Tennessee investigators get new lead in 2-year-old disappearance
PARSONS, Tenn. — The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation sent out search dogs on Thursday to look for a young woman who has been missing since she was abducted from her home a little more than two years ago.
Holly Bobo was last seen April 13, 2011, when her brother said he saw a man in hunting clothes leading the 20-year-old nursing student into the woods around the family home outside Parsons, about 125 miles northeast of Memphis.
TBI spokeswoman Kristin Helm said dogs from the neighborhood found Bobo's purse on Wednesday and took it to a nearby home. That discovery spurred law enforcement officials to bring in search dogs to work an area roughly a mile from Bobo's home.
