September. He was found days later in the Mississippi River. Harker says having a search end with the recovery of a loved one's body is not easy, but it ends the torment of not knowing.

"For the Olson family, I know it has been crucial to find Carrie and to be able to know where she is at and to have an answer with that," says Harker.

He says the search for more answers will be hard. There is no easy way to cope with the pain, but he says the Quad Cities is willing to help.

"I would also recommend that, for the family anyway to at some point go back and review that page, look at all the condolence statements. It's on (KWQC) web site, it's on the Find Carrie Olson web site," says Harker.

"I just want to say Dave, Karen, we've been your neighbors for 10 years and if you need anything we're always up here to help you," says Lamanthia.

Words of comfort for unimaginable pain.
