PARSONS, Tenn. (AP) — Investigators looking into the abduction of a young nursing student are studying whether an attempted kidnapping three months ago about 40 miles away might be connected.

WSMV-TV reported Thursday that Heather Sullivan of Hickman County said a tall, skinny man in a gray hooded jacket grabbed her arm as she stepped out of her home. However, the glass top of a lamp she was holding fell and shattered, and the man ran away.

Sullivan called police, who searched the woods and found no one. Sullivan said she hasn't seen the man since.

Mark Gwyn, director of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, said authorities will look at all possibilities.

Twenty-year-old Holly Bobo disappeared April 13 and was last seen being led away outside her home by a man in camouflage clothing.
