(ABC News) --  Murder and aggravated kidnapping charges were filed today against a suspect in the disappearance of Holly Bobo.

Zachary Rye Adams is being held without bond in connection with the disappearance of the nursing student, who hasn't been seen since 2011.

"We believe we can prove she was taken forcefully from her home without her consent," a law enforcement official said. "We also feel she was killed in the perpetration of the kidnapping, thus we have a charge of felony murder."

Authorities did not rule out another arrest in the case and would not reveal if or where Bobo's remains were found.

Adams is scheduled to be arraigned March 11 in Decatur County, Tenn.

The announcement comes just a week after the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations searched Adams' property in Holladay, Tenn., about 15 miles north of where Bobo disappeared.

Adams was arrested last week on an unrelated aggravated assault charge.

Bobo disappeared from her home in April 2011 when a man in camouflage dragged her into the woods near her home, according to witness statements from her brother, Clint.

Bobo lived with her family about three hours outside of Nashville. Clint Bobo said he mistakenly believed the man was her boyfriend.
