As the search for the bodies of four men who disappeared after a party in a hotel room in Florida turned into a massive manhunt, their families said they are still in shock over what happened.

“It’s just a nightmare,” said Scott Thomas, who had a dream of his two sons being among the dead.

“They are just the ones that went missing.

They were just the kids that went to the party.”

Thomas, of Fort Myers, and his wife, Amy, who also lives in Fort Myers and works in tourism, said they’ve struggled to put words to the memories of their sons, Christopher, who was 15, and Jacob, 14.

“We had no idea that it was going to get out to the media,” Amy Thomas said.

“But it was just like a dream and you can’t sleep at night.”

It was the second night of the party, which was held at a downtown Orlando hotel on July 12, 2014.

“I was sleeping with a friend, and we were having a good time,” Christopher Thomas said in a phone interview from his home in Fort Pierce.

“And then I heard a bang, and I went to investigate and I saw a car parked outside.

And I just started crying, because I didn’t know what to do.”

Thomas and his brother, James, both had to go to the hospital and were in intensive care.

Jacob Thomas had to stay in a hospital overnight.

They each suffered minor injuries and were released, according to their father, who declined to give his last name.

The next day, Christopher Thomas was taken to the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport for a psychiatric evaluation.

It was there that he learned his sons had been killed.

“The police said that it would be a suicide,” Christopher said.

Jacob and Christopher Thomas had a brief conversation with a police officer after being questioned by investigators.

They did not have a cell phone and were allowed to leave the hotel, according and the police report.

It took them almost two months to find the bodies, and James Thomas said his father had not heard from him since July 2014.

He said he’s still not sure how the case was solved.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement said it will take the death of Christopher Thomas into consideration in the investigation.

Police are asking anyone with information about the case to call them at (407) 647-7463.
