DECATUR COUNTY, TN -
(WMC-TV) - The search for Holly Bobo remains cold. So far, investigators are revealing very little about their investigation in Decatur County, Tennessee.

The search began Friday morning and continued throughout Saturday with municipalities such as Shelby County assisting by providing search tools as cadaver dogs.

It has been three years since Bobo went missing, yet the community is holding on to hope to see her return home safe. 

Early Saturday morning, Holly Bobo's church, Corinth Baptist, opened their doors for a 12 hour prayer vigil.

"We're praying for Holly and her will being, that she will either be able to escape from her captives, that's number one; that her need be met throughout the day," said Pastor Don Franks.

Franks says every time there is very public search, they are hopeful.

"At this point we still believe that she's alive. Every time that they have a search and they don't find her that gives us evidence that she's still out there," added Franks.

About 30 miles away on Adams Lane in Decatur County, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and Shelby County Cadaver dogs on scene looking for any sign of Bobo's presence.

In the meantime, the man who lives at the residence, Zach Adams, is locked up on assault charges.

The TBI is not naming Adams as a suspect, but many are suspicious.

"My feeling the entire time was that it was somebody that is close to this community, it's such a small area that it would have shocked me if it has been just random. I feel like she was targeted for some reason," said Kyla Cooper.

More movement across the street from the scene by Saturday afternoon.

Henderson County Emergency Management searched a well on this property, but found nothing.

"I hope that whatever comes out of this that there is closure, I hope that they find her alive and well," added Cooper.

Again, TBI officials did not give Action News 5 any updates Saturday evening. A few officials left the scene just after dark, leaving one TBI SUV to block the road leading up to the home.

At this point, authorities do not know if Holly Bobo is still alive and said that they will not speculate.
