FRIDAY MORNING UPDATE: The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation reports that nothing resulted from Thursday's search effort. They do not currently have any plans for another search in the near future.

ORIGINAL STORY: DARDEN, Tenn. - The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said dogs found a purse investigators believe Holly Bobo had with her at the time of her disappearance in 2011.

According to a TBI spokesperson, dogs which belonged to a neighbor found the purse and brought it home to their owner. Investigators do not know exactly where the dogs found the purse.

Law enforcement agents were searching the area with dogs to try and find where the animals found the purse.

That area was previously searched by volunteers shortly after Bobo's disappearance.

Ever since her disappearance, volunteer crews have searched
areas around her home looking for any clues that might lead to
finding the nursing student.

Anyone with information about Holly's case is urged to call 1-800-TBI-FIND. There is a $185,000 reward.
