DECATUR COUNTY, Tenn.--Many people were holding onto hope that Holly Bobo was still alive, until this week. The 20-year-old nursing student was last seen by her brother on April 13th, 2011. Clint Bobo told police that he saw a man dressed in camo with his sister near their home in Darden.

After the TBI announced that 29-year-old, Zachary Adams was charged with Bobo's kidnapping and murder this week, the gears shifted.

Jessie Stanfill, Lexington resident said, " I could tell my wife was heartbroken real bad, and so I started thinking real long and hard."

Stanfill's wife went to high school with Bobo. He helped searched for her when she first disappeared. Today, Stanfill held "Ride for Holly Bobo."

Stanfill explained, "It's just showing the respect to her mother, father and her brother, letting them know we're here..."

The ride started in Henderson County. Hundreds of people decked out their cars and motorcycles with signs and pink ribbons for Holly Bobo.

Steve Burton was part of the search parties and rode his motorcycle today, "I think it's sad from what we've heard so far. Just support the family and thank God for something out of it."

Law enforcement escorted the drivers from Lexington to Parsons at the Decatur County Fair Grounds. The Bobo family was unable to attend, but were at the center of prayers.

Kristin Baugus, Bobo family friend said, "All we wanted was answers and we got the answer the other day; it wasn't the answer we wanted. We went through so many emotions and I could never  begin to feel how Karen and Dana feel right now. For today to be as beautiful as it is, it shows right there that God is with us. And Holly is with us, she's shining her light... her pretty smile."

New t-shirts will be on sale for Holly Bobo that read: Justice for Holly. If you are interested in ordering one, contact Corporate Images: (731)-967-1299.

Zachary Adams is scheduled to be back in Decatur County court for his arraignment on Tuesday.
