It’s been one month since 20-year-old Mollie Tibbetts disappeared from Brooklyn, Iowa and her father, Rob Tibbetts told KCRG-TV9 he has made the difficult decision to head back California.
Mollie Tibbetts was last seen jogging at about 7:30 p.m. on July 18. She was dog-sitting at her boyfriend’s house when she disappeared.
Since her disappearance, investigators have run down more than 2,300 tips and conducted numerous searches by land, air, water and using K-9s, but have found no trace of the University of Iowa student. A reward fund, started in partnership by Tibbett’s family and Crime Stoppers of Central Iowa, has collected more than $366,000 in donations for Tibbetts’ safe return.
Rob Tibbetts told local media outlets that he helped move his sons to college and the family is attempting to return to their day-to-day lives, but he continues to hold out hope law enforcement will bring his daughter back safe.
As soon as there is a development in his daughter’s case, Rob Tibbetts said he’d be on a plane back to Iowa.
