Search for Iowa college student continues after she vanished on a jog

Authorities search for missing University of Iowa student

The Poweshiek County Emergency Management Agency said that Mollie Tibbetts went missing on July 19 and was last seen in Brookyln, Iowa.

KCRG TV reports that Mollie Tibbetts was staying at her boyfriend's home in Brooklyn last week, watching his dogs while he was out of town for work. A neighbor reported seeing Tibbetts going for a jog last Wednesday evening.

The area is largely farmland, and hundreds of volunteers searched acres of barns, dirt roads and cornfields on Friday and Saturday in a bid to find the missing woman. He said when he opened it, he expected to talk to her again soon.

A Facebook group called "Finding Mollie Tibbets" has been developed to help find information concerning the investigation.

Volunteer searches for Mollie Tibbetts, of Brooklyn, were called off this week as the FBI and state investigators took over, Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation spokesman Mitch Mortvedt said Tuesday.

Investigators are also looking into possible electronic means of tracking down her location.

Dalton Jack's girlfriend, Mollie Tibbetts, has been missing almost a week, but he says he's optimistic and believes she'll be home soon. "She knows Brooklyn extremely well", he told ABC News.

"Everything's on the table, unfortunately", Poweshiek County Sheriff Thomas Kriegel said.

"We're a close-knit community and I couldn't even imagine this happening to one of my kids".

The outpouring of support can be overwhelming, Calderwood said, "in the best way, honestly - to know that you're cared about that way and she's cared about that way".

Tibbetts is originally from Oakland but relocated for school. "It's exhausting, I don't know where she is, I don't know if she's safe", Tibbett's mother Laura Calderwood said by phone.

The woman may be wearing gym shorts, a black sports bra and running shoes.

Tibbetts is described as 5ft 2in tall, weighs about eight-and-a-half stone, and has brown hair and brown eyes.

If people have any information about Tibbetts or her disappearance, they may contact the Poweshiek County Sheirff's Office, 641-623-5679.
