PARSONS, Tenn. (WKRN) A spokesman for the family of a missing Decatur County nursing school student says the reward for her safe return has been increased to $250,000.
Kevin Bromley said Wednesday the reward has grown from the previous amount of $85,000 in the disappearance of Holly Bobo. He said the source for the added funds will remain private.
Bobo was last seen April 13 outside her home near Parsons. Her brother said he saw her being led into the woods by a man in hunting gear. She would now be 21 years old.
Kristin Helm, spokeswoman for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, said Wednesday the new funds are not from law enforcement and apparently came from private sources.
Bobo is described as five foot, three inches tall, weighing 110 pounds with blue eyes and shoulder-length blonde hair.
She was last seen wearing a pink shirt, blue jeans and black flip flops.
Anyone with information regarding her disappearance is urged to contact the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.
