NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Law enforcement agents have searched the home of an Ohio man they accuse of interfering with the investigation into the disappearance of a West Tennessee nursing student.

Last week, agents from Tennessee and Ohio seized a computer and other belongings from the East Liverpool home of Tony Calabrese.

A spokeswoman with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation told WSMV-TV that Calabrese is not a suspect in the disappearance of Holly Bobo. But he has solicited leads and portrayed himself as the leader of a search and rescue team.

Calabrese told the station he believes law enforcement is angry with him because he passed information on to Gov. Bill Haslam.

Bobo was last seen on April 13, walking into the woods near her Darden home with a man dressed in camouflage.
