Holly Bobo's Family Look For Help At County Fair To Find Missing Student
Huffington Post - over 4 years
The family of Holly Bobo, a young Tennessee nursing student who disappeared in 2011, is hoping a new tip box at the county fair will help garner new leads. The tip box is inside an unmanned booth at the Decatur County Fairgrounds, according to Chris Williams, director of operations for Southeast Canine Search and Rescue. "They put it in an area where there is not a whole lot of foot traffic so if somebody wants to put a tip in, they can do so [anonymously]," Williams told The Huffington Post. "The thought is that if somebody has some information and they are afraid to come forward, maybe they will put a tip in the box." The fairgrounds are about 10 miles from the community where Bobo disappeared. Her family has placed similar boxes at fairs in Harry, Chester and Huntington counties. The boxes have resulted in some tips, but the value of that information is unknown, Williams said. RELATED: HOLLY BOBO PHOTOS Authorities in western Tennessee have been searching for ...
