Can someone please clarify this for me:
The brother said he heard a scream and looked out the window and saw Holly being led or forced into the woods? I'm sorry but if this is true wouldn't you run out there and see what was going on? I have 5 sisters and if this happened I would be running out to make sure everything was ok.

There were reports that a neighbor heard a scream, but TBI agent Helm (I believe that's her name) said she was unaware of the neighbor hearing anything or calling 911.
JMOIf you possibly can please remember to keep the children at St Jude here in Memphis in your thoughts and prayers! NO child should die in the dawn of life....

Bilas - He did not hear a scream, the neighbor did. He saw Holly being led into the woods...initial reports of "dragged" were incorrect....He did not get a good look at the person and actually thought her boyfriend was leading her into the woods. Locals on here have confirmed that it is turkey hunting season in TN which is both a popular activity and something undertaken in the early morning. Therefore, they assured us that it would be a pretty normal thing if your boyfriend had been hunting at that time of morning and was still wearing his camo and wanted to show you his prize....we're thinking Clint assumed something along those lines. It was only later when he went outside and saw that her car was still there and noticed blood that he became alarmed according to reports. There is confusion about who called 911. The brother did, but also someone else. There have been accounts that after the neighbor heard the scream she called the mother at the school who called him and told him to check on Holly....other reports seem to suggest he went outside later on his own, noticed these things and then called 911 and also called his mom....it is known that someone called the mom because she left the school and LE stated she was there when they arrived.

Thanks for clearing that up for me.

an interesting description of a suspect in local home invasions in this article link:
Police Looking For Burglary Suspect
Investigators are searching for a suspect they say is breaking into area homes in broad daylight.
The suspect is described as a white male, around five feet, eleven inches to six feet tall with a stocky build, ruddy complexion and sandy brown hair.
Sheriff Wyatt says the suspect is also being linked to a number of home invasions in Henderson County

Thanks grandmaj Wish I knew how to find records, I wonder if Holly surprised him while he was going to break in?

That being said, it's a huge jump between carefully entering someone's house (while your truck is outside), stealing jewelry and carefully sealing the home back up to the HB case.
It appears to be a planned abduction without an apparent immediate mode of escape. You would think the home intrusion perp (who liked nobody to be at home) would at least assume one person is at home if they came upon the house with at least one car still at the residence. The Bobo's had no close-able garage to my knowledge._____________________________________

Oh, and that article from the Examiner said this J Nickell's claimed he lived 3 houses down from Holly's house. I wonder if there's an empty home there? Aren't there several houses empty around Holly's? Could he also be breaking in homes and robbing people? Maybe that's his employment. LOL
I wish I hadn't read that dumb article now. I'll be better by the morning I'm sure.

The comment was made in the recent news article that Nickel's home was about 22 miles from the Bobo's home by the road...but could be reached within 15 minutes through the woods, by a person familiar with the area. That gave me pause.
Surely LE has walked through the woods in Nickel's direction.

I was new to WS before the HB case, but have now read through a good bit of the missing persons cases here. I noticed that in a good many of them, the reports usually contain:
1. where they were last seen and who saw them last
2. what they were last wearing
3. belongings they might have had with them. A great percentage of cases state whether they had their cell phones/wallets/ID/credit cards with them and whether there was any activity on these items after the last sighting
4. mood/personality of the victim. I notice cases specifying that the person's last FB status, tweet, or other mood indicator is shared, along with any personal interaction with the persons last seeing them, such as "She left in a good mood just like every morning." or "The victim was last seen arguing with a family member/friend, etc."
Is it common for cases to only cover 1 & 2, and leave out details regarding 3 & 4? I'm not finding many cases that haven't reported that the missing person's cell phone location. Of course, I realize LE might have very good reasons to contain said information, but I just wish we knew if she had been recently distraught, what her last FB/social networking statements were, and what belongings she is thought to have with her.

I wish LE would say he was ruled out for sure, in some way. He seems to meet the criteria pretty well, also the "description" issued. But it's not good news at all, if he is the one.Just my opinion, of course.
