PARSONS, TN (WSMV) -
Holly Bobo's mother is making a direct plea to President Barack Obama to help find her missing daughter.
Bobo's mother, Karen Bobo, along with Holly's brother and her father all appeared on NBC's Today Show Saturday morning. They spoke about how the search has changed and her brother spoke about the last time he saw his sister.
"We search, we do something every day, to help find our daughter," Karen Bobo said.
Sitting side by side and wearing black t-shirts with hot pink ribbons, a symbol that's become synonymous with the search for Holly, her family made a plea to the President of the United States.
"As Holly's mom, nearly four months into it, we still don't have holly so I'm asking for help from President Obama, if you could please send some more help," Karen said.
Authorities still don't know what happened to Holly. She vanished from her family's house on April 13 after her brother, Clint said he saw her being led into a woods by a man dressed in camouflage.
"Well at first I thought the guy she was walking with was her boyfriend, then I realized that, too late, it was not her boyfriend, after she had been abducted," Clint Bobo said.
Paragliders have now joined the search and a sex offender who lived close to Holly's house was arrested in Minnesota this week. However, investigators say they have no reason to believe he's connected to her disappearance.
"The last I heard the paragliders were supposed to be in communication with the TBI and I haven't heard anything since then," said Clint Bobo.
What started almost four months ago as a massive ground search in the rural town of Parsons, has now turned to just one family, going door to door.
"Someone has to have seen something, someone knows something and so we are begging those people to please come forward with that information," Karen said.
Saturday, Aug. 13, marks four months since Holly disappeared. Her church is planning a gospel singing and a candlelight vigil next Saturday night at the Decatur County Fairgrounds.
Pastor Don Franks said he's hoping the vigil will instead be a victory celebration of Holly's safe return back home.
There will also be a fundraiser at Hard Rock on Broadway in Nashville on Saturday, Aug. 13.
"Hope for Holly" will be a benefit featuring performances by Heather Cohen & Stephen Salyers beginning at 10 p.m.
The cost is just $5 for anyone 18 years and up.
All proceeds will go to Holly's family to help cover search expenses.
