Country artist WHITNEY DUNCAN made a plea to all her fans last night via her FACEBOOK and TWITTER pages requesting prayers for her cousin, HOLLY BOBO. BOBO, age 21, was abducted from her WEST TENNESSEE home yesterday. According to NASHVILLE’s WTVF NEWSCHANNEL5, BOBO was leaving for class around 7:30a (CT), on WEDNESDAY, APRIL 13th, when she was dragged from her home by a man dressed in camouflage in an apparent home invasion.
"My cousin HOLLY was kidnapped this morning," DUNCAN wrote. "Please pray for her & our family. This is really sad & shocking." She went on to write, "Lord have mercy, I feel like I'm walking in a nightmare. Thanks for all the prayers and please keep spreading the Amber Alert."
BOBO’s 25-year-old brother witnessed the abduction from inside the house and saw the attacker drag her from the carport into a wooded area nearby. Authorities have increased their search today as THE TENNESSEE BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION's VIOLENT CRIME RESPONSE TEAM continue to gather evidence at the home in DECATUR COUNTY, located approximately 100 miles from MEMPHIS.
HOLLY BOBO is 5-foot-3-inches tall with shoulder-length blond hair and weighs around 110 lbs. She was wearing a pink shirt and light blue jeans at the time of her suspected abduction.
Officials have asked if you see BOBO or anything suspicious to contact the TBI at (800) 824-3463.
