(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — Investigators in Tennessee may have made a breakthrough in the case of missing nursing student Holly Bobo, a 20-year-old who disappeared in 2011.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigations said it will hold a news conference Wednesday to announce updates in the case.

Law enforcement sources told ABC News affiliate WKRN in Nashville that the briefing will be about criminal charges that have been leveled in the case.

The announcement comes just a week after the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations searched a property in Holloday, Tenn., about 15 miles north of where Bobo disappeared. The owner of the property was arrested on unrelated charges and has not been named as a suspect in the disappearance, according to WKRN.

Bobo disappeared from her home in April 2011 when a man in camouflage dragged her into the woods near her home, according to witness statements from her brother, Clint.

Bobo lived with her family about three hours outside of Nashville. Clint Bobo said he mistakenly believed the man was her boyfriend.

In the years since, police have stopped searching for Bobo and said they had no suspects in the case.

Bobo has blond hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing a pink shirt and light-blue jeans.

The TBI will hold its briefing at 5 p.m. Eastern Time.
