(WMC-TV) - Tennessee Bureau of Investigation charged Zachary Rye Adams with an additional criminal count in its ongoing investigation into the disappearance of Holly Bobo.

Investigators developed additional information that led special agents to secure an arrest warrant Tuesday, charging Adams with a single count of coercion of witness.

On March 5, a Decatur County Grand Jury charged Adams with first-degree murder and especially aggravated kidnapping in connection to the disappearance and murder of Bobo.

"We will not tolerate any kind of coercion in criminal cases," said TBI Director Mark Gwyn in a written statement. "But in a case like this, which has attracted so much interest and required so many resources, rest assured we will fight hard to protect the integrity of our work, as we see justice for the family and friends of Holly Bobo."

Holly Bobo went missing April 13, 2011. She was last seen by her brother being led into the woods by a man wearing camouflage.

Zachary Adams was served with the arrest warrant Tuesday. He is still being held in Chester County Jail without bond.
