PARSONS, Tenn. – The family of a missing Tennessee nursing student unveiled a decal Tuesday they hope will help bring their missing loved one home.
Twenty-year-old Holly Bobo vanished April 13 from her home in Parsons, about 100 miles southwest of Nashville. She was last seen being led into woods outside the home by a man dressed in camouflage.
Tuesday, Kevin Bromley, spokesperson for the Bobo family, unveiled a decal at C&P Leasing in Parsons. The company's semi-trucks travel around the country and the decals will be placed on the back of their trailers.
The two feet by three feet decal reads, "Help!!! Please Bring Me Home!" and features a never before seen photo of Bobo.
The sticker also asks anyone with information on her whereabouts to call the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation at 1-800-TBI-FIND.
Family friend and neighbor D-Lynn Burton came up the idea for the decals of Bobo's to be placed on the back of trucks.
"I will be taking them myself and placing them to make sure they are going on big trucks that actually travel as far as I can get somebody," she said.
Burton continued, "We just wanted her natural look and face out there for everybody to see."
Kyla Whitsitt is just one of many who purchased the decals to be donated to trucking companies.
"That is our main objective to get her face out there, her story out there, her info out there so people might see her and recognize her," she said.
Earlier this week, Bobo's mother Karen told Nashville's News 2 life gets harder every day but the family has to keep believing and hoping for the best.
The family said they hand out fliers and talk to people about the case every day. Bobo's father, Dana Bobo, said the search for his daughter will keep going no matter how long it takes.
There is an $85,000 reward for information leading to Bobo's location.
Anyone with information is asked to call TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND or the Decatur County Sheriff's Office at 731-852-3714.
