Missing Iowa Jogger Mollie Tibbetts: Police Rule Out Possible Sighting

Missing student possibly spotted at Missouri truck stop thought to be with truck driver

Police in Missouri respond to possible Mollie Tibbetts sighting

More than 200 interviews have been conducted in the investigation into her disappearance, said Richard Rahn, the special agent in charge with the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation for the Major Crime Unit, earlier this week. She was last seen going for a jog, although, due to a Snapchat she sent her boyfriend later that night, it's believed she might really have vanished after that point, possibly even the next morning. He said she stayed at his Brooklyn house alone and watched his dogs.

Investigators say they have concluded that a woman spotted in northwest Missouri was not a missing Iowa college student.

Kearney, Missoui police responded on July 26 to a possible sighting of Tibbetts, 20, at a truck stop in the area, police told KSFY News affiliate KMBC.

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.

Analysts polled by Bloomberg have an average price target of $212.79, which would translate to a market cap of $1.046 trillion. Apple announced $100 billion in stock buybacks on May 1, the largest repurchase ever by a USA public company.

Family members have told local news outlets that it would be out of character for Mollie to disappear on her own.

In an unusual move, she even said the kidnapper could claim the reward money after setting Tibbetts free. "They've put together a very sophisticated investigation", he said of the police. "We feel this is the best approach because it gives us the best opportunity to resolve this case". "We are deeply appreciative of the partnership with law enforcement and media". "We believe that Mollie is still alive, and if someone has abducted her, we are pleading with you to please release her", she said.

"It is our greatest hope that if someone has her, that they would just release her, and claim that money we have raised for her freedom", Calderwood said. "I don't know that I have the strength in me, and Mollie's lending me her strength".

In the meantime, Jack told ABC News he's "just taking it day by day". It's located about 3.5 hours from Brooklyn, Iowa, where Tibbetts was last seen. At this time, we still have not found Mollie.
