PARSONS, Tenn. -
It has been nearly eight months since Holly Bobo went missing from her home outside Parsons in rural Decatur County yet the community continues to support the ongoing search efforts and provide support for Bobo's family.
Kevin Bromley, spokesperson for the Bobos', told Nashville News 2 while he hasn't heard of any new leads in the case, investigators are still doing all they can to find the missing nursing student.
"It's by far not a cold case by any means," he said during a phone interview Thursday. "[Investigators are] working, they have a task force that is working specifically on Holly's case and we believe there are things that they are working on and we're hoping that we'll have a conclusion, hopefully, by the end of the year."
He continued, "We live in a wonderful community here in Parsons and in Decatur County and they just have a way of making the family feel at comfort and have some peace about this situation and know that they're supporting them and will help them in anyway they can."
Pink ribbons were placed through out the town shortly after her disappearance from her home in mid-April.
"The Bobos' are in a wonderful community and there is a lot of support still in Decatur County and in the Parsons area. They are having events periodically for Holly and the ribbons that were there in the beginning are still there [in the community] and they get replaced often," Bromley said.
Bobo, turned 21 on October 12. Her family held a birthday observance and a local school released balloons in her honor.
She is described as five foot, three inches tall, weighing 110 pounds with blue eyes and shoulder-length blonde hair.
She was last seen wearing a pink shirt, blue jeans and black flip flops.
An $85,000 reward is being offered for information leading to her location.
Anyone with information is urged to contact the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.
