No. Decatur County Tennessee. The headlines are everywhere. She was seen being drug across the carport at her own home by a man wearing camo and hasn't been seen since. Beautiful girl. Very scary story.

It is so frightening. They are saying she was kidnapped as part of a home invasion. Getting dragged off into the woods...sounds like it must have been someone familiar with the rural area. One article I read said she was a member of Corinth Baptist Church, maybe not in Corinth, MS. I'm not sure. It mentioned that she has a beautiful singing voice. She is a beautiful girl. We should all be praying for her safe return, and for her family.

I wasn't aware that she may be a member of a local church. Kidnapped as part of a home invasion? What were they doing in her home? Did they steal from her home? I am praying for her safe return. Her family must be sick.

I've been reading some more about it, and I think the Corinth Baptist Church she is a member of is in TN. Still, it's troubling.

Wow.... what an unfortunate story. Is the woman presumed dead or are they thinking there is a chance she's still alive?

Hundreds of Tennessee residents are frantically searching for a 20-year-old nursing student last seen being dragged out of her home by a man wearing camouflage.

Holly Bobo's 25-year-old brother told cops he saw a man pulling his sister across the carport outside their Decatur County home - and toward a wooded area Wednesday morning.

Bobo's brother was inside the house, watching the horror unfold from a window, authorities said.

Authorities fear Bobo is a victim of a home invasion and abduction.

About 250 volunteers and sheriff deputies, assisted by police dogs and helicopters, canvassed the rural community, but turned up no sign of Bobo.

The hunt restarted early Thursday morning.

The apparent kidnapping stunned the close-knit community of Parsons, a sleepy 2,500-person town about 100 miles northeast of Memphis.

Bobo, a 5-foot-3, 110-pound beauty with blonde hair, was last seen wearing a pink shirt and light blue jeans.

She was studying to be a licensed practical nurse through the Tennessee Technology Center, a school spokesman said.

Family friend David Ivey said Bobo, who regularly sang solos at the Corinth Baptist Church, has an "angelic voice" and loved to show it off in talent contests at school.

Bobo's pastor, Don Franks, described her as "a fine young Christian girl."

"The whole community is praying for her safety and well-being," Franks said.

If the brother saw her being dragged out her car port, how far could the kidnapper get?? Why didn't he run after her? Wouldn't that be the natural reaction? I'm praying for her and her family. This is truly frightening. Something is not right though...if you someone across the road being dragged, you would at least keep an eye on it or go after him...this is really strange.

Maybe her brother wasn't sure what was going on right away. The word is that the brother thought it was her boyfriend. It is disturbing. It reminds me a little bit of the "Wooded Rapist", in that it seems this guy came out of the woods behind her home, only to disappear back into them.

It made me cry to see her parents plead for her return. They think that the kidnapper may have been watching the family. The suspect
is said to be 5'10" to 6' tall, 200 lbs., and they found blood in the carport. Investigators do not think the boyfriend is involved. It was a neighbor that heard Holly scream.

Once he got her into the woods, then what? Where would he take her? Is there a close by main road? Getaway driver? It's very scary to know that this monster grabbed her in the presence of neighbors and succeeded in getting away with a grown woman kicking and screaming.

I'm thinking to look at her brother. I mean... he saw her being dragged away and didn't do anything? Sounds like he made this story up to explain why she is missing. Does not make sense. I apologize if I'm way off base because I'm sure there is more to the story and the brother may be wonderful. But I'm just saying that part sounds very fishy!

One story is that her brother was in the shower when she was leaving for school and he heard her scream, from the shower, and jumped out with a towel and looked out the window, grabbed his pants and a gun and ran toward the woods and the story fades off their, the neighbor and the brother called 911. I think the neighbor called first, when they heard the screams. I think they are leaving a LOT of the facts out in order to protect her, there could be a ransom or anything, nobody will know till this plays out. I sure am hoping for a miracle. This has to be one of the hardest things any parent, sibling, family, friend, teacher, neighbor could go through. I think that's an excellent point, to know those dense woods, they would have to live close by....

Holly Bobo was dragged "across the carport of her home… toward a wooded area" in the town of Parsons on Wednesday, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. Both Bobo's mother and 25-year-old brother watched the woman being abducted and called 911.

Mayer would not say if family members tried to intervene or if they were suspected in the abduction.

Bobo is a cousin of Whitney Duncan, a country music singer and a finalist on the television talent show Nashville Star.

"My cousin Holly was kidnapped this morning," Duncan wrote on Facebook. "Please pray for her & our family. This is really sad & shocking."

Investigators initially believe the young woman may have been abducted from her house in a home invasion, but John Mayer, spokesman for the TBI told ABCNews.com that "the suspect was never inside."

Police won't comment on what else family members told them or what evidence may have been left behind.

"The investigation is ongoing," said Mayer.

Between 300 and 400 people are involved in today's search, Mayer said.

Investigators are using sniffing dogs and a helicopter to comb the rural area around Bobo's home, about 100 miles north of Memphis.

Calls to Bobo's family were not returned.
