    We have performed a search for Bs0-->\mu +\mu - and B0-->\mu +\mu - decays in $p\barp$ collisions at $\sqrts=1.96$ TeV using 2 fb-1 of integrated luminosity collected by the CDF II detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. The observed number of Bs0 and B0 candidates is consistent with background expectations. The resulting upper limits on the branching fractions are [script B](Bs0-->\mu +\mu -)\mu +\mu -)
