Family and friends released her home videos of the missing Mollie Tibbetts to keep her search alive.


The new videos documented the magnetic personality of the missing Iowa jogger. One of the videos was captured a day before she went missing.

20-year-old Tibbetts hit the road for a jog on the evening of July 18 in Brooklyn, Iowa. She was staying with Dalton Jack, her boyfriend, for the summer.

Mollie never returned home from the jog and was reported missing the next day when she did not show up at work.

The officials said that they received numerous tips from people around the area. They were also analyzing surveillance videos from businesses spanned across Brooklyn and around the jog routes taken by Mollie.

In the video taken a day before her disappearance, Mollie was seen playfully avoiding the camera as she hid her face with a portable mirror.

In another personal video that was taken in 2016, Mollie was speaking about faith and prayer and the impact that prayer had on her life.

The police officials held a press conference on Monday but did not release any specific details about new developments regarding Mollie's case. However, they assured that the search for the 20-year-old was active.


The director of investigative operations, Kevin Winker, said that the law enforcement and many other people have been working hard to find Mollie.


The data from Mollie's FitBit cloud account was also examined by the Iowa Department of Public Safety, but they were not willing to share it in public.

Mollie's father Rob Tibbets said that he was not concerned about how he or his family felt through this episode. He wanted people to think and contribute to the efforts that are put in to find Mollie.

The family has announced a reward of more than $300,000 for information on Mollie's disappearance.
