'Mollie's lending me her strength': Mollie Tibbetts' family announces $172,000 reward fund

There was a possible Mollie Tibbetts sighting in Missouri

The Mollie Tibbetts search turned up a red shirt near an Iowa pig farm this week and, while it is not clear whose shirt it was, Fox News reported confirming that the missing college student worked at a day care where the uniform includes red shirts.

By Thursday afternoon search teams were back in the area, combing the nearby fields for any trace of the missing girl, according to Fox News.

Tibbetts, 20, disappeared after going for a jog near her boyfriend's home in Brooklyn, Iowa.

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.

Richard Rahn, special agent in charge of the Iowa Department of Public Safety's Division of Criminal Investigation, said data from Tibbetts' FitBit, a GPS-enabled activity tracker, has been "helpful" and could be "key" in locating her.

Authorities say they've followed up on more than 200 leads related to her disappearance.

She told reporters at her daily news conference that Trump was not indulging in obstruction of justice by issuing such a tweet. Along with their defense of collusion, Trump and Giuliani have begun personal attacks on Robert Mueller , the special counsel.

"Come forward, share that information with the authorities, and let's bring Mollie home", Rob Tibbetts, Mollie's father, said.

Jack stood with Tibbetts' family at a press conference in Brooklyn Thursday morning, where her parents announced that they believe she is being held captive and the reward for her return has increased to $172,000.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers of Central Iowa at 1-800-452-1111. "We feel this is the best approach because it gives us the best opportunity to resolve this case".

The University of Iowa sophomore was last seen July 18 on her nightly run.

This is a developing story; we'll keep you updated.

But he said, "I'm confident we have a solid timeline that we're working on" - though he added that they weren't releasing that information just yet. "Just do the right thing and let her go", Jack said. "We are deeply appreciative of the partnership with law enforcement and media".
