Mom: Purse not that of missing Tennessee womanApril 19, 2013 @ 3:12 pm
PARSONS, Tenn. (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 wasn't.
Neighborhood dogs had found the purse in the hills in west Tennessee on Wednesday, prompting a search for other clues. But nothing was found.
Holly Bobo was last seen April 13, 2011, when her brother said he saw a man in hunting clothes leading the 20-year-old into the woods around the family home outside Parsons, about 125 miles northeast of Memphis.
