Someone on there also clarified what happened from the brother's perspective. He glanced out the window and saw her 'hugged' up next to (or so he thought) her BF as they walked into the woods. He thought maybe they were going turkey hunting. Then the neighbor heard the screams so the brother called the BF, who was at work. That's when the brother got worried...

Timeline still doesn't make sense. Brother sees guy in camo with sister. Thinks its her boyfriend. Doesn't do anything. Neighbor hears screams and calls 911. Brother later sees that sister's car is still in driveway....calls Holly's boyfriend and learns he is at work and not with Holly.
But, again, if the neighbor had already called 911, why weren't they already there at the house??

peeples
04-15-2011, 02:57 PM
If you look at the topix thread though it says the neighbor was worried so she told the brother and then the brother called the boyfriend (who was at work) and then LE was called..
so sounds like the neighbor either called the brother or came to the house.........

Or maybe the perp had her in the woods still alive and the neighbor didn't hear her scream till an hour later (perp figured they were far enough away and no one would hear her and he commenced doing what he wanted to do to her).. then the neighbor went to the house and said i just heard screaming in the woods...... That makes more sense......
then when neighbor tells brother she heard screaming.. brother looks outside sees sisters car.. calls boyfriend, finds out sis didn't walk away with boyfriend after all.... calls his mom and brother and mom both call 911 within minutes of one another...

Holly had been dating a local boy, 19-year-old Drew.

The boy's grandmother, Susie Siglow, told The Daily the two were madly in love and planning to marry, and said Drew was too distraught to speak.

"I’ve known Holly for a long time," Siglow said. "Holly would never hurt nobody and she would never run away from home. She is the sweetest person you could ever meet."

She added, "[Drew] is tore up. Last night was the first night they’ve been apart for about a year."

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Kristin Helms said blood had been collected by investigators from the carport but it has not yet been determined if the blood was related to the abduction incident.

http://www.thedaily.com/page/2011/01/05/041511-news-holly-bobo-4-4/

Drew's facebook: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000127654180

Holly's facebook: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1494882246


I am a bit more optimistic with how they are talking now... it reminds me of a couple of other cases that HAVE ended well. Maybe, just maybe....

What Grandma said is consistent with what I've seen. I think the guy absolutely adores Holly. They are a gorgeous couple and I so hope this ends well.

I am not surprised the blood hasn't been connected. I wouldn't be surprised if is totally unrelated.

Nobody should freak out about that unless it's determined to be HOLLY'S blood. Remember, hunters. These people have blood everywhere when they go hunting.

Has LE/TBI confirmmed that there was an hour gap between her "being lead to the woods" and the brothers 911 call? I'm thinking the hour delay is a reporting/rumor error.

According to the source, Holly had two ex-boyfriends. One from a few days ago and the other, she had a restraining order against, because he threatened to kill her. Holly left the house to go to school and her brother heard her arguing with her ex-boyfriend who was dressed in camo, outside the home. He saw them both walking towards the wooded area of the yard, and he went back to what he was doing. About an hour later he noticed his sister's car was still in the driveway. He called his parents, a friend of Holly's and then the ex-boyfriend, and then the police.

Holly's ex-boyfriend was at work earlier and then left and he has not been seen since.

http://www.examiner.com/missing-persons-in-national/holly-bobo-fbi-says-led-away-not-dragged-through-carport

Two ex-boyfriends? Does that include Drew (the current one)? I would think if the brother saw her with the one that she had a RO against he would have intervened or called LE.

I just have the impression that I am TOTALLY CONFUSED.

That I may be totally shocked by a "found safe" banner next to Holly's name.

That we have no clue what actually happened here.

That it is just NOT that hard... to have the person write down exactly what happened. Then hand it to the media.

Really, it's not that complicated!

A thought I just can't get rid of...if her lunchbox was found that far away, I would guess that means the perp came back for her stuff? She couldn't have been holding onto her bag/lunchbox while resisting...you just wouldn't hold on to that stuff. Unless he dragged her by a backpack after the edge of woods? Very confused - I almost feel like the lunchbox is a throw off to LE. I just don't see the perp bothering to bring a bag WITH her, unless she walked by herself (threatened) and had her bag. JMO.

I don't have an exact address for Holly's house but it is in Swan Johnson Road in Darden...

The fairgrounds appear to be about 10 minutes away from there.

With Conrad Ridge Road being 20 minutes from the fairgrounds. So 30 minutes to go to both.

You can cut 5 minutes off going from Darden to Conrad Ridge Road if you don't go to the fairgrounds first and get there in 25 minutes.

If they are going to search Conrad Ridge, why are they meeting at the fairgrounds? 20 minutes seems a bit far to go from the area you gather the volunteers...

Okay, maybe I'm just clinging to hope here.... but I see reason to hope here.

With Ethan in Layton and Ogden Canyon there was no begging for searchers. They knew he was dead.

With Benjamin in the Utah Mountains they begged for searchers, just like they are doing now. They knew they had a little boy lost in the mountains and it was critical if they were going to find him alive. (We did.)

They are begging for VOLUNTEER searchers to go into rugged terrain to look for Holly.

Civilians.

Anyone who can come out and search.

Have we ever seen that kind of urgency when they knew they were looking for a body?

I'm not talking about a desperate family begging for searchers.

I am talking about law enforcement coming out and begging for searchers.

I have a hard time believing LE would ask volunteers to come in and search... for a potentially armed abductor. Or for a murder victim. Just because bad weather was coming in... would they really do this just to beat the storm (which they KNEW about this morning when they didn't BEG for searchers?)

Something changed drastically to cause them to start begging. I think there is reason to hope because they are so desperate and asked for anyone to come help.

What would cause them to do that, other than a strong belief she is alive?

My impression from the local reports via radio is that this area was planned to be searched when they sat and mapped yesterday. They are trying to push forward quickly and with more manpower due to the impending weather, and the idea that A)Holly might be wounded and need medical assistance before the storm, or B) Evidence could be washed away.

I don't think we *know*. The examiner article is quoting the blog from earlier, I think. None of this has been posted in MSM yet.

Even if true, LE may not want this person to know they are onto him so that he doesn't freak and hurt her. Well, seems like whoever has her has already 'freaked', huh?

There was allegedly a cell phone in the car. Maybe the cell phone had a familiar phone number or picture in it?

If they for example looked in and saw a cell phone on the seat, with a picture of Holly as the background....

Or maybe saw her clothes in there?
Or her other missing belongings?
Did she have a purse?
Or a cell phone? Maybe it is HER cell phone?

Or maybe it is totally unrelated and they are totally overreacting...

Also from article:

They said Bobo's 25-year-old brother saw her outside with a man before she was taken on Wednesday morning. But they said he only saw the man from the back and thought it was her boyfriend.

He did not become suspicious until he went outside and saw blood. Then he called 911. Authorities said he is not a suspect.

Thank God, this family does not need anymore heartache or stress......

NOT according to any LE or MMS source....it came as a rumor from one of those poorly written news "blogs" with NO named sources and a lot of the supposed reporter's use of the term "I" this and "I" that kind of things. I'm not going to repost a link here, as I am not sure we are even supposed to link to that particular source. It was in an earlier post on this thread, though.

I hope they don't stop the search, but simply look for her at the same time! That would be horrible if her cell phone battery died and she was at dinner or something... and Holly died because they were looking for her. They need to look for both! If they have a concern that the abductor has hurt her, then once again why do they have civilians looking at all? It sounded to me like they knew something that caused them not to worry about that.

It would have taken less than 30 minutes for that car to cool down.

30 minutes normally, but it is also windy, which would have cooled it down faster.

They only had a 30 minute or less head start on them when they found that car.

I hope this isn't a tragic case of "if only we had gotten there 30 minutes earlier..."

I think one of the most significant things we have heard so far is that the engine of the abandoned car was still warm.

That gives them a very specific location and a very specific time frame to work with.

It's amazing to me that they think she's leaving a trail. I REALLY hope this is the case and that the perp isn't trying to throw everyone off. However, even if he is, they are on his tail. The warm engine tells us he was in the area very very recently and is potentially on foot (maybe in camo). Hopefully they're looking up into the trees. And also into trees that are hollowed out. Seriously. He's close by unless there is an accomplice that provided him with a ride once he ditched the car.

If Holly IS leaving a trail, I have mixed feelings about leaving the cell phone. I wish she would have kept it on her so that LE could trace her pings. If that was impossible for her to do, then I'm glad she left it where it could be found.

This case has my heart pounding because it is such real-time. Praying for Holly.

Someone the FB page is saying that it was *not* found in the area they are searching? Is that correct...? Or am I reading it wrong?

The car has been confirmed multiple places.

Investigators said they found the phone and camouflage clothing inside a vehicle nearly eight miles from Holly Bobo's home.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/42613907/ns/us_news-crime_and_courts/

If the car wasn't abandoned, I'm pretty sure that they would have Holly or a suspect.

Welcome. We are going to do a short news conference to let you know about areas..very limited. Lots of things reported that are not correct.

She was not dragged, not forcefully dragged, not inside the home. Just like any other victim and compliant with her attacker.

She walked into the woods. Brother did what he thought he was right...had reasons to believe that she was not being attacked.

Brother did what he thought was right. Immediately contacted 911. Had reasons to believe it was NOT an attacker.

If he didn't think it was an attacker, why did he call 911?

What I read elsewhere (I think FB... posted the link earlier) was that he saw them out the window, didn't think much of it, then when he went outside he saw blood in the carport and her car still there. That's when he got worried.

There IS a car.

It may not be related to Holly but there is one.

We did not just make this up from speculation.

http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=133296&page=3

I don't know what is going on here... but any hope I had just deflated. I don't think they have a freaking clue where she is. If they can't even explain what happened when she was taken... it's just not that difficult.

Just spit it out... "The brother didn't realize it was an attacker, he thought that it was her boyfriend. So he wasn't concerned until he realized her car was still there and her boyfriend was at work. Then he went outside and found blood. At that point he did what he thought was right and immediately called 911."

Is that so difficult to say if that is what happened?

my impression is the brother *thought* Holly was out talking with her boyfriend & went on about his biz & then when he noticed her car still there- but no Holly, he called the boyfriend & found out he was at work.

I think LE or a reporter saw the blood. that part of it may have not been a big deal to the brother because they are all hunters & that might be animal blood. unless it was super fresh and a lot of it- which i kind of doubt b/c if she was already injured- i think she would have screamed for her brother, believing she had nothing to lose at that point.
