FBI Agents are still searching for answers in Brooklyn, Iowa. It's still unclear if Mollie returned to her boyfriend's house after her jog on July 18th.
Her brother says investigators told him she was doing homework the night she disappeared. Mollie's boyfriend also says he got a SnapChat from her around 10 p.m. that same night, and she appeared to be indoors.
However, Investigators don't want to reveal what they call the "solid timeline" they've pieced together. Authorities say there is nothing new to report publicly on the search, but they're still working hard.
No piece of information is too small or insignificant. Mollie's father says it could be the clue that brings his daughter home.
We are fighting. That's all we can do,” said Rob Tibbetts. “She is a real person. Not a missing girl on a poster.”
Today, the Poweshiek County Sheriff's Office plans to hold a news conference announcing a new reward at 1:30 p.m. KCCI will stream that news conference on the KCCI News App and our Facebook page.
The boyfriend of missing Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts spoke about how hard it has been since she disappeared.
“Initially, it was shock and then, you know, it gets harder day by day because she's still not here and you miss her, you miss her more than anything in the world,” Dalton Jack said in an interview.
Jack, who was working a job in Dubuque, Iowa, on the night Tibbetts went missing, is not a suspect in the investigation.
Tibbetts, 20, was last seen jogging on the evening of July 18 in Brooklyn, Iowa, said Kevin Winker of the Iowa Department of Public Safety. Tibbetts was believed to be wearing dark running shorts, a pink sports top and running shoes, according to police.
She was reported missing the following day after not showing up to her job at a day care.
Jack told the TV station KCRG that Tibbetts had sent him a Snapchat late on July 18, presumably after she had gotten back from her run.
“She's not going to run off," Jack said in an interview. “I try not to speculate on it too much because the only thing that comes into your head whenever you're not investigating all the facts is that something bad happened and you don't, I personally don't want to believe that."
The anguished mom of missing student Mollie Tibbetts has revealed perplexing new clues about her daughter's mysterious disappearance two weeks ago - telling DailyMail.com: 'I'm in purgatory.'
University of Iowa sophomore Mollie, 20, was last seen on the evening of July 18 when she went jogging in her rural hometown of Brooklyn.
In the past two weeks investigators have completed 200 interviews, fielded hundreds of tips and carried out painstaking fingertip searches of the vast cornfields surrounding the close-knit farming community, an hour east of De Moines.
But without a single credible lead pointing to her daughter's whereabouts, Laura Calderwood, 54, added: 'I'm either going to be headed up to heaven or down to hell, depending on the result.'
Police are hunting a suspicious black SUV that was seen by neighbors circling the neighborhood where Mollie Tibbetts vanished on July 18 after ruling that a body found 100 miles away this weekend is not the missing university student.
On Sunday, the body of a white woman in her mid 20s was found in West Point, Iowa, 100 miles from Brooklyn, Iowa, where Tibbetts vanished.
Investigators ruled out on Sunday night that the body could belong to Mollie and refocused their search on the vehicle that was seen driving slowly around the block where the girl's boyfriend lives for around 90 minutes on the night she went missing.
The woman whose body was discovered on Sunday has not been named.
The SUV circled the neighborhood between 11.30pm and 1am, according to a young woman who lives a block away from the home of Tibbetts' boyfriend Dalton Jack.
