PARSONS, Tenn. - It's been more than 10 weeks since Holly Bobo disappeared, but Saturday, bikers rode out to make sure Holly Bobo does not disappear from our minds any time soon.

For this small community, the past 10 weeks have been difficult.

"It's a small town," said Keith Duke. "Everybody knows everybody. It's personal the fact this happened in our community."

Holly Bobo is a name everyone knows, but not knowing what happened makes a tough time even more difficult.

"Holly represents the hope of the future. Holly wants to be nurse; we want her to be a nurse," says Mary Beth Duke with the Tennessee River Riders Association.

The search isn't over, but Saturday was about riding out in hopes of rejuvenating hope the 20-year-old will return home safely.

Some 150 bikers took part in the "Helping Holly Run" benefit hosted by the Tennessee River Riders Association. The purpose was to raise money for the Bobo family.

Riding a motorcycle wasn't the only way people could show their support for Holly Bobo.  They could also bid on several auction items, including a one of a kind helmet that reads,
"Praying for Holly" on the back.

Bands played songs, but in the back classroom at Decatur County Middle School, a mother hits notes of emotion that no one should have to play out in their life. 

"To whoever has our daughter, I'm asking you to please do the right thing, and let her come home," said Holly's mother, Karen Bobo.

Things don't get easier for the Bobo family each day their daughter, sister and friend is gone.  It does help that people willingly speak their prayers.

"We want to find Holly, and bring Holly home," said Mary Beth, voicing what everyone wants to see happen.

"And to Holly, we love you, and we miss you, and we will never stop looking for you until we have you back home safely with us," cried Karen.
