    Investigators say they have found "compelling" information in the disappearance of a Massachusetts teen lifeguard who was last seen 17 years ago. 

    "We did find some compelling information at the campground that will lead us back there in the next several subsequent days," said Dr. Sarah Stein, a private investigator for the Bish family. 

    Sixteen-year-old Molly Bish vanished from Comins Pond in Warren in June 2000. Her remains were found three years later about five miles away in the woods of Palmer.

    Molly's mother, Magi Bish, is holding on to hope relentlessly searching for her daughter's killer.

    "As a mother you always have hope that something will happen, that there will be an answer," said Bish, Molly's mother. "You just can't steal someone's child and then to harm her in such a way, there's got to be justice."

    Cold case investigators were using ground-penetrating radar to look for a car they believed was buried in the West Brookfield area.

    They announced Thursday afternoon that they found compelling anomalies underground at multiple areas of interest.

    "We did find very compelling areas of interest," said Stein. "Items on the surface of the ground that lead us to believe that something is buried."

    Peter Massey is a criminologist at the University of New Haven who volunteered to use his radar equipment to search for clues in Molly's case. 

    "The patterns are somewhat consistent with what we're looking for," said Massey.
