PARSONS, Tenn. (AP) -

Investigators have suspended the search for a West Tennessee nursing student who has been missing for two years.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation on Thursday had renewed the search for Holly Bobo after dogs from the neighborhood found Bobo's purse and took it to a nearby home.

That discovery spurred law enforcement officials to bring in search dogs to work an area roughly a mile from Bobo's home outside Parsons, about 125 miles northeast of Memphis.

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

Bobo was last seen April 13, 2011, when her brother told authorities he saw a man in hunting clothes leading the 20-year-old into the woods around the family home.
