"Its great when everybody can come together and pray and do what needs to be done to bring Holly home," said supporter Kevin Medlin.

Friday at the Corinth Baptist Church hundreds of supporters and motorcyclists came out to remember Bobo for the Bring Holly Home Ride and prayer vigil .

Holly's mother and father spoke out urging anyone with information about their daughter's disappearance to come forward.

Holly's mother, Karen Bobo said, "It is possible that someone does have a new tip or knowledge extremely important to the case that has not yet been called in for some reason did not reach the TBI tip line."

"We know a year seems long to many of you, but for us holly's family each day seem like eternity with out holly so please call the TBI tip line," said Holly's father, Dana Bobo.

The 21 year old nursing student went missing April 13, 2011 and was last seen being taken by a man dressed in camouflage in to the woods near her home.
