Mollie Tibbetts missing: Did a University of Iowa college student who hasn’t been seen since going for a run four days ago meet with foul play or engineer her own disappearance? 

An Iowa community have joined police efforts to help find the whereabouts of a University of Iowa college student who has been reported missing four days since going for a jog.

ABC News reported Mollie Tibbetts, 20, going missing following a Wednesday evening jog in the small town of Brooklyn after leaving a house where she and her boyfriend had been dog sitting.

Told the missing woman’s boyfriend, Dalton Jack, ‘She might have a FitBit on and she might have her cell phone, but obviously we’ve tried just calling her but it’s either off or dead so it would go straight to voicemail’. 

Jack told of Tibbetts sending him a ‘routine photo’ over Snapchat the night she disappeared. It remained unclear why the missing girlfriend who had gone running circa 5.30pm earlier that evening sending Jack a social media post circa 10pm. It remained unclear if the post was accompanied by a message.

Tibbetts who is about 5-foot-2 and 120 pounds with long brown hair and brown eyes, was last seen wearing a black sports bra, gym shorts, and running shoes while on her job Wednesday night, according to the local sheriff’s office.

The Poweshiek County sheriff’s office said they are working with several other agencies to search for her.

The area near Brooklyn is largely farmland, with acres of dirt roads and cornfields. Hundreds of volunteers fanned out across the region on Friday and Saturday to help search for Tibbetts, without any sign of the missing woman. 

A regard of Tibbett’s

Tibbetts’ Facebook profile describes her studying psychology and having interned at the Grinnell Regional Medical Center. Her profile listed her living in Brooklyn and originally from Oakland, California.

‘This is not like her at all,’ Tibbetts’ aunt Kim Calderwood told WOI. ‘She’s a very responsible and conscientious young woman.’

‘We miss you, we’re looking for you and we will never stop,’ Calderwood added.

Not immediately clear is if there would have been any reason for Tibbett in not wanting to be found and simply fleeing the coup?

Of note, authorities have not alluded to any foul play. Yet.
