McALESTER, Okla. -- Clues continue to unfold in McAlester where a nurse went missing on her lunch break at the end of January. 
A purse containing Holly Cantrell's  ID and other belongings was discovered Saturday at Cardinal Point Recreation Area at Lake Eufaula.
"I don't think it's a good sign, finding the purse with all her contents in it. I don't like it and I don't think it's a good sign," said Chris Morris, Pittsburg County Sheriff.
A local hunter was training his beagles for catching rabbits when he discovered the purse, which 

Cantrell's aunt, Sherrill Wilkins, isn't very hopeful that she's alive.
Police said Cantrell was last seen getting into a green truck during her lunch break on Jan. 20. Family members say the driver, Cody Ketchum, has nothing to do with her disappearance.
"You don't sleep at night. You sleep a couple hours," Wilkins said. "I go out on my porch and think, 'where do I start? Where do I look? Where do I begin?"
After 38 days, Wilkins is hoping more clues come to the surface.

"Someone out there knows where she is," Wilkins said.
