Reward Increased To $250,000 In Holly Bobo Case

PARSONS, Tenn.- New information was released Wednesday, regarding the disappearance of nursing student Holly Bobo.

On Tuesday, a convicted violent sex offender who lives just miles from the Bobo home was arrested by police. So far the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has refused to comment on if 53-year-old Terry Britt was a suspect or connected with the Holly Bobo case.

Since the arrest an anonymous donor has upped the reward in the case to a quarter million dollars. Residents said that since Holly went missing last year, many in the community questions if Britt was involved.

"They're still wondering if there is a connection. If there is something the TBI may know that we still don't know. I'm sure there is a lot they do know, but we don't know," said a Parsons Resident.

Although it's been nearly a year since Holly went missing from her Parsons' home, the pictures and ribbons posted around town continue to remind residents that the search continues.

Terry Britt was recently arrested for aggravated kidnapping sexual battery and attempted rape in Madison County. Many of his neighbors said they knew he was a registered sex offender and his recent arrest has made them wonder if he knew or was connected to Bobo's disappearance.

"We thought it because I said; they searched the land from across where I live. That's the first thing I thought. Maybe he had something to do with Holly going missing," said Judith Hall.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has not said if Britt was a suspect in Bobo's disappearance.

The recent news of an increase in the reward for information leading to Bobo's safe return has local residents hopeful of some good new soon.

NewsChannel5 reached out to Holly Bobo's parents. Her mother said they have heard about Britt's arrest, but had no information if he was connected to her daughter's case.
