All I meant is that had the neighbor been able to hear her scream, her brother should have been able too as well.
My prayers are with Holly and that she'll be home this evening in her bed!!

Everyone has their own opinion. I'm not getting on here running my mouth about people I don't know!! But thank you for your unimportant analysis of me! Once again, HOLLY is what we all need to be focused on. Not putting our foot in our mouths.
I wasn't analyzing you. I was pointing out that you sound very sincere and earnest, and will probably get through to even more people if you pay attention to your grammar. Calling people out for being "obserd" doesn't really sting as it should, given that "obserd" is not a word.

I wish you luck and I really do hope this situation has a positive outcome. The world is a scary place...

You said I sounded like an idiot. It was supposed to be absurd. Yeah, it's misspelled. Thanks droid for the "correction" of a correctly spelled word!

I was actually trying to be nice; I did say you seem earnest, sincere and your heart seems in the right place.

p.s. Brush up on proper usage of quotation marks.

This theory doesn't make sense. If the brother saw and recognized an exboyfriend who is now supposedly also missing then his picture would be all over the place too and it isn't. This is just more junk to confuse the story more. I still question the brother's involvement and will until the police present hardcore proof to the contrary.

First and foremost, we all want her found. I would love nothing more than to receive notification that this beautiful soul is safe.
That being said, nothing in this case is adding up. From Clint's side of things to the dog's scent running cold at a road, but her belongings scattered in the woods miles and miles away. Either we have a highly incompetent abductor or a clever one. A source from the search party says that they are getting close today, so I'm keeping my hopes up. I just can't understand what motive would match these unusual circumstances. I do believe that the lakes and river need to be gone over with a fine toothed comb. Unfortunately enough, it's the only thing that would make sense, and in these cases, a large body of water would remove dna evidence.
As for Ms. Bobo, I'm going with the theory that she was highly sedated. She was my fourth grade teacher, and I've known her my entire life... She worshiped Holly. 90% of mothers in these situations are highly sedated, in unspeakable pain, and in complete shock. You can't understand unless you are a mother (I am). I go into a complete, adrenaline fueled panic when my toddler decides to play hide and seek without my knowledge. I can't imagine how Karen is feeling. Whitney, however, is more than likely acting more distraught than she actually is, but I feel awful saying that since it isn't my place to say. It's just what I observed.
I went to school with Holly almost all the way through. She's about a year older than me, but she was one of the few people in the SH school system that I can honestly say was one of the few good hearted and honest people that I've ever met. She was nothing but kind and sweet to everyone. I would never say that if it weren't true. Helping with the search soon. I'm lighting a candle for you until then, Holly. Keep the fire burning.

Community Member, thanx for sharing..very perceptive and concise comment.
Hello Folks, I have been following this tragic story as there absolutely too many, too often.
I live in the No GA Mountains, born in Savannah(pyburn/pickwick) TN, and attended Central High my Junior year.
I agree CM, you can't draw any conclusions, due to the different reactions to shock and probable medications being taken by the Mom to cope.
A link to a map of the area for us that are not familiar with the abduction area, terrain, bodies of water, etc.

After adding Natchez Trace State Park to the map and from the satellite view, it would be analogous to finding a needle in a haystack due to the vast expanse of forest in the area of abduction.. Time is of the essence in... abduction investigations. If Law Enforcement has hit a wall in the investigation, it is imperative that they get all info out to the hunters(eyes & ears of the Forest) and public via the media, to bring Holly BoBo home...Wolfscratch

The camoflage clothing worn by the abductor wouldn't be unusual for rural areas of TN & this is Turkey season in many states, increasing the number of people wearing camo...

All Tennessee counties are open to wild turkey hunting including WMAs and refuges unless specifically listed.

One media report said that the mother and brother witnessed the abduction, yet Sheriff Wyatt said, that a neighbor heard her scream.. Which is it, or are both accurate?
As for the brother pursueing the abductor, Guess, we don't know what our reaction would be until faced with the tragic reality that he faced..

&#8206;'Authorities will not comment on what else family members told them or what evidence may have been left behind.

It is customary for police to withhold information during an ongoing investigation. They do so for the integrity of the investigation'. The suspect needs to be identified, captured, and the innocent victim rescued. There will be plenty of time later for prosecuting the predator...

Folks, this antiquated way of thinking and antiquated Investigation strategy, of holding info close to the vest by Law Enforcment, is why there are hundreds of 'cold cases' in the States where this policy is practiced.
The American public is a very valuable & free resource for Law Enforcement in abductions, and especially in stranger abduction Investigations...

If the mother & son saw the unsub in camoflauge as reported. A sketch and or description of the abductor, or if it is an exboyfriend stalker, his photo & name should have been plastered all over the media(local & national) within hours after the abduction or before.
If the abductor was an acquaintaince or friend of the family, they would or should have known that the Mother and Brother would have been home at the time, and with access to firearms.

I am sure that Sheriff Wyatt, is a very honorable public servant, but..

A 'Neighbor' heard the screams...Sheriff assumes their still in the woods? 5 square mile search? Too many questions, too few answers...

Welcome to the 21st Century, Sheriff Wyatt. Predators don't care where they prey....no one is imune to abductions.(FBI statistics says; there are 100, 000 missing & murdered innocent victims in the USA)
Small towns or big cities, it doesn't matter...

Knowledge, Information, Communication, DNA Laws/databanks, and the use of all available resources(the American public via the media-local & national), is the answer to preventing abductions, rescuing innocent victims, and capturing predators...
Public Safety is very important to me! Innocent victims lives depend on it..

They found her phone...
Her phone in a car with camo clothes in it? I'd say they have a suspect now...

"They said Bobo's 25-year-old brother saw her outside with a man before she was taken on Wednesday morning. But they said he only saw the man from the back and thought it was her boyfriend.
He did not become suspicious until he went outside and saw blood. Then he called 911. Authorities said he is not a suspect.
The TBI had previously said Bobo was dragged from the home by a man wearing camouflage clothing"

This is from the news link that the above poster provided.
So,why was the news saying all along that the brother" got out of the shower,saw a man dragging her,by the time he got downstairs and outside,to the woods,they'd disappeared." he didn't follow?

Which is the truth? He looked outside and saw her being dragged,or,looked out,saw her outside with a man,thought it was her boyfriend and didn't call 911 until he went out and saw blood??

I'm with you on this one. This is way too confusing.
