(Scroll down for video) After several years, a dog found a missing woman’s purse which might lead investigators to some clues in solving the mystery of her disappearance, according to press reports in Tennessee.
Two years after the Tennessee nursing student went missing, a dog dug up the first piece of evidence in a case that had long since gone cold.
Just a mile from the home of Holly Bobo in Darden, a neighborhood dog found her leather bag.
It is unclear what was inside the bag or if it was intentionally buried.
Bobo, then 20, was last seen on April 13, 2011 by her brother. She was going to school when Clint said he saw a man dressed in camouflage grab her by the arm, pulling her into the woods. Clint reportedly thought the man was Bobo’s boyfriend, but later became concerned and contacted her mother, who called emergency services.
A neighbor also called emergency services when he heard a woman screaming shortly after 7:30 am.
A pool of blood was found next to the garage of the family on the day of her disappearance. Investigators believe her kidnapping was premeditated.
Bobo’s family has not given up hope in the search for the woman, who is the cousin of country singer Whitney Duncan.
“The family must be extremely excited at this new glimmer of hope after waiting 2 years for a sign of their missing daughter. Hopefully, investiagtors will now be able to break the case open and finally bring closure to the grieving family,” Betty Phillips, 39, of Lincoln, Nebraska told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the find.
Bobo is described as a white woman, 5 feet 3 inches tall, weighing 110 pounds, with blond hair. She was last seen wearing a pink shirt and blue jeans. Bobo’s abductor is described as 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, and weighing about 200 pounds.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
