Police in Missouri respond to possible Mollie Tibbetts sighting

Ms Tibbetts' disappearance has baffled investigators since she went missing more than two weeks ago from Brooklyn, Iowa in the US.

Her family reported her missing the next day after she didn't show up to work.

Mollie Tibbetts, a University of Iowa student, went missing after going out for a jog on July 18, 2018.

Additionally, several people reportedly sent KCCI-TV in Des Moines screenshots of a Facebook post about a possible sighting claiming that Tibbetts "might have been drugged, looked disoriented, and was with a truck driver". It turned out that report was not substantiated, and investigators have ruled out the possibility that it was Tibbets, Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation special agent Mike Krapfl told the Associated Press on Thursday.

Kevin Winker, director of investigative operations at the Iowa Department of Public Safety, refused to say whether they've identified any suspects in the ongoing case.

Last Friday that led them to the pig farm near the wildlife reserve where they searched a home and a garage, reportedly without a warrant, Fox News said.


Her father, Rob Tibbetts, said the $172,000 reward is "another tool in our arsenal".

"It is our greatest hope that if someone has her that they would just release her and claim that money that we have raised for her freedom", Calderwood said Thursday at a news conference. Investigators have reached no conclusions about why she has disappeared. Mollie Tibbetts' mother, Laura Calderwood, believes she may have been abducted.

Jack, also 20, said he doesn't believe there's a chance Tibbetts would have left on her own accord. "I can not comment on if there are suspects or persons of interest".

"It certainly helps in that we are able to help establish a timeline and that's certainly critical for any investigation like this", Rahn told ABC News in an interview last week.

Anyone with information in the case is asked to call Crime Stoppers of Central Iowa at 800-452-1111. "I don't know that I have the strength in me, but Mollie is lending me her strength every day, every night".
