Human remains discovered in a rural Tennessee county are those of Holly Bobo, a missing nursing student who disappeared from her home in April 2011, investigators said late Monday.

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director Mark Gwyn reported at a news conference late Monday that Holly Bobo’s remains were found near her home in the town of Parsons, approximately 110 miles east of Memphis, Tennessee. Authorities in Tennessee say that the human skull discovered over the weekend in rural Decatur County was the skull of nursing student Holly Bobo, who disappeared in April 2011 when she was 20 years-old.

Two men discovered the skull Sunday, approximately 10 miles from property owned by the family of Zachary Adams, who has been charged in Bobo’s kidnapping and murder along with Jason Autry, who is also facing murder and kidnapping charges. Both men have pleaded not guilty. The area was searched last March with no results.

Two brothers, Jeffrey Kurt Pearcy and Mark Pearcy, also face charges of tampering with evidence and accessory after the fact in the case. Both men have also pleaded not guilty.

A week after she was last seen, volunteers continue to search for 20-year-old Holly Bobo of Parsons, Tennessee. Bobo’s brother told police he saw a man lead her into the woods.

In April 2011, Holly Bobo’s brother Clint Bobo, 25, says he saw her sister being led into the woods by a man wearing camouflage, who he initially thought was her boyfriend. Later he discovered blood in the carport and called 911.

Clinto Bobo gave the description of the man leading Holly Bobo away from their home as an unknown man, 5’10” to 6’0″ 180 to 200 LBS, and wearing full camouflage.

Investigators in the Holly Bobo case, on Wednesday, started setting up road blocks across the West Tennessee community in an attempt to advance the search for the missing 20-year-old nursing student who vanished one week ago today at 7:30 AM, April 13, 2011.

Items of interest discovered during the search for Holly Bobo, include duct tape with blonde hair sticking to it, and a lunch box found in the woods believed to be Holly Bobo’s. Holly Bobo’s cell phone and purse had also been discovered. Investigators early in the investigation believed it was a hunter or someone familiar with the family and the family’s schedule that abducted Holly Bobo.

Holly Bobo is the cousin of country music singer Whitney Duncan.

Investigators urged citizens to contact authorities of any suspicious activity such as excessive cleaning of an ATV or car or the occurrence of a stolen ATV or car. Investigators believed the offender may have left the area with Holly on some type of vehicle.

Holly Bobo was described as 5’3″ 110 LBS. She was last seen wearing a pink shirt and light blue jeans.
