Imagine receiving a phone call that your daughter has disappeared. Now imagine search efforts being called off and three months going by without any trace of her. Do you start to lose hope? For the Bobo family, the answer is no.
Their 20-year-old daughter Holly disappeared on April 13th, 2011 from their Tennessee home. The nursing student was reported missing by her brother Clint when he saw her being led into the woods near their house by a man in hunting attire. At first, her brother assumed that it was her boyfriend, but when he found traces of blood, he became worried.
As the weeks passed on, search parties were called off, only finding Holly’s lunchbox and a few other items belonging to her. The state approved a $50,000 reward, which is now up to $85,000 due to the family’s efforts, for the safe return of Holly. Unfortunately, with over 300 credible leads, the man who took Holly is still unknown.
One day shy of her April 13th disappearance three months ago, Holly’s family launched the Holly Bobo Across America Campaign.
According to fleetowner.com, the campaign idea began when a woman who was friends with Amerawear Corp. owner Steve Hinson on Facebook, mentioned the idea of placing Holly’s picture on tractor trailers since they travel across the country and could reach a greater audience as well as provoke greater search efforts.
The idea took off and several truck decals and car window clings featuring Holly were sold to over a hundred trucking companies who wanted to help the cause.
You can help too by adding a decal to your fleet.
Truck decals cost $25.50 plus tax and shipping and are 2×3 feet while window clings measure 8×10 in. and are $5.50 plus tax and shipping (http://fleetowner.com/management/news/family-truckers-help-tennessee-0720/).
Items can be purchased via phone at 866-363-1140 (Steve Hinson). Those writing checks can send it to:
450 Tennessee Ave.
South Parsons, TN 38363
Checks are asked to be made out to “Holly Bobo Across America.”
