Holly Bobo/DCI Next week will mark the two-month anniversary of the disappearance of Holly Bobo, the young nursing student abducted in rural Tennessee. Bobo, 20, was last seen April 13 being led into the woods near her home by a camouflaged individual.
Despite national media coverage, extensive police searches and investigation, and an $80,000 reward, neither Bobo nor her abductor have been found. Police are no longer actively searching for her and have no suspects, though the investigation remains open and ongoing.
The case was plagued by misinformation from the start, when early reports suggested that Bobo's brother Clint might have changed his eyewitness story from saying that he saw Holly being dragged into the woods; it was later clarified that Holly had in fact walked with her abductor either willingly or by force.
This false lead led to rumors that Clint Bobo was a suspect in Holly's disappearance, followed by country music singer Whitney Duncan defending him in a April 17 Twitter statement: "My cousin Clint, Holly's brother, is NOT a suspect & I'm sick of people saying that he is. He has been cleared for good reason. Shut up." That, too, was misinformation: In fact according to police, no one has been "cleared" in the case, including Clint - though he was never called a suspect in the first place.
