TBI: Search resumes for woman missing 2 years

PARSONS, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says search dogs are once again looking for a young woman missing for more than two years after she was abducted from her home.

Holly Bobo last seen in April 2011, when her brother said he saw a man in hunting clothing holding the 20-year-old nursing student's arm and leading her into the woods around the family home outside Parsons, about 125 miles northeast of Memphis.

TBI spokeswoman Kristin Helm said law enforcement officials were using search dogs Thursday in an area near Bobo's home. Helm said some neighborhood dogs found what appears to be Bobo's purse on Wednesday.
