Police say woman in Kearney was not missing Iowa student

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

More than 40 investigators are now working on the case to find Tibbetts, and they have received over 200 tips that they are following up on, authorities said. And he noted he didn't say in the statement that she had been seen on video from the truck stop.

Kevin Winker, the Director of Investigative Operations for the Iowa Department of Public Safety, did not offer any new information on suspects or leads. "We are told very little by the authorities for very good reason", he said, noting how police are hesitant to share information with anyone who could be connected to the case.

Rahn declined to say at the time whether investigators have found her FitBit or if they know its location.

Tibbetts, 20, disappeared after running on the night of July 18 while dog-sitting at the home of her boyfriend and his brother on the western edge of Brooklyn, a city of about 1,500 residents in central Iowa.

The mother of a missing Iowa college student is pleading for anyone who may have abducted her daughter to let her go and claim a fast-growing pot of reward money. 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.

"We really need someone to come forward now", her father told The Register.

Calderwood said that her daughter's family and friends set up the Bring Mollie Tibbetts Home Safe Reward Fund, at First State Bank in Brooklyn.

"Everyday I feel Mollie's presence with me". She called Tibbetts an "incredibly strong woman".

Mollie Tibbetts' mother, Laura Calderwood, believes she may have been abducted.

In the meantime, Jack told ABC News he's "just taking it day by day".

"Do the right thing and, you know, let her go", he added. She was last spotted jogging around 7:30 that evening, wearing gym shorts, a black sports bra and running shoes, the sheriff's office said.
