DECATURVILLE, Tenn. -
More than 100 people took part in a prayer vigil and rally to honor Holly Bobo on Saturday.
The vigil began at Noon at the Corinth Baptist Church in Darden, Tenn.
Bobo's mother, father and brother also joined the circle of prayer and were embraced with hugs from supporters.
Pastor Don Franks said many have been gathering outside the small church for the past three years, making Saturday feel more like a reunion.
"We've been praying today for the family. We've been praying for the community as it goes through an adjustment as well," Franks told News 2.
The community has rallied behind the Bobo family since Holly disappeared. They plan to continue their support to the end.
"I think that it keeps this case fresh in the minds of people and more importantly in the justice system, and I think it does send a strong message. They want to see a fair trial take place and justice served," Sheriff Brian Duke said.
The prayer vigil was followed by a "Justice for Holly" rally at 1:30 p.m. in Decaturville with cars decorated in Bobo's honor.
Zach Adams, 29, has been charged with Bobo's kidnapping and murder.
He is scheduled to make another court appearance on April 9.
