Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) A fugitive sex offender wanted for questioning in the disappearance of a nursing school beauty has been arrested in Duluth.

According to the New York Daily News, 43 year old Victor George Wall was convicted of molesting a child in Washington State more than two decades ago.

He was arrested Thursday at his girlfriend's home in Duluth.

Nursing student Holly Bobo, 20, went missing from her Parsons, Tennessee home four months ago.

The New York Daily News reports that the 110-pound blonde was last seen being led by a man dressed in camouflage into the woods near her home.

Tennessee authorities couldn't find Wall when they began searching for registered sex offenders as part of Bobo's investigation, according to the Jackson Sun.

Wall was found asleep and was arrested without incident.

He was booked into the St. Louis County Jail, where he waits extradition to Tennessee.

The New York Daily News also reports that he had previously lived near Bobo's home, but vanished after a 10-day stint in jail for stealing a car.

Authorities said there is no direct evidence showing a connection between Wall and Bobo, cousin of country music Whitney Duncan.

Since her disappearance, hundreds of volunteers have joined a massive search to find her.

But as the investigation goes into its fourth month, there have been few leads.
