Search mum on item linked to missing Tenn. woman

Searchers have found an item they think belongs to a Tennessee woman missing for nearly two weeks, but investigators aren't saying what it is.

A Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman said Monday it is unlikely the item found in the hunt for 20-year-old Holly Bobo will be described publicly unless investigators decide there is reason to do so.

The nursing student was last seen being led away from her rural home April 13 by a man wearing camouflage clothing.

TBI spokeswoman Kristin Helm said investigators are "pretty sure" the item found in the ongoing search belongs to Bobo but it's not certain it will help.

An $80,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
