SALISBURY, Md. - It's a show that portrays FBI profilers who analyze the most twisted criminals.

If you watched Wednesday's episode of Criminal Minds on CBS, you may have noticed the story line took place in Salisbury.

People like Amber Lawrence, of Salisbury, says she couldn't believe it.

"They would mention the Choptank or Wicomico River. They just kept making references. It was a good feeling just to hear about us and for it to be something good," said Lawrence.

Erica Messer is the show's executive writer. She graduated from Salisbury University and attended Stephen Decatur High School in Berlin.

This is an excerpt from the show that aired on Wednesday night: 

"Please tell me this guy is in custody."

"Salisbury Police are at his home and they've been there since the call came in."

"They're hard copies and tablets of both case files on the plane. It's a short flight to the Eastern Shore."

"There'll be more when you land."

Gwen Lehman was Messer's theater teacher.

"She was in different clubs and organizations. She was a real leader, but she always did it quietly. She's amazingly humble. For someone who has actually reached the position she's in because she now is the top executive producer for that show and she's their head writer," said Lehman.

Lawrence says she's happy Messer thought of her hometown.

"She didn't forget where she came from. Thank you," said Lawrence.

Others in Salisbury share Lawrence's appreciation.
