DCI Agents Aware of Alleged Mollie Tibbetts Sighting in Missouri Say It’s Been ‘Handled’ Buttons to help find Mollie Tibbetts

However, was Tibbetts really sighted?

It's now been 15 days since anyone has seen the 20-year-old University of Iowa grad.

The day after police in Kearney, Missouri shared information about a possible sighting of missing Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts, investigators said it was not her after all. However, the possible sighting was actually reported to police the week before.

The story has gained national attention and the F.B.I.is assisting local police in the search.

The department said in a statement that it spoke to witnesses and reviewed video footage before forwarding a report to a task force investigating Tibbetts' disappearance. Kearney is about 25 miles (40 kilometers) northeast of Kansas City.

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. The investigative team was made aware of the posts this morning and have followed up appropriately. The reward fund, which the public can contribute to, has now reached $172,000. Please remember that ANY tips should be shared at the established tip line.

It isn't known how long Michael Gabel , seen here after surfing, has been dating Jack's estranged wife. Jack hasn't addressed the apparent drama on social media, and his reps haven't returned phone calls.

Mollie Tibbetts' parents believe she is alive.

However, a woman who wrote on Facebook that she was part of the discussion group where the claim originated cast doubts on its legitimacy in a post. Collum has joined hundreds of other volunteers in searching the area's cornfields and buildings for Tibbetts.

Collum said he often saw Tibbetts running in the neighborhood but didn't on the night she vanished. "We are very hopeful with the electronic data we are getting back", Mitch Mortvedt, assistant director of the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, previously told the Des Moines Register.

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

"Sometimes I just feel her sitting on my shoulder", she said. Her boyfriend was out of town for work, so she was alone in the dwelling.

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