  • Police in Missouri respond to possible Mollie Tibbetts sighting

Fox News has confirmed search teams were looking through ditches about a mile away from the reserve, near the same farm that FBI investigators were said to have searched for almost two hours last week.

More than 200 leads have been collected as part of the investigation, police said.

Kearney, Missoui police responded on July 26 to a possible sighting of Tibbetts, 20, at a truck stop in the area, police told KSFY News affiliate KMBC.

And the family's plea now comes with a large reward: $172,000 for information leading to Tibbetts' safe return, the family announced Thursday.

The Iowa college student from small-town Brooklyn has been missing since Wednesday, July 18, 2018. "Just do the right thing and let her go", he said.

Police in Kearney, Missouri, said an employee at a truck stop reported Sunday that she saw someone resembling Tibbetts eating at a Taco Bell. At least 40 individuals and businesses have contributed to the reward fund, according to Greg Willey, VP of Public Relations for Crime Stoppers Of Central Iowa.

Fire officials warned that the blaze would probably burn deeper into urban areas before there was any hope of containing it. More than 3,000 fire personnel are battling the flames with more than 300 engines and 17 helicopters, Cal Fire reported.

Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation special agent Mike Krapfl confirmed Thursday that the reported sighting of Mollie Tibbetts wasn't substantiated and has been ruled out by investigators.

"It is our greatest hope that if someone has her, that they would just release her and claim that money we have raised for her freedom", Tibbett's mother Laura Calderwood said at a press conference Thursday.

The family also praised law enforcement efforts as well as national and global media coverage that has kept Tibbetts' disappearance in the public consciousness.

Family members have urged the public to come forward with any information, "the bottom line is somebody knows something", Tibbetts father, Rob, told Fox News.

"If they're listening then I would just like them to know... imagine if this was you. 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.
