Search resumes for Tenn. woman missing 2 years


PARSONS (AP) - The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is again searching for a young West Tennessee woman missing more than two years.

TBI spokeswoman Kristin Helm said law enforcement officials were using search dogs Thursday in an area roughly a mile from Holly Bobo's home outside Parsons. Bobo was last seen on April 13, 2011, and authorities have said she was abducted.

Helm said neighborhood dogs found what appears to be Bobo's pink purse Wednesday.

The missing woman's mother, Karen Bobo, issued a statement saying she was grateful TBI had resumed the search. She also said she has "begged" TBI to show her the purse but she hasn't seen it.

Authorities and volunteers conducted extensive searches for Bobo but found little besides her lunchbox.

Karen Bobo said she believes her daughter is alive.
