PARSONS (AP) - Tennessee investigators and the mother of a nursing student missing for two years say a purse found this week is not that of Holly Bobo.

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Kristin Helm said Friday that Bobo's mother had seen just a photo of the purse two days ago and thought it was her daughter's. But after seeing it in person Friday, Karen Bobo said it did not belong to Holly Bobo.

The purse had been found by neighborhood dogs in the hills in west Tennessee on Wednesday, prompting a search for other clues. But nothing was found.

Members of this tight-knit community had hoped that it would lead to discovery of the whereabouts of the young woman, who vanished two years ago.
