TN - Holly Bobo, 20 yrs old, Decatur County, 13 April 2011

http://www.wbbjtv.com/news/local/Bre...119769824.html

"20 year old Holly Bobo was taken from her Swan Johnson road home just after 7:30 this morning. Authorities say Bobo is around 5 foot three with long blond hair. Her abductor is described as a white man."

I hope someone with better posting skills will help get info on here. Someone from the area posted it on facebook and I found these links.

What a beautiful young lady. My prayers are with her and her family.

Here is Holly's FB; you can tell by some of her friend's posts that this is hers.

I can't understand what I read about she last seen by a family member being dragged off toward the woods...why wouldn't they have followed, or done something at the time?

This article says it was her 25 yr old brother that saw her being dragged off.

"TBI said Bobo's brother was inside the house and the kidnapping was outside. A spokesman would not give more details on what the brother told them."

Holly Bobo was in "fear for her life" when she walked into woods with man, say cops

Investigators now say the brother of missing Tennessee nursing student Holly Bobo did not see her being dragged from her home, and that they believe the 20-year-old was afraid for her life when she walked into the woods near her home with a man.

Listing by the FBI of the ten most sought after missing people list not only Holly Lynn Bobo (4-13-11) of TN but also Amber Elizabeth Cates (4-11-2004). They did not live far from one another, both were college age, and both look like sisters in the FBI photos. Are there other young ladies missing or abducted from this area?

The info here came from LE & news media. it was a mess but this same information is everywhere and trust me, it's a lot more accurate here.

Even NG's people (Mike Brooks, Levi Page) were passing on the same information as on this thread....because thats what the media & LE were at first telling everyone.

I'm still hoping for a miracle for Holly

I like the way Isabelle doesn't mess around spreading rumors, but tries to get information directly from LE.

http://www.examiner.com/missing-pers...alerts_article

Quote from article:
Quote:
On Monday Kristen Helm, spokeswoman for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI), responded to this Examiner.com news writer's email saying, "To reiterate what the Director [of TBI] said, no one has been ruled out at this time.

“However, the focus of law enforcement developing a suspect is outside immediate friends and family.

"Both Clint and Drew have been helpful and cooperative throughout the investigation. Clint, is being treated as an eye witness at this time,” Helm said.

Helm told FoxNews.com Monday, “We’re trying to develop a person of interest who maybe missed work or missed an appointment unexpectedly that day.”
This case has been interesting to say the least. I think the hardest part is that there hasn't been a "spokesperson" from LE giving updates. Therefore, rumors and speculation have ran rampant. Watching the mother during the family portion of the press conference was difficult. This is how I would expect a grieving mother to act (not like some of the other mothers out there right now - Billie Dunn, Terri Horman). So very sad!

As the search for Holly Bobo moves into day 6 the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations made a few announcements Monday: (1)They need more volunteers to come search Tuesday; (2) this is not a hoax; (3) they want people in the community to think about anything peculiar that happened since Holly went missing; and (4) the governor has tripled the reward amount.

During Monday’s press conference TBI Director Mark Gwyn announced that Governor Bill Haslam has increased the reward for information on the whereabouts of Holly Bobo to $75,000.

Gwyn said as of Monday there is no person of interest in the case.
Quote:
Investigators went door-to-door asking neighbors near Holly’s home if they saw anything the day she disappeared, Gwyn told reporters Monday afternoon. Another 30 leads came in Monday, bringing the total of leads to about 280, he said.

THP: "New Tactics" in Holly Bobo Search
