DA Asks TBI To Look Into Possible Charges Against Advocacy Group

Posted: Updated:

DECATUR COUNTY, Tenn. - Members of an advocacy group investigating the Holly Bobo case could find themselves behind bars for allegedly making up evidence in the high profile missing persons case.

Decatur County's District Attorney has asked the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation to look into the possibility of criminal charges against members of the group "Without Warning."

The group is led by private investigator Sheila Wysocki.

The TBI said Wysocki and her team presented information they knew was false to another Nashville TV station. The information included a map showing the route supposedly taken by Bobo's abductor.

That route was based on cell phone records-- information which the TBI said the group knew was inaccurate.

"We don't know how they got that information as far as where the abductor went. They are basing it on these false cell phone records and evidence recovered along certain roads," said TBI Spokeswoman Kristin Helm on Friday.

Bobo was last seen April 13, 2011, when her brother told authorities he saw a man in hunting clothes leading the 20-year-old into the woods around the family home.

The search has reached far outside the small towns of West Tennessee. Fliers and cards with Bobo's picture and description can still be found throughout Tennessee and in neighboring states. Truckers with cross-country routes have affixed decals with Bobo's picture on them on their vehicles.

Bobo's family spoke out about the TBI's statements earlier this week, saying they felt they had been mocked, and the recent developments have taken away from the fact that Holly is still missing.

They have started an online petition to ask Governor Haslam to create a missing persons task force. To sign to the petition, go to Moveon.org.

Anyone with information about Holly's case is urged to call 1-800-TBI-FIND. The reward money is now up to $185,000.
