Investigators on Friday said they have suspended the search for Holly Bobo, a West Tennessee nursing student who has been missing for two years.

A purse authorities believed to be belonging to Bobo was found Wednesday and re-ignited this week's search, as law enforcement - including the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation - canvassed for hours near Darden, TN.

TBI spokeswoman Kristin Helm said nothing was found during the search, and there are no further searches planned.

Bobo's mother, Karen Bobo, said Friday the purse did not belong to her daughter a day after saying that it did, Helm said.

Holly Bobo, a resident of the area, vanished from Parsons in Decatur County on April 13, 2011.

Investigators said a dog first brought the purse to the back door of a home near the intersection of Myracle Town and Box roads, which is about one mile from Bobo's home.

The purse was taken to the TBI for further examination, and investigators continued the search to try and find out where the dog may have discovered the purse and if any other clues were nearby.

There is a $250,000 reward for her safe return. You can call 1-800-TBI-FIND with information. The family asks you send tips to helphollybobo@gmail.com.
