The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation issued a news release on Friday afternoon that is critical of a series of reports by a Nashville television station.

The station, WSMV, featured interviews with non profit organization "Without Warning" this month regarding its investigation into the Holly Bobo case. WRCB also broadcast WSMV's reports. The TBI contends the "Without Warning" group did not investigate to law enforcement standards.

TBI investigators say each member of the private investigative team admitted that they regurgitated information they had heard and read in order to talk about the case on television.

"The erroneous television reports have led to false leads, public concern and have wasted valuable state resources," said TBI Director Mark Gwyn. 

TBI's investigation into Holly Bobo's disappearance is open and ongoing. Gwyn said multiple TBI Special Agents are assigned to work on the case which they do not consider to be a cold case.

There is a $85,000 government and private citizen reward fund for information leading the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for Holly Bobo's disappearance as well as a reward being offered by a Memphis citizen urging the subject turn himself into authorities for $100,000 and a $250,000 reward for Holly Bobo's safe return.

Information about Holly Bobo's disappearance should be reported to 1-800-TBI-FIND (1-800-824-3463.)
