Search Still on for Holly Bobo, Whitney Duncan’s Missing Cousin
It has been nearly three months since the disappearance of 20-year-old Holly Bobo, who was taken from her home in Parsons, Tenn. To keep her fresh on America’s minds, more than 100 bikers rode during the ‘Helping Holly Run’ benefit on Saturday, June 25, in hopes of the return of Bobo, the cousin of country singer Whitney Duncan.
The past 10 weeks since she was taken have been hard on the small town, located roughly 100 miles west of Nashville, as well as Bobo’s loving family who still are begging for her safe return.
“To whoever has our daughter, I’m asking you to please do the right thing, and let her come home,” Bobo’s mother, Karen Bobo, pleads.
“It’s a small town,” adds Parsons resident Keith Duke. “Everybody knows everybody. It’s personal, the fact this happened in our community.”
The ‘Helping Holly Run’ bike ride benefit, hosted by the Tennessee River Riders Association, was to raise money for the Bobo family while continuing to keep the missing Bobo’s memory fresh in everyone’s minds and hearts.
Besides the motorcycle ride, volunteers were also on hand auctioning off several items, including a one-of-a-kind helmet that reads “Praying for Holly” on the back.
“Holly, we love you, and we miss you,” her mother sobbed during the event. “We will never stop looking for you until we have you back home safely with us.”
Authorities have said they believe Bobo was abducted on April 13 outside her home between 7:40 and 8:00AM by a man who wore camouflage. Bobo has long, blond hair. She is 5-foot 3-inches tall and weighs about 110 pounds. She was last seen wearing a pink T-shirt and light blue jeans.
Anyone with any information on the abduction is asked to call the Decatur County Sheriff’s Office at (731) 852-3703 or (800) TBI-FIND.
