    Remember that more than one LE agency is involved and are under different pressures. That could be a cause.

    Anyway, here is the Map, maybe it will be helpful to you.

    These are my opinions only and should not be misconstrued as factual.

    I wonder if the parts about the blood and lunch box were released before some other agency came in and said "no more info".

    I hope whatever it is they are doing, works. I think it has gone on too long for this veil of secrecy to continue, but what do I know.
    Just my opinion, of course.

    Whoever gave LE a tip as to where to find anything related to the case has to know a lot more than a passerby.
    A called in tip could just be a cover story for information they got some other way.

    With the parents/family not going on TV to make more pleas for her safe return, it seems sort of strange. I understand how distraught they are though and it would take a huge amount of strength. But even in the case of Brittany Smith, who was allegedly abducted and her mother was found murdered in their home, her aunts eventually went to press conferences to make pleas for her safe return. I remember thinking it was sad when this first happened that with her mom now deceased and her being abducted, who would be there to go on TV and plea for her return. I know there are other cases such as there not being an immediate family member left to speak to media, but just seems to me, the family would want to go on and try to communicate how much they love her and to please don't hurt her and to please just send her home to us. And speak directly to her and tell her they love her and will not stop searching for her. This is one of the first cases where I have not seen family go to media and at least say to their missing loved one that they are looking for them. I am no way passing judgment on this poor family, as they may very well have reasons we are not aware of for not doing this. (MOO)

    I agree that is an underlying theme. I think that is the end game moment in his mind. He may just want to see how long he can keep the game going.

    If it's C this is the #1 reason they need to tell people IF it definitely was hers. They don't need to say what, just that it 100% belonged to her.

    A culmination of factors and evidence will undoubtely jar someones memory or push a suspicion over to "I think XYZ did it".

    At some point, maybe soon, I think LE will have to make a decision about putting what they know (if anything) out there to ask the public for real help, looking for a specific vehicle, showing a mugshot, whatever they may have. Picking up bits and pieces of things in the woods that may have nothing to do with Holly are not helping to find her, at least not thus far. LE is notorious for not wanting to release info, but if they are truly stuck, they may have to admit that as well.
    Just my opinion, of course.

    How unusual would an ATV at 7 am be in that area?
    I know of areas where it wouldn't stand out at all as everyone has one and uses them to go feed their horses, check their property, put mail in the box, etc.... But what's the case in that area?

    "We have taken in hundreds of pieces of possible evidence, so we are sorting through it to see if it is related to Holly or not," Kristin Helm, a spokeswoman for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, told The Huffington Post.

    On Sunday, investigators announced they had found a "significant" item. Volunteers reportedly told Fox 13's Earle Farrell the significant piece of evidence is a cell phone. Helm declined to comment and would only say that there are "lots of rumors and speculation."

For some reason I feel she is still alive and that's a feeling I've never had in other cases.
    I agree.

    The first month of Shawn Hornbeck's captivity, FBI said that perp Michael Devlin told his pizza parlor boss that he had to go home twice a day to "medicate a sick cat."

    I googled that and found that an average ATV holds about 4 gallons of gas and can travel approx. 70-80 miles on that. This was on an ATV forum and some posters said they had added a larger gas tank to their ATV so they could go further while others mentioned bringing extra gas along with them.

    along that line......LE only released that a neighbor heard a scream...no mention of any other sounds...ATV....i would think a car would be much quieter....so perhaps the car went away from the neighbors house

    That was what I thought when I read the comment about the noise. In my area, (West Tn), people wouldn't think a thing about hearing an ATV, it is so common...

    I assume ATVs are very common in that area and wouldn't get anyone's attention...?

    just north of parsons. My parents live in Memphis and have a place on te beech river. My point is, it is a little town, but lots
    of folks travel through.

    Also, something weird. They were searching on the west side of hwy 69. That would have been thrown put the passenger side going into town
    I agree with your thoughts completely.
    My family has a place on the TN river at Birdsong.
    All of these areas near the river (or Beech River watershed also) are very popular with people from Memphis, Jackson and areas in between.
    Most people in Nashville usually go East unless they don't have the time to go that way for a weekend.

    When my DIL was called into the crime scene, she was told blood was found....I'm thinking that information was first released by local law enforcement and the TBI confirmed it. Now that the TBI is involved with all evidence coming in, they are controlling what information is released, and they are being more close mouthed with that information.

    IMO from having grown up near there and frequenting that area throughout the years, ATV's at that time of the morning or even at night (since they have headlights) is not unusual.
    Neither were gunshots, because I grew up with guns/hunters in the house and on nearby land.

    Something else. If he got rid of her items while driving from her house, that means he would have turned down that dead end road (Easton St.) during prime business hours. On here was stated a concrete plant, and it appears, another building is there also. I just find it hard to believe he would have took that risk at that time. It would have been extremely easy to spot him. Wonder if any of those business have survellance (however u spell it) cameras?

    I agree. How would they get food? They would need to buy food, and get water etc. Someone would have spotted something if a guy and a captor is actually traveling around.
