The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation made a mistake in failing to pursue leads on four men in the frantic days after nursing student Holly Bobo disappeared from her home, a special agent said Friday.

Brent Booth testified in the trial of Zachary Adams in Savannah, Tennessee. Adams has pleaded not guilty to kidnapping, raping and killing Bobo. She was 20 when she disappeared from her family's home in Parsons on April 13, 2011.

Bobo's remains were found 3 years later in woods not far from her family's home in Decatur County, about 100 miles (160 kilometers) southwest of Nashville. Adams faces the death penalty if convicted of first-degree murder.

Bobo's disappearance led to a massive search. The bureau has said it was the most exhaustive and expensive investigation it has ever conducted.
