(CBS/WREG/AP) PARSONS, Tenn. - It has been more than one month since a man was seen leading 20-year-old nursing student Holly Bobo into the woods outside her home, but investigators say they think they are just one clue away from cracking the case, a report says.

Investigators say every day since she was reported missing they have discovered new leads and sometimes new information regarding Bobo's case. They still are not naming suspects but say they are getting closer, reports local station WSMV.

While police initially believed an abductor dragged Bobo away as she left home for school April 13, investigators later said they suspect it was a community member in camouflage who led Bobo into the woods near her home.

Bobo is 5-feet-3-inches tall and weighs 110 pounds. She was last seen around 7:30 a.m. wearing a pink shirt and light blue jeans.

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation officials said they are getting more leads than they can handle, including hundreds of calls about rumors. They ask only people with serious information to call 800-TBI-FIND.
