 TENNESSEE cops are still refusing to call the Holly Bobo case a homicide and it remains classified as a missing persons investigation.  It’s now two months since the 20-year-old nursing student was abducted from her Decatur County home and cops are still no closer to finding her kidnappers.
Authorities are still searching local areas every week and receive tips every day but so far nothing substantial enough to break the case.  Despite the lack of progress, TBI agent John Mehr insists that the investigation is still a missing persons case and
not a homicide.  While the local community has been helpful, Mehr believes that there are individuals deliberately withholding information that could bring Holly home safely.
 He said: “We know people have that information. Just please call us. There's no doubt in my mind.  There are people who know what happened to Holly, and there may be more than one person involved."
The continued effort has exhausted locals and police alike yet all continue to search.  Members of the small community continually revisit areas of interest in the case in the hope of finding some small clue or lead. Like members of the local community, worn out from anxiety, Highway Patrol officer Lt. Brad Wilbanks hasn’t given up hope.
"We're still waiting on that tip. We're one tip away from finding her," Wilbanks said.
