    Holly Bobo belongs to all of us. Let's renew our efforts. So many brains who post here on these threads. Patience, intelligence, and diligence required to help solve her disappearance.

    I don't know what we can be doing. We've looked at various RSO's; LE says they are not focusing on anyone in particular including the one in jail now. We are not hearing any info re: pings, or anything else that can be mapped. There are no planned searches for anyone within dirving distance to take part in. We can't discuss anyone whose name has not come up in media and no names have come up. We aren't hearing from the family, learning more about Holly as a person, or about her routine.

    So we are kind of at a loss, as far as I can tell. We can only post when there is something to say, it doesn't mean no one is thinking about her.
    Just my opinion, of course.

    It breaks my heart to read this.

    So many loved ones out there who need answers and all of us would do anything to help them.

    I hear you Clu.... I feel just the fact this thread exists gives a good edge to helping solve her disappearance.
    I also feel that as dedicated as we are to finding her, LE is also. We have to have that faith. And I hope I didn't just blow the new thread lol.
    Thinking positive here. I like King Arthur's mantra that 'Right is Might'.
    Color me stupid or blind if you will but I am feeling positive.

    Just checking in. Wishing there were some news on Holly. She's on my mind and in my heart, like so many others here.

    Hope I didn't blow the margins. I have a program that resets pics for me so let me know if there's a problem. I just love that pic of Holly. <3

    She is definitely an exceptionally beautiful girl. Just like Morgan Harrington.

    Her whole life ahead of her . . .

    I don't know what it is, but I keep hoping that whoever took her has kept her for himself like what happened with Elizabeth Smart. I don't always feel that way and don't really follow gut feelings, but in this case, I have more hope for that than usual.

    I have lived a long time and I am used to weekly updates from investigators on cases that may involve capital crime. If the veil of silence about the Holly Bobo investigation contributes to an arrest pretty soon, then everything will make sense to me. But if this case is still languishing many months from now and the public has been given no more information, I will throw up my hands to the heavens. I maintain (as in my other posts) that this case is eminently solvable and I believe there is a reason why the authorities are so quiet.*

    For me it is simple, when I look at cases such as the Jamison family in Oklahoma or the McStay family in San Ysidro, I can more-or-less figure out what happened. These are not difficult cases to work out. But the Holly Bobo case irks me, because I have so little to work with.
    I totally agree with your thoughts ^above^, Mr Noatak..*

    Anyone here that happens to also follow the Hailey Dunn case in Colorado City, TX knows this exact feeling as well. Unfortunately CCity is very much lacking as well in the as you nicely phrased it, "bird-dogging investigative reporter" field. Many of us have voiced this repeatedly in our posts in Hailey's forum since way back at the end of January(approx. 1 month into Hailey's case)...

    It seems to me the most likeliest of reasons is that we are talking about Tiny Town, USA in both of these cases and until either of these young girls literally vanished into thin air(both from their homes) I'd say there wasnt much need in either town for the type investigative journalist/reporter that we're talking about and tho neither Tiny Town is that far from the bright lights of a big city where there usually is no shortage of these type of take no BS type of reporters that live and breathe the cases they're following and reporting to us the public.. They certainly don't seem to be putting forth the effort to travel these short distances to these small towns and dig in their heels on these two frustrating and sad cases of two beautiful young girls with their entire lives literally ripped from them without warning...

    But why?? As you stated I, too believe that if there were a really good and determined investigative reporter on Hollys case that it's quite likely that we would know more(and I want to reiterate that I am not wanting LE to release info/details that would hinder the case and therefor benefit the perp in the case).. But I know that there is definitely more that we "could" know without it negatively impacting in any way the investigation or the case that one day will be laid out before a jury to decide this monster's fate..

    So, with all of that said(and reiterated) my question is why would out of the many Investigative reporters that are aplenty located on either side of Parsons(Nashville to the east and Memphis to the west)why would not any of these put In that small amount of extra effort to travel this short distance and cover this story(that IMO someone should be pleading to keep Holly's face out there especially in these two major cities that neighbor Parsons on either side).. She very easily could've been taken to either city or thru either of these cities.. Someone could have seen SOMETHING ON THAT WEDNESDAY MORNING OF APRIL 13th!!!!.. But the truth of the matter is *here we are over 1 month out and the vast majority of ppl do not even know that a Holly Bobo even exists. Sad to say but that is the truth of the matter.. Her name has already disappeared from any headlines here in one of those nearest big cities and at this point there extremely rarely is even a 2 sentence or 5 second news blurb about Holly... And the way things are going Holly Bobo will continue just getting a way distant and faint memory for those who first heard her story 1 month ago..

    IMO Holly desperately needs to be kept in the news until her case is solved and I fear that the few of us here at WS that have closely followed since that breaking news of her disappearance will soon be the only ones who even still have Holly on their minds and in their prayers..

    IMO that is just not good enough...


    Posting via mobile so please excuse errors as there is not the same amount of control as I'd have posting from my laptop! Thanks!

    I am not really sure what a reporter constantly calling LE or bashing LE is going to do to help this case.

    I don't assume LE is not trying their best. This case has had much publicity, government support, and LE attention.

    Sometimes it is better to stop badgering LE and let them do their job.
