PARSONS, Tenn. (AP) -- The family of a missing Tennessee woman has put a booth at the Decatur County Fair, hoping someone might slip a clue into a box placed there.

Chris Williams, with Southeast Canine Search and Rescue, said the Bobo family also wants to shake hands with people who have helped in ongoing searches for Holly.

Williams said the family believes Holly is still alive. The searcher is less certain and said success could be discovery of a burial site.

It was on April 13, 2011, that the 20-year-old woman disappeared from her rural home in Parsons. Her brother said he saw her being led into the woods by a man in hunting gear. Searchers have looked for her nearly every weekend since.

The reward fund for information has grown to $250,000.
