NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The abduction of a nursing school student from her home in west Tennessee drew more than a thousand volunteers to search for clues where she was last seen being led into the woods by a man in hunting camouflage.

Six months later, the family of Holly Bobo continues their own searches and investigators are still developing leads and working on the case daily. This week marked not only a half-year since Bobo was last seen on April 13 but also her 21st birthday on Wednesday.

Investigators said early in the search that whoever took Bobo must have been familiar with the rugged woodlands surrounding the family's home near Parsons, about 100 miles northeast of Memphis.
