They say, instead, that he saw blood outside the home after he saw her speaking with a man. He has also been ruled out as a suspect, reports CBS affiliate WREG

Additionally, the search was moved from her home to an area about eight miles away Friday after authorities say they discovered a car that had Bobo's cell phone along with camouflage clothing inside.

Authorities are asking people in Decatur County to help search in this new area. Those who can help should meet at the command post at the Decatur County fairgrounds.

Bobo has been missing since Wednesday from her home in Parsons, about 100 miles northeast of Memphis.

Bobo is 5-feet-3-inches tall and weighs 110 pounds. She was seen around 7:30 a.m. wearing a pink shirt and light blue jeans. Officials ask that if you see Holly or anything suspicious contact the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.
