From the link in the OP:

A 20-year-old west Tennessee woman who was last seen being dragged from her house by a man dressed in camouflage might have been abducted in a home invasion Wednesday, authorities said.

Holly Bobo's 25-year-old brother told investigators that he saw the man dragging his sister across the carport at her family home and toward a wooded area, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said.

In one article I read, her brother was inside the house when Holly was abducted. I'm sure he did not just stand there and watch. If he did i'm sure it was because he was in shock and disbelief.

or he could have been tied up.

If she was being dragged across the carport It makes me wonder if her hands and feet were not bound. I'm sure she would have tried to get away if she could have, which makes me think somehow she was not able.

Snippets from the following link:

The neighbor told police that a man wearing camouflage grabbed the young woman, dragged her across her carport and pulled her into some nearby woods.

Authorities are now searching the area. The sheriff said they've been searching a five mile square radius on the ground and by air, but have yet to come up with anything.



No mention of search dogs, but I have to assume/hope they are using them. Especially with a fresh trail.

Praying she is found safely.

A massive search is underway for the missing cousin of country music artist Whitney Duncan. Nashville News Channel 5 reports that investigators believe 20-year-old Holly Bobo was abducted from her home on Wednesday morning. Whitney posted a plea on her Facebook an hour ago “Can someone please post the amber alert…my phone will not let me. Not getting a lot of service. Thanks for all yours prayers!” Hundreds of friends and fans are helping get the word out in hopes of getting Holly home safely

Thanks. I was just looking for this article. IF she was already leaving the house on her way to school and abducted from the driveway I wonder why LE believes possible home invasion? As a college student I'm wondering if the abductor was some guy who developed some abnormal fixation with her or perhaps an old boyfriend?

I'm having a hard time with the brother situation thing here. I know they are not releasing alot of details now but why did he not chase the man down ? Certainly one of the neighbors would have heard a commotion like that, if he was chasing someone....

I'd be cussing like a sailor if someone was draggin my sister off, chasing them down, while on the phone with LE.

I'm praying she is alright, but I am fearing the worst....

Questions:
How long did it take LE to arrive after they were called?

Why hasn't she been found, if they were out there right away?

Did the abductor have a car stashed near the woods for a quick getaway?

Did they live out in the country or did they live in a suburban area?

Have I just gotten too suspicious of everyone after being around so much......
because I had a thought that; what if the brother did something to his sister?
I know. I am off base, but it did occur to me.

There was a neighbor who witnessed this, so unless it was a sick joke played by the brother with a friend (which I am not thinking along those lines) I can't see the brother doing something to her.

I too wondered how long it took LE to get there. How rural is this area? Again on the same page and I am having the same questions.

I'm thinking home invasion is probably unlikely as there is nothing to indicate the perp was inside the home. I'm thinking someone who was fixated on her who she was or perhaps was not aware of... This guy obviously knew what time she left for school.

They pretty much lived in the middle of nowhere surrounded by woods.

(I am not suggesting they are connected, they are 15+ hours apart and totally different profiles. I am just noting how odd it is.)

Okay, WOW.... this girl has not even been missing for 24 hours...

There is a vigil at the 12 hour mark.

The number of people who have changed their profile pictures to her missing poster (not even counting just her picture, which a lot have also done but is more difficult to see) is amazing.

I counted 35 people just in letters A through C alone!

http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1494882246&sk=friends&v=friends

That is amazing as far as support goes for this young lady!

They are going to do searches tomorrow and it sounds well coordinated... with the church having people bring water and other things.

I haven't read every article about this, so I don't know who has been named and who hasn't. So I won't name any names. But, what I've gathered tonight...

Holly's boyfriend (since August 2010 according to relationship status on facebook) has a couple of pictures of himself and Holly but doesn't post much. He is VERY much an outdoors type person and has lots of pictures of that. Hunting, fishing, 4 wheeling, dirt biking... etc.

Her brother appears to also be rather into the outdoors. Holly's boyfriend added him as a friend before he added Holly as his relationship. So maybe he met her through her brother?

I do not see anything "questionable." Drugs, drinking, dark, depressing, etc. I didn't really search, but nothing stood out to me on any of the friends I looked at.

Jenni Lynn Watson keeps coming to mind. Such young, beautiful girls... and their boyfriends look so young too. Makes me feel old and I'm barely 5 years older. :innocent:

I live in a wooded area and there are all kinds of yayhoos that come out of nowhere. They build little shacks in the woods and live in them! It's nuts. That is why I have big, loud, anti-social dogs. I really hope they can search every part of those woods with dogs and she comes home safely! I think seeing guys in camo on and off 4 wheelers is probably pretty common there maybe? She looks like such a sweetie and my prayers go out to her!

Just to add my 2cents.. A couple of questions and a comment

1.) What is the detailed description of the Camo Abductor?
2.)Unless he was a local SO, he would of have to had a car otherwise, what he was planning was to dump the body quickly and then flee.. I don't see taking the risk "fleeing" while dragging someone. (What are the odds that the Camo Abductor was going to wait in hiding outside her house unnoticed?, Abduct her unnoticed?, and that none of the witnesses would give chase? A lot of risks there..)

Lastly this quote..

"Bud Grimes, a spokesman for the University of Tennessee at Martin, said Bobo was studying to be a licensed practical nurse through the Tennessee Technology Center. She was taking classes at the university's extension campus in Parsons, but was not a UT-Martin student"

I hope LE is looking into the Tech class on the Parsons campus for possible strange interactions with classmates (I wonder what her class schedule is or routine..)

There is no detailed description except that he was a white male dressed in camo. That's all they have.

The brother was in the shower and heard her scream when he shut the water off.... ran out in a towel just in time to see her across the field being drug into the woods. He grabbed his pants, cell phone and a gun and called for help as he ran to the woods. He did not see them at the edge of the woods and stopped there waiting on the cops. Needless to say he is extremely distraught over all of this.

This was posted by someone near Holly's town. This makes more sense than what we were hearing earlier. I don't think there is a 4-wheeler involved, from what I'm reading elsewhere; that was apparently a rumor.

I live about an hour from this town, and wanted to let you know that people dressed in camo everyday is very very common. Even the girls dress in camo frequently. The schools are filled with kids dressed in camo. So that is not unusual at all; nor does it mean anything significant in this situation. Hunting, camo, 4 wheelers, woods, mud, etc. is a part of the culture.

A 20-year-old nursing student who was dragged from her home by a man in camouflage may have been abducted in a home invasion, it was revealed today.

Terrified Holly Bobo, from West Tennessee, was dragged across the carport from her family home towards a wooded area on Wednesday morning.
She is the cousin of country music star Whitney Duncan. Miss Duncan, 26, last night made an appeal for fans to pray for Holly's safe return.
'My cousin Holly was kidnapped this morning,' she wrote on Facebook. 'Please pray for her & our family. This is really sad & shocking.'

The brother was in the shower and heard her scream when he shut the water off.... ran out in a towel just in time to see her across the field being drug into the woods. He grabbed his pants, cell phone and a gun and called for help as he ran to the woods. He did not see them at the edge of the woods and stopped there waiting on the cops. Needless to say he is extremely distraught over all of this.

This was posted by someone near Holly's town. This makes more sense than what we were hearing earlier. I don't think there is a 4-wheeler involved, from what I'm reading elsewhere; that was apparently a rumor.

I live about an hour from this town, and wanted to let you know that people dressed in camo everyday is very very common. Even the girls dress in camo frequently. The schools are filled with kids dressed in camo. So that is not unusual at all; nor does it mean anything significant in this situation. Hunting, camo, 4 wheelers, woods, mud, etc. is a part of the culture.

I don't think this is going to end well :( esp. since they don't have a very good description of the perp and the fact that people supposedly dress in camo in this community on a regular basis.

Just now catching up on this case. Seems like LE does not have a lot to go on so far. I have to wonder how close together the homes are on this street where she lives. Could someone who lives right there in the neighborhood have hidden out and somehow circled around and taken her inside their home nearby? She could now be in a house right there closeby. Wonder if the search dogs have gotten any scents. Is the brother the only person who was in the home at the time of this possible kidnapping? I think it has already been mentioned, but let's hope students and faculty at the school where she was studying have been/or are being interviewed to see if anyone stands out in their recent interactions with Holly. All MOO.

The place she lives at is pretty much in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by woods.

Questions:
How long did it take LE to arrive after they were called?

Why hasn't she been found, if they were out there right away?

Did the abductor have a car stashed near the woods for a quick getaway?

Did they live out in the country or did they live in a suburban area?

Have I just gotten too suspicious of everyone after being around so much......
because I had a thought that; what if the brother did something to his sister?
I know. I am off base, but it did occur to me.

I'd like to know that as well;

Her house is literally surround by hundreds of woods.

Read the comments. I really need to hear what the brother has to say about what he saw and why he didn't pursue. I am having some trouble understanding how a person could get very far in the woods while dragging someone unless they had a vehicle waiting. It would have to have been an ATV and it you would be able to hear it driving away. Tennessee got some big rain Monday and the week before. It would still be wet in the woods I would think or at least moist enough for tracks from a vehicle.

First I have seen on a description of the abductor.

I know that I'm asking for a LOT, but has anyone heard/seen WHERE in the woods the guy was headed....like in which direction? I'm wondering if we can map it out and figure out if there is a river, road, or some other quick getaway route on the other side of those woods.

This is such an odd kidnapping. The liklihood of it being completely random is nill. I think this person knows Holly personally/professionally and specifically went there to kidnap her. It's incredibly shocking that this would be attempted at 7:30 in the morning, at her own home, while other family members were present. What is with all of these absolutely brazen kidnappings lately?? Very terrifying.

I also doubt they could get very far in an ATV in those woods. I'm thinking maybe it was not an ATV but possible a car or van etc that was waiting.

Plus, I don't know how far someone could travel on foot with another person in the woods.

No, only that they were headed into the woods. Her house is in a very rural area surrounded by woods so she could be anywhere.

It appears that the carport is to the north. The road that they live on goes off to the north west at that point, so they may have headed in that direction to a waiting vehicle without traveling too far through the woods. IMO

I think-after looking at the map-there is no way the kidnapper travelled all the way there on foot unless he's a neighbor. I think the vehicle was stashed somewhere.....close enough for him to drag her to it and leave the area before LE made it to the scene.

I have some questions about that as well. It was stated earlier on here that by the time he grabbed his gun and got outside and to the edge of the woods, he could not see them so he waited on LE. Seems like he would be able to 'hear' them. Unless she was dead weight (as in knocked out, tied up, drugged - and it doesn't sound like the perp had time to do that), she would be putting up a fight, trying to scream, etc. And if on an ATV, you can hear those things quite some distance. I grew up in areas like this with ATVs, etc, and I'm just trying to wrap my head around the whole scenario that transpired.

I agree whole heartedly. I live in the country and you can hear everything for miles - ATV, car, chainsaw, person hammering, music, dogs barking - and I can tell which direction even if I don't know exactly where it is coming from.

Oooo this worries me. It doesn't sound good. I wonder if the brother's story only seems kinda weird becaues LE has just made certain parts available. But overall it doesn't make a lot of sense.

From what I gather... she was outside (?) in her car port, her brother was outside (somewhere) and saw her being dragged off into the woods but he didn't pursue them directly and waited for LE. That doesn't make a lot of sense... but I don't know.

I was in a situation with my sister and there is no way I would have 1) gone inside for something 2) watched them go away without doing anything 3) just sat around waiting.

I would venture this was not random. I would think it was either someone stalking her, perhaps from school that had cased out her house or, the usual ex boyfriend. Neither way looks good

Investigators initially believe the young woman may have been abducted from her house in a home invasion, but John Mayer, spokesman for the TBI told ABCNews.com that "the suspect was never inside."

Police won't comment on what else family members told them or what evidence may have been left behind.

"The investigation is ongoing," said Mayer.

I don't think her brother was outside, but I don't know for sure. Someone had posted earlier that her brother was inside in the shower. He heard Holly screaming, jumped out of the shower and ran outside (to where she was) just in time to see her being dragged into the woods.

Preface..
I don't think her brother or mom had anything to do with her being kidnapped...

BUT something really weird is going on..either LE is keeping most details secret or her family was too shocked to do anything...
If the knife they found in the woods is related that is even stranger.. a knife wouldn't keep me form intervening.. a gun would but not a knife...
Secondly why abandon the knife.... he'd need to keep hold of it, to keep her under control unless she was out cold or dead already.. but how would he do that, THAT QUICKLY??? stab her.. there would be screaming which the family would be able to hear because he wouldn't have been able to get very far, a gun, they would have heard that go off.. chloroform??? That is a posibility.. with her out with that he wouldn't need the knife right away...
For some reason with as well as this seems to have been planned out.. it seems like a foray into SKing, not a general kidnapping...

Just my thoughts

peeples
04-14-2011, 02:20 PM
more thoughts... this seems very well planned out....
BUT why take her with family home.. why risk that?? If he's been watching.. he knew they were there..
WHy not take her on one of the country roads she drives or something... get her to pull over or wait till she got to campus and grab her at the parking lot would be easier to pull up behind her car with his, put a knife to her back and say you're coming with me.. has he cased it and know they have cameras??? Why worry about that unless he has a pretty distinctive vehicle, it's easy to bend your plats up for a bit so your plate number cannot be read.......
If she was being drug and probably kicking.. were her shoes found or at least 1 of them???

Investigators say the brother is helping with the investigation, and they are looking into the possibility that someone may have checked out her home before the abduction. Police are asking neighbors to report any unusual people or cars in the area.

I dont beleive they ever caught or convicted anyone in Morgans case... Prayers to Hollys family and hope she is found safe soon.

I beleive Holly was also often a performer at church or other events so that also cound be where the perp started his fixation with her.. but it wouldnt seem that this was a random crime but instead that Holly wasi n fact the intended target. however seriously wonderign how far this guy could go with a struggling victim on foot thru a wooded area..

I also doubt they could get very far in an ATV in those woods. I'm thinking maybe it was not an ATV but possible a car or van etc that was waiting.

Plus, I don't know how far someone could travel on foot with another person in the woods.

Where could a car be park in the woods? Is there trails in the woods?

I also don't get in some of the reports they say "may have been abducted"
another one is "fear abducted" To me she was abducted:banghead:

The family owns 20 acres of mostly wooded property near their home as well. There is lots of water around that area where they live. The TN River and KY Lake are not too far away either.

My thoughts are that someone was planning to either break into the house that morning, or was pilfering around outside to steal things, and Holly just happened to walk outside to leave for school...the guy saw her and she got a good look at him so he took her to keep her from identifying him. I think it was a random abduction, but not random robbery event.

I also think that there was someone else driving a vehicle that would have been pulled into the yard for the robbery, had the perp been successful in getting into the house, or had he found something of value to steal. Since he probably didn't know if they were at home, he didn't want to risk pulling up in a vehicle. After all, the family works so he most likely thought they would be gone by that time. Once he would have found the house empty, he would have called on cell phone for the driver to come into the yard area so they could load up the truck/car with the goods. As it was, with him taking Holly, he had to run somewhere (the woods area) and was then picked up by the driver.

The search area was widened Thursday and covers rugged terrain with trees and brush so thick that at least one search dog had to be carried by its handler on Wednesday afternoon, police said. Authorities also were using a helicopter to scan from the sky.

The abductor could not have dragged her through this on foot. So many questions!

May be, but my thought here is that someone just there to rob the house would flee on foot alone. That's much faster than abducting a woman and taking her with you. I think whatever happened - she was the intended target. JMHO

Authorities said the 911 center received two phone calls when Holly Bobo, 20, was abducted Wednesday morning from her Decatur County home. One call was from her 25-year-old brother, who was in the home, and the other was from a woman police did not identify.

The sheriff of the county said investigators found blood in the car port of the home.

~~~

Okay, it has been established, I think, that mom was there too. So why not identify her as the second 911 caller? I've yet to see mention of dad. Was mom dating someone?

ETA: Nevermind...I went reading and found this quote: Bobo's mother is an elementary school teacher, and her father works for a tree service company.

Quite possible, but this is a very small town...a rural community where everyone knows everyone. I think Holly saw the guy, realized what was occurring and his instinct was to grab her and run to keep her from identifying him. He probably had a plan already of where to run in the event that things didn't go as planned, so the driver met him there. He just had a victim with him.

And unfortunately many times, they get rid of the victim so they can not be ID'd. I don't think one person could have done this alone.

Is there anyone on here that is local? What type of road do they live on? Is it paved, dirt, gravel? From the aerial maps it is hard to even see the road, let alone what type it is, which leads me to believe that it may be dirt or gravel. The closest house appears to be to the south, but it is hard to say, since the resolution is not very high. There is a pond that separates the property. I still haven't figured out where the barn supposedly is.

IMO...HB either new her attacker (maybe not closely) or "he" new her from somewhere. Possibly where she goes to school. I think he had been probably watching her, learned her routine and knew the best time to grab her and the best "escape" route to take. The whole things sounds too planned out to be a "robbery/home invasion" attempt that went wrong. Its a small town, so I would look at acquaintences, co-workers, classmates, even friends....check to see if anyone fitting that description didn't show up for work or class, etc...

Mayer would not say if family members tried to intervene or if they were suspected in the abduction.

~~snip~~

Investigators initially believe the young woman may have been abducted from her house in a home invasion, but John Mayer, spokesman for the TBI told ABCNews.com that "the suspect was never inside."

Police won't comment on what else family members told them or what evidence may have been left behind.

"The investigation is ongoing," said Mayer.

I noticed her father is in tree work from the above quoted article.

This is crazy. Either someone is mentaly ill or they are paying someone back in a major way. This screams young guy crime to me ,because he left the witness standing there and he was wearing all camo. I think an older guy might think he looked suspect in the middle of the day in camo in the spring. Plus it also seems rash to move in on her in the car port. I think an older person would wait out for a better window.

also her mother is a elementary teacher from other reports I have read (sorry read so many I will have to bring back a link) but her mother could have left for work already..

I know that in the presser the dad said that it had to be someone close that knew their routines... when they were home... etc...

I am thinking both parents could have been gone to work?

If his face was covered with a mask though then the brother might not have been able to recognize if it was someone he'd seen before or not. The mask theory would also make since because the description (white male wearing camo..) is so vague (no hair color, facial hair, etc).

bbm, ITA Ms F

so the perp goes up to the door with intent dressed in camo

than drags her into the woods

he has premeditation here.. a hideout.. stashed his vehicle, etc.

he also does something to her to make her bleed on the carport .... so there should be some sort of blood trail or at least scent trail that would lead to somewhere you would think. I truly hope that LE has a whole lot more than they are sharing.

I also am thinking of the Mackenzie Cowell case here... someone she could have run into at school that was obsessed with her. Was he not planning on brother being home that morning? We do not know much about the brother (where he works, goes to school etc).

This seems very highly planned though... for the perp to be dressed for the occasion to blend into the woods and than drag poor Holly right into them.

this is so confusing....I just wish we could get an accurate account of what happened and who was really at the home at the time of the event...It's just so sad for this poor girl. It sounds like she was possibly being stalked, probably some wacko she didn't even know was watching her....IMO. Criminals don't usually change their MO....meaning a thief would not become a kidnapper usually. Why take a victim? Especially if he hadn't already stolen something, the offenses are so completely different in the court system.

Ok so I have found the property maps of the property.

http://www.assessment.state.tn.us/SelectCounty.asp

Select Decatur county. Put in Bobo in owner name,hit search, select Dana bobo, 618 Swan Johnson Rd. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and hit "View GIS map for this parcel. " You can zoom in and out on the map and move it around.
If you look real close you can see all kinds of trails and such meandering around through the trees. There is one in specific if you go towards the back of the property further out it actually connects back to Swan Johnson Rd heading North East I believe.........

Aerial images of the Bobo home taken from an online news report. Kind of grainy, but it helps orient the home/barns to the map.

Is this the school she was attending http://www.utm.edu/departments/ecce/parsons.php#courses ? If it is, I don't think the campus is very big at all. It's a satellite campus for UT Martin. According to these Parsons City Council meeting minutes (http://www.cityofparsons.com/documents/regular_minutes/regular_meeting_2008-0107.pdf) from 2008, at the time they had 150 students.

Hopefully LE has, or is, checking to see what students/faculty were not in attendance the day Holly was abducted. It would at least be a way to rule out if someone from the school that may have been obsessed with her was involved.

Also, has anyone read whether or not Holly had a job? That could be another place someone could have come into contact with her.

I am surprised NG has not picked up on Holly's apparent abduction by now...she does love the cases with the young blond girls. Sooner she grabs hold, more chance she may do some good...

At the colleges my husband and I attended, attendance was only taken on final and midterm days. There was just too many students, and the professors were all about personal accountability.
I'm not even sure how they would know if there was missing students.

Mom was just on the local news. They are talking about blood in the driveway. Also saying an hour passed Between her abduction and the 911 call. Brother thought it was the boyfriend in the woods but now they are saying it wasn't him.

True.......I guess they're not like HS.....they don't care whether you show up or not. It's a small campus though so at least LE doesn't have thousands of people to interview. I would imagine they'll be doing some questioning at the school though.

Apparently she didn't sense she was in any kind of danger or had someone watching her or acting strange......seems like she was close to her family and would have mentioned it to them if she was "aware" someone might have been stalking her or making her feel uncomfortable.

This is a small town and if in fact they do have a brief description of the get away vehicle, it should be a bit easier to locate those owners with that type of vehicle. Perhaps why the LE are not releasing too much info as they have an idea of who it may be or may be in the process of elimination.

If the brother was threatened, why did he wait to call 911? That does not make any sense at all. He felt too threatened to help, yet he did not fear for his sister?? How old is this brother?

we're not talking about some helpless teen here...

brother is 25; WHY in the heck would you WAIT a whole HOUR to call 911?

and why didn't brother think it was strange that the "boyfriend" was dragging Holly off into the woods & threatening harm to her if he followed?

Either he was so traumatized by the event that he could not think straight enough to call 911 right away.

I really have a bad feeling about this one.

Sadly, if harm has come to his sister, he will be thinking about this for the rest of his life and wishing he did call 911 right away.

I do believe they are full siblings, they share a last name and live together. So I see no indication of a step sibling here... just for the record.


Mom was just on the local news. They are talking about blood in the driveway. Also saying an hour passed Between her abduction and the 911 call. Brother thought it was the boyfriend in the woods but now they are saying it wasn't him.

An hour? That is plenty of time for him to get her in a car and get away. :banghead:

Unless she just casually walked away with him, there is no reason for this.

If he dragged her into the woods and it WAS her boyfriend... (which it wasn't, he was way too tall and way too big) you still call.

If he was really told not to follow them or Holly would be killed, you call no matter who it is.

If you see your sister being dragged away by a stranger, whether there is communication with said stranger or not... you call.

An hour? OMG... They may have been able to find her in the woods in that hour...

Why in the world would you wait an hour to call 911 ? The brother situation has been bothering me from the get go.
I wish we knew when the other 911 call came in, there is a good reason LE is not letting that info out ....
