Friends of Savannah Schneider said it’s 10 days too long.

“It’s been rather gut-wrenching to be honest, you just never know what’s going on,” said friend Krista St-Germain

“You never want this to happen to anyone and then you hear it happened to a friend, it’s just it’s really terrifying, scary,” said friend Lauren Simon.

Many are worried about their friend Savannah Schneider and said this isn’t like her.

“She’s active on social media, she keeps in touch with her friends and she has, like I said earlier, she has a lot of friends and people that care about her,” said Simon.

The Wichita Police Department is heading the investigation and is asking for the public’s help to find her. They are offering a $1000 reward.

“You know where she is at or you see her, we want you to call 911 immediately,” said Davidson.
