  • DARDEN — Law enforcement officers and volunteers spent all day Wednesday searching for a 20-year-old woman believed to have been abducted from outside her Darden home and dragged into the woods by the kidnapper.
    Holly Lynn Bobo was last seen about 7:30 a.m. outside her home on Swan Johnson Road in this community near the line between Decatur and Henderson counties. Investigators say they believe a man dressed in camouflage kidnapped her during a home invasion. A neighbor called police after hearing Bobo scream, and a family member saw the man in camouflage drag her from their carport toward the woods behind their home, authorities said.
    Decatur County Sheriff Roy Wyatt said investigators did not have a suspect Wednesday but that the kidnapper likely knew Bobo's schedule. There was no description given of any vehicle involved, and the kidnapper may have been on foot.
    Family friend Gina O'Brien described Bobo as a "wonderful" person.
    "She's just a sweet girl," O'Brien said following a Wednesday night prayer vigil. "I don't know why she would have any enemies."
    More than 100 members of law enforcement took part in the search, including the Decatur and Henderson County sheriff's offices, Tennessee Highway Patrol and Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, and the use of helicopters and police dogs. The efforts also included more than 100 people who volunteered to help search the woods and nearby neighborhoods.
    Volunteers met up at Bear Creek Baptist Church, about two miles from the abduction scene, as they waited for ATVs and horses to use in looking for Bobo.
    Law enforcement officials remained at a command post near Bobo's home late Wednesday night. They said the search will continue early this morning if she was not found overnight.
    "We're still asking the public to call us and give us any leads," said John Mehr, special agent in charge of the TBI's Jackson office.
    More than 100 people gathered Wednesday night outside Parsons Florist, in the nearby city of Parsons, for a prayer vigil for Bobo.

    ARRESTED now in Colorado...but what a story and week for 2 brothers and their stripper sister!

    Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when... They shot at a law enforcement officer outside of Tampa Bay, Fla., and when they fired inside that bank in Valdosta, Ga. But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E. Dougherty, 29; and half-brother Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26, have been on the lam since Aug. 2 when they shot at a police officer attempting to pull their white Subaru Impreza over for speeding.
