PARSONS, Tenn. -

For the first time since Zachary Adams' indictment, Holly Bobo's family has released a statement.

In a text message to ABC affiliate WBBJ-TV in Jackson, the family said, "In the recent days, it feels that everything has come against our hope and it seems that all our trust was shattered. We still have hope because of who our hope is in. Holly had that same hope and faith. Because of Jesus Christ, we will see her again. Jesus will provide the strength and grace to see us through."

Loved ones said because of Holly's faith, they're sure she is now safe. They said her faith is what gives them strength and comfort as they hope for justice.

On Saturday, residents are encouraged to decorate their vehicles and drive through Parsons to the fairgrounds to show support for Holly and her family.

The event begins at 3 p.m. at the Lexington parking lot, next to McDonald's.  

Bobo disappeared from her home on Swan Johnson Road outside Parsons, about 100 miles west of Nashville, on the morning of April 13, 2011.

District Attorney General Hansel McCadams said they found evidence that proves Bobo was taken forcibly and that she was killed as a result of that kidnapping.

Zachary Adams, 29, is charged with especially aggravated kidnapping and first degree felony murder in the indictment handed down Wednesday.
