Paragliders join search for missing nursing student
JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) - A group of paragliders has joined in the search effort to find clues in the case of a 20-year-old nursing student who is believed to have been abducted from her West Tennessee home in April.
Dave Dubin, founder of Parasearchers.com, said a team of about five pilots searched on Sunday and again on Monday morning around the home of Holly Bobo near Parsons, Tenn., about 100 miles northeast of Memphis.
Dubin told WJHL-TV in Johnson City that through power paragliding they can get clear aerial views of the woods where Bobo was last seen. Bobo vanished April 13 after her brother said he saw her being led into woods by a man dressed in hunting camouflage.
Dubin said the group plans to resume searching later this week.
