Mollie Tibbetts, a 20-year-old Brooklyn resident, went missing mid-July after she went for a jog. Her family has been urging the community to assist in the search.


As reported by KMBC News, officials investigated a tip that Tibbetts was spotted on the Missouri 92 Highway near a popular truck stop, more than 230 miles from Brooklyn.

In a statement released to the press, the local police department confirmed that they 'conducted a thorough search of the area' and contacted witnesses in connection with the sighting.

They also retrieved video footage from the truck stop which will be analyzed. Read more on our Twitter account, @amomama_usa.


Only one person reported the sighting, but authorities are following up on every lead and will leave no stone unturned. However, Sgt. Joe Kantola hinted that it's unlikely for Tibbetts to have been at the truck stop.

The team is busy reviewing more than 200 leads collected during the initial stages of the investigation, and her family is still hoping that someone might come forward with pertinent information.


The task force said they would be collecting data from Tibbetts' personal electronic devices, such as her laptop and GPS-enabled fitness tracker.

They are also analyzing her social media accounts, correspondence, and other digital avenues, hoping that it would point them in the right direction

Tibbets was dog-sitting at a friend's house when she disappeared. Volunteers and search teams scoured the area for more than a week but could find no trace of Tibbetts.


She was last seen wearing black running shorts and a pink sports top. Tibbetts has long brown hair, brown eyes; she weighs approximately 120 pounds and stands 5 foot 2 inches tall.

Posters are being distributed around Brooklyn and can be picked up from Total Choice Printing. Anyone with information about her whereabouts can contact the sheriff's office on 641-623-5679.
