We're learning more about the discovery of Holly Bobo's purse, and what's inside.

TBI investigators say a dog found her purse Wednesday. Officials used search dogs in the area on Thursday.

WSMV-TV in Nashville is reporting that officials say Bobo's driver license, a camera, a promise ring, and a key chain with a big H were inside the purse.

Karen Bobo, Holly's mom, identified the purse as Holly's before she knew what was inside. Karen Bobo released a statement saying she's grateful the TBI has resumed the search. She says she believes her daughter is alive. 

Previous story

A major search is underway in Darden, Tennessee, after a dog dug up a purse belonging to a West Tennessee woman who has been missing for over two years.

Holly Bobo, 20, a nursing student, was seen being led away on April 13, 2011, by a man wearing camouflage clothing.  Law enforcement and the community joined in a massive effort to find her, but little trace was ever found.

Now, WSMV in Nashville is reporting that a dog brought the purse to the back door of a home near the intersection of Myracle Town and Box roads.  It's been taken to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation for evaluation.  Now, local authorities are searching the area to try to find where the dog may have discovered the purse.

There is a $250,000 reward for Bobo's safe return.
