In return, someone may come forward to be the hero and give you all the right information to resolve this case.”

Each member of the team stated the information provided to them came from the victim’s family.

According to the TBI the, “team admitted that they regurgitated information they had heard and read in order to talk about the case on television.”

In a statement, a spokesperson for the TBI said, “No information contained in the documents and video has led to any new evidence in the two year old investigation. The majority of documents contained in the binders are print outs of social media sites, comments posted on various internet websites, personal notes, public records, news articles and a production shooting schedule.”

Statement from Without Warning:

The entire Without Warning Team stands by its actions to help find Holly Bobo and strongly disagrees with TBI’s portrayal of WW’s efforts. The team is committed to assisting the family, the community and law enforcement solve her abduction and bring her home.  Everything the team has gathered has been given to the family who has in turn made all resources available to TBI. The recent news stories have regenerated an interest in Holly’s case, including new tips and potential witnesses.   Without Warning has thoroughly cooperated with the TBI and has offered its full resources to law enforcement for the common goal of bringing resolution for the family.
