Attempted Abduction Could Be Related To Holly Bobo Case

Posted: Updated:

CENTERVILLE, Tenn. - Police are now looking into an attempted abduction in Hickman County and if it might be connected to the Holly Bobo case.

Heather Sullivan told police about three months ago, a man grabbed her as she walked out of her Centerville home.

She dropped a lamp, and the man took off.

Centerville is about 45-miles from Bobo's hometown of Parsons in Decatur County.

The 20-year-old nursing student hasn't been seen since last Wednesday. Her brother told authorities that he saw a man dressed in camouflage walk her into the woods.

Since then, hundreds of volunteers have scoured the area surrounding her home, as well as Natchez Trace State Park in neighboring Henderson County. Her lunchbox was found about eight miles from her home on Gooch Road last week.

The TBI has also analyzed blood found on the carport of her home, but has not released who it belongs to.

The community held a candlelight vigil on Wednesday night to mark the one-week anniversary of her disappearance. Strong storms pushed through, knocking out the power—but the vigil went on by candlelight as the attendees sang "Amazing Grace".

Police have not identified any suspects in the case.
