Whitney Duncan’s Cousin Kidnapped During Break-In
An Amber Alert has been issued for 20-year-old Holly Bobo, the cousin of 'When I Said I Would' country singer Whitney Duncan. Bobo was dragged from her Decatur County, Tenn. home, which is about 100 miles outside of Memphis, yesterday morning by a man dressed in camouflage.
"My cousin Holly was kidnapped this morning. Please pray for her & our family," Duncan, a former 'Nashville Star' finalist, posted to her Facebook page. "This is really sad & shocking."
According to reports, Bobo's older brother saw the man pull his sister, a University of Tennessee Martin Nursing student, into the woods after invading their home around 7:30AM on April 13.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has called on the Violent Crime Response Team for help, and an Amber Alert has been issued for Bobo. Bobo, pictured below, is 5-foot-3-inches tall, 110 pounds and has shoulder-length blonde hair. Officials have urged that anyone with information about Bobo's whereabouts should contact the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.
"Lord have mercy," Duncan posted to Twitter yesterday. "I feel like I'm walking in a nightmare. Thanks for all the prayers and please keep spreading the Amber Alert."
