CHILTON COUNTY, AL (WBRC) - Isabella High School students return to a normal school day with extra security after word of a threat on social media led to only 28 students attending class Monday.

Chilton County Sheriff John Shearon never found evidence of a credible threat, but the school system decided to excuse absences Monday because of concern.

The school has an enrollment of 720.

Sheriff Shearon said more than 20 students were interviewed Sunday night and throughout the day Monday.

"Nobody knows anything. They were told by so-and-so. You go back to that person and nobody can pinpoint where it came from or offer credible evidence that anything was ever said," Shearon told WBRC.

The sheriff's office was contacted by the school Sunday evening after many parents contacted the school with concerns. The sheriff investigated claims that a threat was posted on Snapchat following an incident at the school Thursday.

Shearon said he never found evidence of the post.
