CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Downtown Cape Girardeau merchants got together to host a "Gone Girl" themed scavenger hunt, dubbed "The Hunt for Amy."

Business owners thought it would be fitting to host an event where a lot of the movie was shot.

More than 100 people signed up to be "volunteers" to search for Amy.

Organizers said the movie put downtown Cape Girardeau back on the map.

They hoped this event would remind people that this area is a great place to come and enjoy.

"Everybody knows there's bars and restaurants downtown," Marti Hartle said. "But do they know there's a little clothing boutique that just opened a couple of months ago? Or do they know that there's 8 art galleries in Cape Girardeau all with walking distance of each other."

Volunteer Dale Humphries said she came out to join in the fun and be a part of the community.

"This is a fun event and the whole 'Gone Girl' thing is just so exciting for Cape Girardeau," Humphries said.

People can still sign-up for the scavenger hunt by picking up a set of clues at Cup 'N' Cork.

The search parties have until 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 27.

Participants will meet at Dockside the Upper Deck to sign up for the grand prize.

The reward is tickets to "Gone Girl", $100 gift certificate for fine dining inside of Port Cape and a hotel night at Candlewood Suites.

In addition to the grand prize, there will be several more chances for participants to win other prizes.
