I agree, they need to get the facts/rumors cleared up before they report anything.

Anyone think he's got her stashed in his house, basement garage??

With Hailey Dunn they finally searched every home in town.
Maybe that is what they need to do with Holly

I think that would be an important task to do as well.

However, if this car found that was later retracted in the media is involved, then why was it where it was yesterday? Which leads me to believe he doesn't have her stashed in a house.

Scout if this is an off-the-grid person then he could have spotted Holly at any point.
These people move around a lot and do come into town to buy some supplies.
He could have been staying somewhere near her house throughout the winter months and her family might be completely unaware of him.
You are probably right and statistics support your theory that this is someone that is in someway familiar with Holly.
My off-the-grid theory is just an attempt to figure out why she has been missing since Wednesday and has not been found.
If this were a "hot" abduction by someone known in the community, they would have been missed and reported by now IMO.
If this were a registered offender or someone with a criminal record, they would have been questioned and would at least be accounted for.
Just my thoughts and I just have a feeling Holly is alive and is being kept as a partner.

It's getting ridiculous.

However, I think because it is such a small town they aren't giving much info up and the info that has been put out there has been perhaps erroneous for a reason. Or just bad reporting

I agree but I think some of the rumors/facts are being allowed to circulate to confuse certain people.

Regarding the huge turnout of volunteers. The impetus for me to start posting on sleuthing sites was the case of Dru Sjodin. An incredible turnout of people searching for her. Volunteers in the field were coordinating their efforts with those us posting on-line. Of course they couldn't reveal everything. But they did give us a idea of what the scene is like.

BTW, if you don't know this case. Dru was a beautiful blond coed who was abducted from a mall parking lot in N.D. and murdered by a level 3 sex offender who had been returned to the community.

further thoughts: an off-the-grid (or rather) unregistered sex offender

Good point! Never been caught thus unregistered....curiouser and curiouser.
I am headed that way for a family get together this afternoon.
I hope we get some good news.
Brother who was in the woods overnight in that area with buddies for early morning hunting reported that it was very quiet except for the sound of helicopters occasionally.

I don't feel good attacking the brother (for his lack of action) but I simply have no other choice if her 'abduction' did gone down the way it's been reported.
I, too, am entertaining rational explanations...and there are some. But, still.

very good article... some highlights I found interesting:

1)she was already in the clinical portion of school working in hospitals

2)she was on the way to campus that morning to take a test

3)brother saw her walking into woods with man in camo but thought it was her boyfriend. When he saw blood outside later he called 911.

I have to think the brother must have passed a lie detector as LE has said they absolutely don't consider him a suspect, or the boyfriend, for that matter.

So now there is no camo? This just gets more absurd and strange by the minute. The reporters and/or law enforcement really ought to get their story straight, because every time they change the story, the brother gets the brunt of the suspicion.

Anyone ever seen a case where last-seens and a boyfriend are quickly cleared publicly by LE - as some sort of strategy - even though LE might not believe they are clear?

Not me. I think we can be certain the brother's been ruled out. As he's the "last seen by" person here, common sense would dictate there's a pretty solid reason he's been ruled out.

The official clearing of the "last seen by" so quickly here is interesting to me. To me, this is telling. This says ... LE likely knows who they are after.

The announcing of the brother being cleared (LE can clear people and not announce it), is also interesting to me. - Strategy of some kind.

Have we heard that there are FBI special teams (CARD) there yet? If not, LE likely knows who they are after.

This is a rural area. A short list of suspects could have been developed and run down ... and if one of them is also missing ... LE likely knows who they are after.


************************************

Random thought:

If Holly is a nursing student, someone feigning "need" of medical assistance for someone who's been injured in the woods - could have asked for her assistance. Someone who knew she'd go with them voluntarily into the woods to help. Lured her.

*********************************************

Brother is sequestered because he's the "last seen by". He may be working with police or FBI, and unavailable for the press. Either way, LE doesn't want brother's actual story out.

********************************************

My fear is murder-suicide. My hope is a sicko-captor.

*********************************************

ALL JMHO. for Holly.

Am trying to find public court documents for Henderson County TN. (looking for possible RO)
So far am only getting pay searches which I know are not allowed, nor am I going to pay.
From other cases I know these are public info, but seems in TN they want you to pay for any records. Am I on the wrong track...can someone with experience direct me?

I think LE has reasons for clearing the brother and boyfriend, although it is strange how the brother's story has been reported.
He is 24 and she is 20 if I am correct.
About the same age difference as my brother and I.
I came and went as I liked when I was Holly's age and we lived in a very remote area completely wooded-in.
My big bro is very protective, but at that age if he didn't hear me screaming for help he probably would have thought I was with a friend or boyfriend.
Actually, I switched bf's a lot at her age.
Anyhow, I stayed out of his business and he stayed out of mine.
In rural communities like Holly's and the nearby one I grew up in (which is huge in comparison today) camo clothing is worn year-round and young adults feel safe on their own property.
Someone picked this lady out, and not randomly, IMO.
She is strikingly beautiful and this caught the perp's attention.
I believe she is alive and I also believe that the brother is tornup about this thing.
The obfuscation and confusion is probably on purpose to keep the perp guessing.
And yes I believe he uses a scanner with crystals he inserted so that he can pick up cell phones and all trunked systems. It is illegal to do so, so he probably built it himself.
There is the other possibility that he bought an actual police radio, as they are also available at such events as gun shows, and tuned it himself.
I don't think he is broke. I think he has enough money to live on for quite some time.
Just my thoughts and my opinions.
