DECATUR COUNTY, Tennessee--State and federal investigators will continue to interview
and execute search warrants in connection of Holly Bobo.  The community is standing by the Bobo family
during this difficult time with a prayer vigil on Saturday.

Nursing student, Holly Bobo
has been missing for nearly three years.  The
streets of her home town area  have pink ribbons tied around each post and there was a prayer service at
Holly’s church, Corinth Baptist Church in Darden. 

TBI searched Zach Adams' property the last few
days and Zach’s mom, Cindy Adams, spoke only to Fox 17 about her son and the investigation.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation was back at Zach Adams' home on Saturday digging for any connections to the disappearance of Holly Bobo.

The 20-year-old at the time went missing near her home, where her brother says he saw her in the woods with a man dressed in camouflage, on April 13, 2011.

Cindy Adams says, " I couldn't even imagine what her family has gone through. My heart goes out to them."

Zach's mother, Cindy say's Holly's mother was her son's 4th grade teacher. Cindy lives in Atlanta now, but her son grew up in the house being searched on Adams Lane in Holladay, TN. Zach still lives at the home, which he inherited after his father passed away. His grandfather owns the property, where another home sits.



Cindy Adams said, " I am just in shock that they
have searched three other places and they've made a public spectacle out of his
house. I just don't understand that."



She does understand that her son has been arrested multiple times. Zach was arrested earlier this week for drug charges in Benton County. The incident reportedly took place in the area where his then girlfriend (according to Facebook), Trisha Evans lives.

Evans sent Fox 17 this statement in regards to the latest spark in the Bobo investigation:

"I want to take this opportunity
to tell the Bobo family that my children and I are keeping them in our
prayers. I have no information which could neither help or hinder in
this investigation. Thank you
."


Zach Adams was also arrested on Friday for assault in Decatur County. The TBI and Sheriff's office are not confirming that he is being arrested in connection to the Bobo case. The TBI says it is still premature to name any suspects.

Cindy Adams is not surprised her son was arrested this week, " He got mixed up with drugs at an early age. It really changed his whole demeanor, but he is one of the sweetest people."

The TBI also searched Zach's great-grandparents old, dilapidated home across Highway 69 from his house. Cindy says the family is dealing with rumors about not only Zach, but his younger brother, Dylan Adams. Cindy says Dylan has been behind federal bars since July. She says he deals with learning disabilities and was questioned by investigators this week.

"I asked him, 'Did you get interrogated?' He said, 'Yeah mom I did. They kept me up all night asking me all these questions about Zachary and Holly, "explained Cindy.

TBI is not releasing any information on whether Dylan or Zachary are involved in the investigation directly.

" I am not saying that either one of them is innocent. I am just saying that as their mother, I am going to believe my children until proven otherwise," said Cindy.
