Police found two inmates who escaped from Cold Springs correctional center Wednesday morning.
Police found Joshua Ansell and Shawn Barb on East Hampton Street in Staunton behind Fisher Auto Parts.
Erica Parker who lives close to where they were found said her biggest concern was her children.
"It's very scary not having your children play out in the porch like they have before," she said.
She said the kids could not even walk home from Bessie Weller Elementary.
"The police were down there and escorted everyone out pretty safely and let everyone know there was something going on," she said.
Police cars and a helicopter surrounded the homes in the Sears Hills neighborhood for about two hours.
Christine Chaplin who lives in the neighborhood said she was surprised.
"[ I was] kinda scared when you hear that inmates are on the loose and they're right by your house," Chaplin said.
Chaplin said when she heard the news, she rushed home to take care of her grandchildren.
"The kids play outside all day long so i was concerned with them," she said.
However, she said she is not concerned that more men will escape from the work release program.
"I think those guys, you know deserve a chance to work and these people that runs, ruins it for the other people," she said.
But Parker said even though some inmates want to change, some can't be trusted.
"Some of them are manipulating," she said. "They're gonna act good until they find a way, a little loophole to get out of it and try to manipulate the system and try to go ahead and escape."
