Mollie Tibbets, a University of Iowa student whose disappearance a month ago triggered a massive search, has been found dead, according to multiple news sources.


Tibbets, 20, went missing more than a month ago after she went out for an evening jog. Fox News is reporting the body was found in Iowa but no other details were released.

A press conference with law enforcement will be held today at 5 p.m. CT. No arrests have been announced in connection to her disappearance and police will not confirm if the body found is indeed Tibbets.

Law enforcement have followed hundreds of tips in the search for Tibbets, with as much as $400,000 in rewards offered for her discovery. Dozens of people, including a local hog farmer, were interviewed during the search. The reward money is now expected to go to anyone with information leading to the arrest of suspects in Tibbets’ death.

Tibbets was last seen jogging near her home in Brooklyn, Iowa home. Her family reported her missing the next day when she didn’t arrive at work.
