Paragliders Join Search For Holly Bobo

Posted:

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) - A group of paragliders has joined in the search effort to find clues in the case of a 20-year-old nursing student who is believed to have been abducted from her West Tennessee home in April.

Dave Dubin, founder of Parasearchers.com, said a team of about five pilots searched on Sunday and again on Monday morning around the home of Holly Bobo near Parsons, about 100 miles northeast of Memphis.

Dubin told WJHL-TV in Johnson City that through power paragliding they can get clear aerial views of the woods where Bobo was last seen. Bobo vanished April 13 after her brother said he saw her being led into woods by a man dressed in hunting camouflage.

Dubin said the group plans to resume searching later this week.

The TBI is investigating and said they have gotten a number of leads but so far, nothing has panned out.

There is an $85,000 reward for information leading to Holly Bobo's location and the arrest of her abductor.

Anyone with information is asked to call the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.
