Authorities in Kearney, Missouri are investigating a possible sighting of Mollie Tibbetts, a missing college student from Iowa.
"Sometimes I just feel her sitting on my shoulder", she said.
"Let's keep at it. Let's go get her", said Rob Tibbetts, Mollie Tibbetts' father. Jack was out of town for work at his construction company, and she was at his Brooklyn home watching his dogs.
The reward was meant to "help facilitate the process of receiving information anonymously that we can use to pay for her or information that would lead to her location", she said.
Crime Stoppers of Central Iowa on Thursday said that the Bring Mollie Tibbetts Home Safe Reward Fund for information leading to her safe return reached $172,000 as of August 2, according to the Register. "I don't know that I have the strength in me, and Mollie's lending me her strength. It's another thing to say that we don't know who you are even if we wanted to know who you are", said Greg Willey, with Crime Stopppers of Central Iowa.
She said the money would be paid to anyone who provides information to Crime Stoppers of Central Iowa that leads to Tibbetts' safety.
Jack has said that he believes Tibbetts would have had both her fitness tracker and cellphone when she went out for her jog. Donations to the fund can be made through the Crime Stoppers website. "So, come forward, share that information with the authorities and let's bring Mollie home". "They've put together a very sophisticated investigation", he said of the police. He was working a construction job 100 miles away the night she disappeared.
Earlier this week, news broke that an employee at a truck stop in Kearney, Missouri believed she had seen Tibbetts last week, but after reviewing video surveillance tapes and interviewing witnesses investigators have concluded the possible sighting was not Tibbetts, according to local news station KCCI.
Tibbetts was last seen wearing dark-colored running shorts, a pink sports top and running shoes.
