Holly Bobo Still Missing, Reward for Safe Return Raised to $250K
Holly Bobo's family is still hopeful that they will find her alive. The now 21-year-old nursing student -- who's a cousin of country singer Whitney Duncan -- was kidnapped from outside of her Decatur County, Tenn. home last April as she was preparing to leave for school. As no significant strides have been made in the case since her disappearance, the Bobo family has raised the reward money from $85,000 to $250,000 and are anxious that the incentive will help bring her home.
Kevin Bromley, a spokesperson for the family of the missing girl, said Wednesday that the source of the nearly $200k additional funds will remain private, though a rep for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation did clarify that the money is not from law enforcement.
Information about the case has been widespread thanks to Holly Bobo's country music-singing cousin. Duncan, who appeared on 'Survivor: South Pacific' last season, first spoke out about the ordeal on the day of the kidnapping and has maintained her status as a public figure in the case since.
Bobo was last seen on the morning of April 13 by her brother, who watched her be brought into the woods by an unidentified man in camouflage. She is 5 ft., 3 in. tall and was 110 pounds with shoulder-length blonde hair at the time of her disappearance. Anyone who might have information concerning Holly Bobo’s whereabouts is urged to call the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.
