    Searchers in western Tennessee continued looking Thursday for a nursing student who was last seen being dragged from her house by a man wearing camouflage.

    Some 300 people gathered in Parsons on Thursday morning to resume the search for Holly Bobo, 20, after volunteers searched the rural area around her home Wednesday.

    Bobo's 25-year-old brother told investigators he saw a man dragging her across the carport at her family home and toward a wooded area, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said.

    Bobo's brother was inside the house and the kidnapping was outside in the rural area of small, modest homes about 100 miles northeast of Memphis, the TBI said. A spokeswoman would not give more details on what the brother told them.

    "It's very disturbing to our community, it's very disturbing to us as law enforcement. We are praying for the family and the young lady," WTVF-TV quoted Decatur County Sheriff Roy Wyatt as saying. "It's our hopes and our prayers that we find her alive."

    Investigators are looking into the possibility that someone may have checked out Bobo's home before the abduction and are asking neighbors to report any unusual people or cars in the area.

    Since news of the case spread, neighbors and people in nearby communities have poured out to help search, bring food and support. Family members who are holding together reasonably well, Decatur County Mayor Michael Smith said.

    Additionally, country music singer Whitney Duncan took to Twitter to spread news of the disappearance and make a plea for help in the case, saying Bobo is her cousin.

    I hope he tried to do more than watch.

      This is the missing girl.




      I hope this ends well because it doesn't feel like it will.

                Same here...that struck me as odd. He'd better be in a wheelchair or something, otherwise...

                My sister? That guy would be laying in the front yard at bayonet point when the cops arrived.
