Large reward offered for information on missing University of Iowa student

Missing Iowa student's boyfriend 'Just imagine if somebody had taken your Mollie'SHARE:sharetweetshareemail

Tibbetts was last seen jogging two weeks ago in Brooklyn, where she was staying at her boyfriend's house to look after his dogs while he was out of town.

Investigators say they have concluded that a woman spotted in northwest Missouri was not Tibbetts.

The reward for information that brings Mollie Tibbets home has reached $200,000 as of Friday. She hasn't been seen since going for an evening jog on July 18 in Brooklyn, a community of about 1,400 people where she was living. Calderwood believes it's possible that someone took her daughter.

"It is our greatest hope that if someone has her, they will just release her", the emotional mother continued.

Part of the investigation involves a reported sighting of Tibbetts at a truck stop in Missouri, about 380 kilometres away from her hometown.

Police in Kearney, MO said an employee at a truck stop reported Sunday that she saw someone resembling Tibbetts eating at a Taco Bell.

Calderwood said the family is partnering with Crime Stoppers of Central Iowa, a local volunteer-run organization that assists in solving crimes, "to help facilitate the process of receiving information anonymously".

"If they're listening then I would just like them to know... imagine if this was you". He would not say whether investigators have any suspects or persons of interest.

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. "We feel this is the best approach because it gives us the best opportunity to resolve this case". "I don't know that I have the strength in me, and Mollie's lending me her strength". She said the money would be paid to anyone who provides information to Crime Stoppers of Central Iowa that leads to Tibbetts' safety. "We are hopeful that she is still alive and so we will continue to think that way until told otherwise", Rahn told ABC News last week.
