PARSONS, Tenn. – Strong to severe storms moving across Tennessee will likely affect the search for a woman who was last seen being dragged from her home in Decatur County two days ago by a man wearing camouflage.

Heavy rain, hail, wind and possibly tornadoes are forecasted for the area later about 100 miles west of Nashville midday Friday through the afternoon.

Decatur County Sheriff Roy Wyatt said searchers would wait and see how that would affect efforts to find 20-year-old Holly Bobo.

He added that authorities do not have any suspects.

Bobo, a nursing student, has been missing since Wednesday morning.  Her disappearance has been classified as an abduction.

Bobo's brother told authorities he saw a man wearing camouflage drag her toward the woods from her home in Darden Wednesday morning.

Several law enforcement agencies and hundreds of volunteers have searched the surrounding woods and fields since, having even searched rugged terrain with trees and brush so thick that a search dog had to be carried by its handler. 

During a public and very emotional plea for their daughter's safe return Thursday afternoon, Bobo's father said he believes she was abducted by someone who knew the family's daily routine.

Her mother, Karen Bobo, tearfully pleaded, "Please try to get home to us and if anybody knows anything about her please, please help us find her."

Investigators said they will continue to actively search for Bobo until there is a solid reason to believe that a continued search effort would not be useful.

Family, friends and volunteers are also wearing pink ribbons as a sign of hope for Bobo's safe return.

The community is also offering a $25,000 reward for information.
