As day number six in the search for Holly Bobo drew to a close Monday, volunteers and community members in the small west Tennessee community said they are relying on faith as investigators continue to look for Bobo and the person responsible for abducting her. “We do not have a person of interest at this time,” said TBI Director Mark Gwyn. In Parsons, pink ribbons decorate downtown businesses. The owner of one clothing store pinned a pink ribbon on her shirt as a symbol of hope as the days drag on. “I just do not know of anybody that walks in my door that is not saying, ‘what have you heard? Is there any good news,” said Business Owner Donna Box. With a daughter just a couple of years old than Bobo, Box said watching the investigation unfold is heartbreaking. “I just cannot imagine what the family is going through,” said Box. To make things worse, investigators believe the suspect has to be from the area in order to navigate through the terrain. “We feel like the person is right here, in the community,” said Gwyn. “It is sad, but there are a lot of bad people in the world,” said Box. “I cannot imagine a sweet, beautiful girl like Holly would have hurt anybody. She just does not deserve this.” Putting her faith in God, Box said she looks forward to the day Bobo returns home. “Whoever has her is going to bring her home safe and this is all going to come to an end. I hope very soon,” Box said. On Monday, Governor Bill Haslam posted a $50,000 reward for information leading to the capture and conviction of Bobo’s captor. It brings the total amount of award money to $75,000. If you have information that could help investigators, contact the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.
