Today is the one-year anniversary of the disappearance of Holly Bobo. She was supposedly "led" from the backside of her property in Darden, Tennessee. The perp, an unknown man in camouflage hunting gear, was allegedly watched by the missing woman's brother as the two disappeared into the Tennessee woods. Since the disappearance, nothing but mystery and speculation have existed along with the crazy twists and secrecy by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. Hopefully in the next year this case will change, because isn't it time for Holly to come home?
The last true case update came with the alleged discovery of the remains of Holly Bobo, but the TBI says that the sheriff in Alabama who made the announcement was wrongÂ—and that no body had been found. Since then, nothing. That means Holly is still out there somewhere, unless the TBI are the ones lying and that wouldn't be right, would it?
As far as the family's appeals to the media goes, it's only been glimpses here and there of Karen Bobo wanting her daughter home, but where is Clint Bobo when all of this is still going on? Is he purposely not speaking to the media? Have the family attorneys decided to keep him out of the spotlight? Clint Bobo was the last person to see his sister. In fact, he watched her alleged abduction, or so he says. Still, his story has been shaky at best and bizarre at the least with details changing each time he has been spoken to by interviewers regarding his sister's strange disappearance.
Will this year bring any new statements from the 25-year-old man who watched his little sister go into the woods with her unknown captor? Or will this be another full year of no clues and no updates?
Hopefully someone does the right thing in Tennessee, really soon.
Until then, the community will gradually dwindle in interest as it seems to have. The vigils and the events held in memory of the woman seem to become more and more rare as time passes. This week there are bike rallies and church functions for Holly, but what about the next year, or the year after that?
