Cousin of Rising Country Music Star is Abducted

Country music star Whitney Duncan is joining the hunt for her kidnapped cousin, and is appealing for help from her fans on Facebook.

She posted: "My cousin Holly was kidnapped. We are offering a $25,000 reward. Please help us."

Police say 20-year-old Holly Bobo, a nursing student, was abducted from her home outside Nashville and dragged into the woods by a man wearing camouflage gear. Her 24-year-old brother says he saw the kidnapping.

Volunteers are scouring the dense woods on horseback and on ATV's.

Holly's mom made a heart-rending plea for her safe return, saying to the press, "Please help us find her."

Whitney Duncan was a breakout talent on Nashville Star,  the American Idol of country music. She tweeted about joining the hunt for her lookalike cousin and her pain over the shocking abduction.

"Please pray for her. Lord have mercy. I feel like I'm walking in a nightmare," tweeted Duncan.
