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

Police in Missouri respond to possible Mollie Tibbetts sighting

Sgt. Joe Kantola told ABC News that only one individual claims to have seen her. Kearney is just outside of Kansas City, about a three-and-a-half hour drive from Brooklyn, Iowa.

For two weeks, investigators have been searching for clues and conducting hundreds of interviews in the search for Mollie Tibbets.

By Thursday afternoon search teams were back in the area, combing the nearby fields for any trace of the missing girl, according to Fox News. Her family reported her missing the next day after she didn't show up for work.

Police in Kearney, Missouri, say they've responded to a possible sighting of a missing University of Iowa student.

Police say Tibbetts was last seen wearing dark colored running shorts and running shoes.

Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation special agent Mike Krapfl confirmed Thursday that the reported sighting of Mollie Tibbetts wasn't substantiated and has been ruled out by investigators.

Charles Koch regrets some of the choices he and his political operations have made, and won't make the same mistake again. They never wanted to be Democrats. "They have always been more libertarian independents".

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

On July 31, authorities told people during a press conference they were not backing down on the search for Tibbetts. Investigators are still trying to determine why she disappeared. Calderwood believes her daughter is still alive and possibly being held captive.

"At this point, we don't know her exact whereabouts but we continue to look".

WQAD's fellow ABC affiliate KCRG in Cedar Rapids is reporting a heavy law-enforcement presence on a rural stretch of highway in Poweshiek County that could be related to the disappearance of Mollie Tibbetts. Mollie Tibbetts' mother, Laura Calderwood, believes she may have been abducted.

"It is our greatest hope that if someone has her, that they would just release her and claim the money that we have raised for her freedom", she told reporters. "And Mollie was an incredibly strong young woman and I don't know that I have the strength in me and Mollie is lending me her strength every day and every night", she added.
