Holly Bobo Still Missing One Month Later

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.
