    The body of missing college student Mollie Tibbetts was found
    Tuesday, her father and two sources told Fox News, bringing an
    end to an intensive search that lasted more than a month and
    captured national headlines.

    Tibbetts' father, Rob Tibbetts, told Fox News the body found is
    that of his 20-year-old daughter, who vanished in mid-July.

    A law enforcement source earlier told Fox News the body was
    found in Iowa, but more specific details about the location were
    not released. Iowa Department of Public Safety said a body was
    discovered in Poweshiek County.

    Authorities believe they found the body of Mollie Tibbetts on

    Greg Willey, the vice president of Crime Stoppers of Central
    Iowa, also told the Associated Press the body found Tuesday is
    believed to be Tibbetts.

    No arrests have been announced in connection with the Tibbetts
    case. A news conference was announced for 4 p.m. local time on

    Tibbetts, a University of Iowa student, was reported missing
    after she failed to respond to messages from her boyfriend,
    Dalton Jack, and did not show up for work. She was last seen
    jogging around Brooklyn around 7:30 p.m. on July 18 and was
    staying with her boyfriend and working while home from school
    over the summer. She would have started her junior year of
    college this week.

    Tibbetts' family pleaded for her safe return and had remained
    hopeful she would be found alive. Rob Tibbetts was returning
    home to the San Francisco area after spending weeks looking for
    his daughter, The Des Moines Register reported Sunday.

    "The bottom line is somebody knows something," Rob Tibbetts
    previously told Fox News, adding Brooklyn is a small city and
    “you can’t do anything there without someone seeing it.”

    Investigators say they want to speak to anyone 'who was in the
    areas indicated on July 18, 2018 between the hours of 5PM and

    For the last month, investigators followed “hundreds” of leads —
    interviewing hundreds of people and canvassing a nearby hog
    farm, cornfields and other properties for traces of the college
    student. Two items Tibbetts typically took with her — a Fitbit
    and cellphone — remained missing.

    Investigators announced last week they were focusing the search
    on five locations in and around Brooklyn, which included a car
    wash just a block away from the city’s main commercial strip and
    a TA truck stop next to Interstate-80, which runs across the
    entirety of Iowa.

    Brooklyn, a town of just 1,400 people, was shaken by Tibbetts'
    disappearance. Blake Jack, the brother of Tibbetts’ boyfriend,
    told Fox News on Aug. 8 there was no sign of a struggle at the
    Brooklyn home she was staying in at the time.

    Robert Tibbetts says authorities are 'extremely motivated' to
    find his missing daughter, urges potential abductor not to
    escalate or drag out the ordeal.Video

    Dalton Jack, Tibbetts' boyfriend of two years, said he believed
    the doors of the home where his girlfriend last stayed had been
    left unlocked.

    “It’s Brooklyn. You don’t lock your doors,” Jack told Fox News.
    “We lock our doors now. Every night.”


    Rob Tibbetts stayed optimistic to the end, theorizing his
    daughter must have been with someone she knew and would return
    home safe.

    “It's totally speculation on my part, but I think Mollie is with
    someone that she knows, that is in over their head,” he told Fox
    News. “That there was some kind of misunderstanding about the
    nature of their relationship and at this point they don't know
    how to get out from under this.”

    Rob Tibbetts, Mollie's father, hands out posters in search for
    his missing daughter.

    A reward of nearly $400,000 leading to information on Tibbetts'
    whereabouts will now become a reward for information leading to
    the capture of any suspects.

    "Once they catch their breath, this will turn into a weapon
    going the other direction to catch the person who did it,"
    Willey said.
