PARSONS, Tenn. -

A motorcycle ride was held Saturday in Decatur County in support of Holly Bobo's family. The 20-year-old nursing student went missing in 2011 and is now presumed dead.

Pink Ribbons and signs of encouragement painted the streets from Lexington to Parsons. More than 100 people took part in the ride.

"The support that the town and the community have for Holly is just unbelievable," supporter Casey Vaughn told News 2, adding, "On the way up here, on the road, there were people pulled over and honking and waving, thumbs up, hats off, hands on their chest… it was just incredible."

Where there have been rides before for Holly, Saturday was the first since charges were handed down against her accused killer, Zachary Adams.

The ride, put together just one day in advance, brought supporters, some from surrounding states, and many complete strangers.

Supporter Denise Hart said, "I helped search.  I helped serve food.  I spent time down here just like everyone else did.  I didn't know her but the love from everybody in the community just brought everybody together.  She is not just the Bobos.  She belongs to all of us.  She will forever have a place in my heart."

The ride ended in a circle, hands gripped tightly in prayer from a group that now wants justice.

Adams, 29, is charged with aggravated kidnapping and first degree murder in the case. He remains behind bars without bond.

The TBI searched his home in Holladay just over a week ago.

The agency did not say what they found that led to the charges and there has been no indication investigators have found Bobo's body.

Adams will be arraigned in Decatur County Tuesday morning.

The district attorney has made the case eligible for the death penalty.

The TBI says their investigation is not over and anyone with information is urged to call 1-800-TBI-FIND.
