TBI Director Mark Gwyn spoke to media Friday afternoon at the scene of one location where authorities were executing search warrants in the investigation into the disappearance of Decatur County nursing student Holly Bobo.
Gwyn said authorities will continue their searches today, Saturday and possibly Sunday at a property on Adams Lane in northern Decatur County and other locations. He wouldn't say what the other locations are, just that there are multiple locations being searched in Decatur and surrounding counties.
Authorities have been searching the property on Adams Lane since early this morning.
Property records indicate the property is owned by Zachary Adams. Gwyn declined to comment about Adams.
The TBI has not named any suspects in the investigation and has said it would be premature to say there are any suspects at this point.
Zach Adams, 29, was booked into the Decatur County Jail Friday on a charge of aggravated assault, according to Decatur County Sheriff Roy Wyatt. Wyatt said he couldn't say whether that charge is in any way connected to the Bobo case, and a TBI spokeswoman said she had no information on the assault charge. Wyatt said he couldn't comment on what led to the charge.
Adams' grandfather, Dick Adams, declined comment.
A friend of Zach Adams', Danielle Darnell, said the TBI met with her and members of her family today to ask about Zach Adams. She wouldn't say what investigators asked her specifically.
The property on Adams Lane is about 15 miles from the Bobo family home where Holly was abducted on Swan Johnson Road in Darden.
Holly was abducted at age 20 on the morning of April 13, 2011. Holly was last seen being led away from her home in Darden, in Decatur County, by a man dressed in camouflage.
