SHELBYVILLE

, 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.

However, WKRN-TV reports that TBI investigators have seized the van of the ex-husband's neighbor and that they're processing it for possible evidence.

The circumstances that led to the seizure have not been released.
