, Tenn. (AP) — Authorities say they may have new evidence in the case of a missing Bedford County teacher.
Twenty-four year old Shelley Mook disappeared nearly three years ago. The Shelbyville middle school teacher was last seen at the home of her ex-husband in Bedford County where she had taken their 6-year-old daughter. Her burned car was found by police later that day near Murfreesboro.
Mook's ex-husband is believed to be the last person to have seen her. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation searched his home but he was never arrested.
