I think most of us would agree with that - too bad LE didn't figure it out until it was too late.

Erika, Good question about where the horse was kept. A barrel racing horse needs shelter and a pasture and to be fed each day. They are nice horses that need care and training and don't come cheap.
Another point I haven't read being discussed is this:
A tree removal/trimming service requires a lot of large equipment.
A pick up truck, dump truck, large trailers, chain saws, possibly cherry-picker, limb mutching machine, tractor with front end loader, diesel fuel cans, tools etc..
Point being, this equipment had to be moved from job to job and had to have a location to be stored when not in use...imo
Been a while since I've read or posted anywhere, but I decided to see what ya'll were talking about. I have an answer to a little bit of your above post. I've seen the larger equipment that Dana owns parked across the road from the Bobo home.

I've been in the area quite a bit lately, and the only new news that I have heard is something I read in the paper, the News Leader. It has nothing to do with Holly, but there was an arrest of someone who has been talked about quite a bit. He got a DUI. Has no bearings on anything, so I won't throw his name out, but its easy info to find. Also, have spent quite a bit of time out in the woods, which is part of the reason that I haven't posted or read anywhere. I've seen exactly how rugged the terrain is in DC, and how many deep holes and hiding places there are back in those woods. It has kinda made me feel like there is little hope of finding anyone if someone really tried to hide em. I saw a sink hole while riding along a creek that looked like it went down to the depths of hell. It will take years to search every bit of Decatur County. I am encouraged though, to know that there are legit search and rescue groups that know exactly what has been searched and what hasn't. It might take years to search everything, but they are determined to do so, from what I have been told. In theory, it seems like it should be easy to conduct grid searches and cover every area of the county. In reality, there are some really deep hollers and some really tall hills and lots of creeks and small rivers and then, of course, the TN river. It seems like looking for a needle in a haystack to me. When talking to locals, it seems that they have as many varied theories as you will find online. OH, and what in the hell is that maniac from merritt island talking about? He/she/it gives me the creeps. Also, I see that the crazy stripper woman is still on there playing her games, so I will disappear b4 she tries to hunt me down or something. Can't believe she is still on there, what a fruitloop.

Thanks for that NN - Yes I read something very similar on the CB thread a long time ago( around your Thanksgiving in 2011)from a poster who called himself DC Guy. It's going to take someone to roll and point out where she is but what's it going to take to accomplish that? She may not be in DC anyway. Rewards are not helping so the theory of bigger things behind the scenes still plays out in my mind.

I was in the area today. Psychically I have felt Holly for a long time. Today I sadly did not for the first time. I am so confused as to what has happened. I am saddened by the lack of feelings for the first time ever. i pray for the family. I feel that she is no longer around. :(

Like NN said even the locals seem to be at a loss as to why,who and what. Their theories are much like ours.

True enough if she is deceased and just thrown somewhere the animals could have scattered everything everywhere with scarcely a trace

Have you ever tried to think like the perp? I have. I've wondered endlessly about what happened to Holly. I have to say, whoever did this obviously was smart enough to get away with the kidnapping and avoid detection with the mass amounts of people who were out searching for Holly in the weeks that followed. IF the perp killed her and disposed of her in DC, then I would bet that they took care to dispose of her. If I were in the perp's shoes, I know I would be paranoid as hell about the massive turnout from the community. I'd make sure to put a body that was being looked for somewhere that wouldn't be stumbled upon by accident. I'd either bury the body, or put it deep into one of the numerous sink holes I've seen or something like that. The water was up that April wasn't it? There are just way too many places over in those woods, I ain't kiddin a bit. Maybe the answers would be easier to come by if anyone could ever definitively point out what the motive was for her kidnapping. In my mind, there is only one motive that equates her being alive, and that is that she was sold into sex slavery. The rest of the reasons for a motive that I can think of pretty much end up with her being killed. If we ever find out what happened to Holly, I will be shocked if she were kept alive for any length of time and kept in DC. There was WAY too much heat on for the perp to not get the hell out of dodge and quickly. Reckon I could speculate all night long, but in the end, none of us know where Holly Bobo is today, nor do we know why or where she was taken. It's a sad sad thing, it truly is. Look at us all, nearly 2 years later, still looking for answers and none are forth coming.

Perhaps you are right but what I don't get is if Holly's abduction is sex slave related why such secrecy?
I just donít understand why the authorities or the family would withhold information from the public if that were the case. Wouldnít it be more responsible of them to say that they thought it might possibly be sex slavery related and discuss this terrible epidemic in the US and give out more info so that anyone who had related info would come forward and also to clue in these young girls that yes, this problem does exist in your community? It just makes no sense to me as to why information is being withheld from the public regardless of who or why. Itís like they donít want people to figure out what is really going on.

Even Hailey Dunns parents were invited to a rally of sex trafficing.... and then univited...!
With 250,000 reward... you would think they would be on someones rally...!

Well either LE is clueless or there is a reason for the coverup - as has been mentioned what if it was someone of stature in DC and whoever's on the payroll has successfully diverted the investigation. Sex trafficking is very much a possibility but right you are - why no asking for help? If it was someone local who was obsessed with her - it was planned perfectly and they had to have a real good hiding spot picked out. I've also often thought about her being taken by someone out of county and held somewhere as a sex slave and kept under lock and key and maybe even having developed Stockholm Syndrome. So many questions - so few answers.

i really think this was a planned abduction, otherwise I think we would know more at this point. They wouldn't have been able to get her away undetected the way they did. jmo

I think the answer to your questions could possibly be related to what was found on the phone. After all, the phone was retrieved after a tip came in from Jackson, according to Sheriff Roy, right? Searches stopped after finding the phone. Your questions are valid, perhaps the answer could be they hoped that Holly would be kept alive rather than killed, and maybe her phone gave them an indication of something. I know I've been told where it last pinged and where it was tracked to before the SIM was removed, and it certainly wasn't where it was located. Maybe they are hoping and praying to retrieve her alive, and maybe they don't need the perp knowing they are on to him/her/them. There's a whole hell of a lot of info that I've heard locally that has never made it to topix. I have a question about the phone call made to sheriff's dept. If it came from a burner phone, they still have to be activated, and the number assigned to the user. I've bought them myself when I worked in different cities. I normally have to call and get it activated with a credit card, or you can buy minutes in the store. Either way, it seems there would be a way to track down the store the phone was purchased in, and possibly view surveillance videos. I don't know, it just seems unlikely that the burner phone can't be tracked down somehow with today's technology. Whoever made that phone call was involved in the abduction. Also, they wanted LE to find the phone. Why would they not just throw it in the river or something? They put it where it could be found, and then called and told them where to look for it. Why? Something important was found on that phone, IMO, and not once have I heard anyone indicate what it was. If I could ask one question and have it answered by LE, it would be about this info (pics, video, message?) that was retrieved from the phone.

I believe they found that text that he sent her about that underage girl he was bangin.
Didn't it go something like .....if you tell mom about that girl you will get what is coming to you. Then the reply text said something like.... you make me sick you can go to jail for that.
