An arrest in the case of missing nursing student Holly Bobo this week comes after authorities now believe they can prove that she was killed during a kidnapping attempt. Zachary Rye Adams is under arrest and held without bond in the 2011 disappearance of the missing nursing student, according to ABC News on March 5.

Bobo was last seen in April of 2011 being led into a wooded area by a man dressed in camouflage, according to her brother, Clint Bobo. He mistakenly thought that the man was her boyfriend. Fox News live says Bobo was being led into the woods "in the dark of night."

This was near the family’s home, which was about three hours outside of Nashville.
Authorities are not saying much in the case just that they believe they can prove that Bobo was killed during a kidnapping attempt, which would have Adams facing charges of a “felony murder.”

Adams was arrested after investigators searched Adam’s property in Holladay, Tennessee. This was about 15 miles from where Bobo disappeared. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation would not say what they found and they wouldn’t say if they had found Bobo's body or not.

Bobo was 20-years-old when she disappeared. According to Fox News the investigation is still active at the residence of Adams today. Adams was arrested last week for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend's sister. It was during the search of his home that investigators found enough evidence to present to a Grand Jury in the Holly Bobo case.

When Fox talked to the neighbors of the town where Holly lived, they said that they were glad that this was over for the family and alluded to Holly's remains possibly being found saying "she's finally home." Authorities have not said what it was they found at Adams' home that is enough to bring him up on felony murder charges.
