DARDEN, TN (abc24.com) - A new search for Holly Bobo, 15 months after her disappearance. Bobo was abducted outside her Decatur County home in April of last year. Despite a $250,000 reward there are still no signs of the missing nursing student.
Over 15 months not much changed in the quiet town of Parsons. The pink bows have faded in the sun, but the passion to find Holly hasn't. Holly's pastor, Don Franks says, "As long as it takes to find Holly that's what we're determined to do, we're not giving up."
Franks knew Holly her whole life and says more than a year with no answers is devastating on the community and her family. Franks says, "They get up every morning with renewed hope, this will be the day we find Holly." Franks hopes Saturday's that day.
"We're looking for clues, new information, her personally," he says. He's hoping more than 200 people join a thorough search organized by the Community United Effort center. This will be the North Carolina based group's third time assisting a search for Holly. The reason? "I wish I could say it was new developments, but it's not," Franks says. It's a town's need for answers, a dedication that won't fade and a prayer that Holly's still alive. "We're simply not giving up," says Franks, "We're as determined now as ever to find out what happened to Holly Bobo."
You must be 18 or older to help the search efforts on Saturday. The search will begin at 7 a.m. at the Corinth Baptist Church in Darden, TN. If you're interested in helping, you're asked to contact the church.
