Community comes together to remember Holly Bobo

(WMSV-TV) - It has been a very long week for everyone connected to the Holly Bobo case. For the community that has followed every detail, today was an opportunity to show their support for the Bobo family.

Individuals came together for what they called, a "Ride For Holly".

If you did not know the back story, you would almost think it was a homecoming parade; young people painting their cars with a special message. But there color is the clue. It is the same color that is covered in this area; ever since Holly Bobo was last seen nearly three years ago.

Many of the participants in Saturday's ride were touched personally by her disappearance. For the Baker family, today was a way to show support in what has been an unimaginably tough week.

"Here for them," said Pam Baker. "As a mom myself, I'm here for them."

As for the suspect charged in Holly's kidnapping and murder, Zachary Adams, he is still listed as an inmate in the Chester County Jail.
