Mollie Tibbetts 'Sighting': Was She Seen in Missouri?

The search continues for missing University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts

Tibbetts, a 20-year-old from Brooklyn, Iowa, has been missing for two weeks.

The 20-year-old was last seen on the evening of July 18, when she went for a routine jog in Brooklyn, a town of about 1400 people in central Iowa.

State investigators have said they pursue all leads and have conducted multiple searches.

"The Kearney Missouri Police Department did respond to a possible sighting on 7-26-2018 at a truck stop within our jurisdiction", local police said in an official statement.

The reward for information that brings Mollie Tibbets home has reached $200,000 as of Friday. The University of Iowa sophomore was last seen July 18 on her nightly run. She said that it's the family's greatest hope that whoever may have Tibbetts lets her go and claims the "money we have raised for her freedom". "We believe that Mollie is still alive, and if someone has abducted her, we are pleading with you to please release her", she said.

But he said, "I'm confident we have a solid timeline that we're working on" - though he added that they weren't releasing that information just yet.

The family also praised law enforcement efforts as well as national and global media coverage that has kept Tibbetts' disappearance in the public consciousness. "We feel this is the best approach because it gives us the best opportunity to resolve this case".

Collum said he often saw Tibbetts running in the neighborhood but didn't on the night she vanished.

Tipsters can call Crime Stoppers of Central Iowa at 800-452-1111 or 515-223-1400.

Family members have urged the public to come forward with any information, "the bottom line is somebody knows something", Tibbetts father, Rob, told Fox News.

In just one day, the "Bring Mollie Tibbetts Home Safe Reward Fund" raised $172,000 (AUD $233,500) Tibbetts' mother, Laura Calderwood, revealed at a press conference on Thursday. "We are very hopeful with the electronic data we are getting back", Mitch Mortvedt, assistant director of the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, previously told the Des Moines Register.
