Holly Bobo, was on her way to school and was going to her carport. She was abducted from her family's property. Her brother Clint had seen her being taken away and thought it was her boyfriend. When he checked further he spotted blood in the area. He phoned 911. The male that abducted Holly was dressed in camouflage clothing. A search is being conducted in the wooded area. There is also a $25,000.00 reward for the return of Holly.  Holly's father told the media that he feels it is someone that Holly knew and they had knowledge of the family's schedule, what time they left the home in the a.m. and felt they had been watching her. There were some things found that belonged to Holly, but the police have not given that out to the media what it was. Also the FBI are involved in this case because it was a kidnapping. My thoughts and prayers go out to Holly's family. She is a very beautiful girl. I don't know how to post her picture here, but maybe someone can do that. Please anyone reading this and know anything about Holly, call your local police department. :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

When I read this, my first thought is that the perp is a 'secret admirer'....someone who has been watching/ stalking Holly for a while.   She is beautiful, and I get scared for some of our lovely women, as sometimes creepy guys are attracted/obsessed with them.

Jobo, I too believe someone was watching what time she left in the morning for school. She is very pretty. It could be someone living in that neighbourhood or someone her brother knows. It also could be someone who is going to the same school as she is, maybe they have tried to date her or something and she rejected them. I know that her brother did see the person and I wonder why there has been no sketch of the kidnapper. One good thing is the FBI is on this case, because she was kidnapped. I do hope that Holly is alive. She could be being held captive somewhere, because they lived in a rural area. They did note that they found some articles that belonged to her, but did not disclose what they were. My hopes and prayers go to Holly and I hope she is safe. A very devastating thing to happen to this family. :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

Cinnsticks, thanks for that news. That is really interesting and I think there is a connection here. Following the news report last nite, the searchers and police do not believe they left the woods. It is a heavily wooded area and the police do not feel they are out of that area. However, the police and officials feel it is very dangerous, especially because Holly was only wearing a T shirt and no jacket or warm clothing. So if she was in the woods on these cold nights, it would be extremely hard for her to survive. God bless her and I hope that she survives this maniac that has abducted her. And the link by Csticks, I do believe this could be the same perp that took Holly. What a sick, sick world this is when someone can't walk out of their home in the morning and be safe. Please someone find Holly and bring her home. :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

I just wonder how this person could live in the woods with no heat. Or did he have a vehicle somewhere, an ATV that he had stashed and just quickly took Holly to a residence. I wonder are the police asking the public's help if they know anyone who is an active woodsman who is capable of living in the woods for long periods of time. And another thought I had is, why didn't her brother just take of running and catch up to them. I don't know why he just didn't take off running. I guess he has been beating himself up over that at this time. The only way that Holly could survive is if she was in a residence. It is unlikely that she would survive if she wasn't, because she was not clothed appropriately for cold weather. And the perp could be someone who was in the military with extensive knowledge of survival techniques, like a Navy Seal. This sounds to me like it maybe someone like that who has abducted Holly. I pray for Holly's safe return. :'( :'( :'( :'(

This extra reward money, I hope will cause someone to come forward. I believe that someone may know who the person is that took Holly. They may have an idea of a friend or someone they have not seen around for a while, who they may think would be capable of this type of crime. I just hope it brings someone forward with information in regard to Holly's whereabouts. After reading some comments on that site, I was very upset by them. A beautiful girl is missing and to hell with who put up the money, if this can find her and bring information forward and bring her home safe, it will be worth every red penny, even if it is the state's money. :( :( :( :( :( :(

Holly is still missing cape. I feel there are some strange circumstances surrounding Holly's disappearance. She was just preparing to leave for nursing school that morning. That would indicate that she was leaving to live in a different town. Also her brother Clint told police he saw a man dressed in camouflage force her into the woods behind the family home. I wonder if this was someone who had been watching Holly, possibly infatuated with her.

PARSONS, Tenn. - After more than 1,000 leads, there is still no sign of Holly Bobo. Friday marked one month to the day since her disappearance.

The TBI believes she was abducted from the back of her home. TBI agent John Mehr is in charge of the case.

Mehr said people who have good information about April 13 or the day Bobo disappeared are finally beginning to call.

In the meantime, the young woman's disappearance has changed the way people live their lives in Decatur County and the surrounding area.

When you travel to Decatur County there are tributes and memorials to Holly Bobo everywhere.


At a local fabric store in Parsons more Holly Bobo t-shirts are for sale. They are pink, which was Holly's favorite color.

Kristi Pearcy and Kim Carrington said the organized searches are gone, but not the will to find her.
"Everyday even when I drive to work I look in the woods is there any sign?  What if I just saw her?" Pearcy said.

Kim Carrington has also searched for Holly.

"There's not one day that somebody doesn't come in here and ask.  Every topic of conversation that comes through here is about Holly," said Carrington.

Pearcy and Carrington said they think about Holly everyday.

"Any part of the day you just wonder is she okay?  Will this be the day that we find her?" Pearcy asked.

Bobo has been missing since the morning of April 13th. As she got ready to leave for nursing school someone abducted her.

Her brother Clint told police he saw a man dressed in camouflage force her into the woods behind the family home. Bobo was wearing a pink shirt and blue jeans.

"You know investigators are frustrated, the family is frustrated, the community is frustrated that we haven't brought Holly back home to her mom and dad," Family spokesman Kevin Bromley said.

The Bobo family attended Bible study at their church in Darden Wednesday night.

Pastor Don Franks said he didn't realize the pain felt by the families of missing children. Pastor Franks said his grandson was killed three weeks before Holly disappeared, but that pales in comparison to Bobo family's tragedy.

"Our experience is nothing to compare with the anguish and hurt the Bobo's are going through as a family," Franks said.

Agent Mehr said the TBI is still waiting for the one clue that could help them solve the case.

Police have been busy checking the usual suspects, including registered sex offenders. There are several who live in the area.

There are no longer organized searches for Bobo by volunteers. The TBI said right now there's no reason to search, but if they do law enforcement will handle it.

There is still an $80,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the abduction of Holly Bobo.

debbieC, I really thought that she was just going to school which she did every day. I did not realize that she was going away to school somewhere. Why were her family members not outside, especially if she was going away to live??? Maybe this is a misunderstanding.  I thought she was going to be returning home every night. Someone must know where Holly is????

Where is Holly? One year passes since nursing student, 20, was snatched from home

By Daily Mail Reporter
PUBLISHED: 20:11 GMT, 13 April 2012 | UPDATED: 20:28 GMT, 13 April 2012


It has been one year since nursing student Holly Bobo went missing from her home - and police say they still get information on the case daily.
Yet there is still no sign of the 20-year-old who was last seen at her home in Darden, Tennessee on April 13, 2011.

Her brother Clint, 25, told police he had seen her being led into the woods by an unknown man wearing hunting camouflage at around 7.30 a.m.

District Attorney Hansel McCadams told The Jackson Sun the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation regularly receives information on the case.
'Holly's investigation is still ongoing,' he said.

I wonder if the nursing connection is just a coincidence ....
But there are a couple of canadian (ontario) cases where women have gone missing, were attacked or murdered, and "nursing" was discussed on various threads as a possible link between them. Off the top of my head: Sonia Varaschin is a woman who was missing and found murdered in Orangeville, Ontario, and had been a nurse; Shelley Loder was attacked and almost died in her photo studio very close to where Varaschin was found (or to where she lived; I can't remember) and, while Loder was not a nurse, her husband, I believe, was a nursing student. There are some other connections to missing/murdered women and nursing I can't remember off-hand, but I will look them up later.
I can only imagine how awful it must be, all this time later, to still have no news of Holly. My thoughts and best wishes go to her family and friends.

I always found that weird too. The connection between nursing and missing/murdered woman. Alexandra Wiwcharuk would be another here in Canada.

We have an eye witness (her brother) who saw that man take her into the woods alive. She must be being held captive. Remember Elizabeth Smart? They survived a long time in the woods...
