CHESTER COUNTY, Tenn. -- Holly Bobo's family is now asking anyone with information about the location of Holly's body to come forward.

The Bobo family sat in on Zach Adam's court appearance on Tuesday, where he waived his right to a preliminary hearing about his alleged assault on a Chester county corrections officer.

"It's very difficult on them. Anytime there's additional activity on the case, of course that makes it more difficult. It's a very emotional time for the family," Pastor Don Franks, the family's spokesperson, said.

Franks said the family is now asking anyone to come forward and help lay Holly to rest.

"We're very hopeful for the sake of decency someone will talk. This family desperately needs to find the body of Holly Bobo. This family desperately needs closure," he said.

Franks said the cash reward held by law enforcement still stands for anyone who speaks up and helps the family find her body. He also said he believes whoever speaks up could face a lesser charge.

"There was a deadline set, and if somebody wants to cut a plea deal, they need to begin talking because that deadline is approaching," Franks said.

Bobo disappeared from her Decatur County home in April 2011.

So far, two men, Zach Adams and Jason Autry, have been indicted in connection with her death and disappearance.
