Missing nursing student's family continues search each day


PARSONS, Tenn. – The parents of a missing nursing student continues to search for their daughter every day, more than three months after she was last seen.

Twenty-year-old Holly Bobo was last seen on April 13 as she was being led into the woods by a man who was wearing camouflage.

"It seems like it gets harder everyday," mother Karen Bobo said.

Since her disappearance, dozens of agencies and thousands of volunteers have combed the wooded area near her Decatur County home.

"We're not giving up. We won't give up. We will search day and night for her," father Dana Bobo said, adding. "We'll be here looking from now on, however long it takes."

The family told Nashville's News 2 they are encouraging people to leave up the pink ribbons that have lined the streets of the community for the past three months.

The young woman's face has been placed on buttons, flyers, t-shirts and on tractor trailer decals to circulate information on her disappearance nationwide.

In a recent interview with ABC news, Bobo's parents said they said they feel sure their daughter's disappearance was foul play and they would like to see more of an effort to find her.

"As her parents, we would like to see, you know, if there's 10 working on it, we'd like to see 100 working on it. We would like to see a very aggressive process," Karen Bobo said. 

Anyone with information on Bobo's disappearance or whereabouts is urged to contact the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.

An $85,000 reward for the arrest and conviction of her abductor is being offered.
