Reward for Mollie Tibbetts' safe return raises to $172000

At a news conference on July 31, Kevin Winker, director of investigative operations for the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, said investigators haven't drawn any conclusions about what happened to Tibbetts other than that disappearing on her own is "not consistent with her past". Kearney is about 25 miles northeast of Kansas City.

It was reported early Wednesday that Mollie Tibbetts, who has been missing since July 18, had potentially been seen eight days later at a Kearney truck stop near Interstate 35 and Highway 92. When police received the tip, they conducted a search of the area, spoke with witnesses, reviewed any potential surveillance video and then sent a report to the task force investigating Tibbetts' disappearance.

Investigators continue to remain tight-lipped about the investigation into the disappearance of 20-year-old University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts.

Tibbetts was last seen wearing dark-colored running shorts, a pink sports top and running shoes.

Law enforcement in Iowa will give an update Friday morning on the effort to find Mollie Tibbetts. "Imagine if this was you, somebody had taken your Mollie".

Here is one of the Facebook posts circulating in the case and that a person posted on the Finding Mollie Tibbetts Facebook page comment thread.

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.

There is a $30,000 reward for information that leads police to Mollie's whereabouts.

She was up late doing homework on her computer the night she vanished, according to family members.

She was dog-sitting that evening for her boyfriend and her boyfriend's brother, who were out of town, at a home where she was living this summer after completing her second year at the University of Iowa.

When asked whether there were any suspects in the case, Winker replied "As far as suspects go, we're continuing to look at all possibilities".
