  • Police in Missouri respond to possible Mollie Tibbetts sighting

But it's still unclear what happened to the missing University of Iowa student.

On Thursday, investigators once again searched fields and ditches near Brooklyn, Iowa, where the 20-year-old vanished more than two weeks ago.

Police in Kearney, Missouri, say they've responded to a possible sighting of a missing University of Iowa student.

A property owner in the area said the multitude of police cruisers and emergency vehicles along Highway 21 between the towns of Guernsey and Deep River are connected to the search for Tibbetts.

However, Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation special agent Mike Krapfl confirmed Thursday that the reported sighting of Tibbetts wasn't substantiated and has been ruled out by investigators. Donations have poured in over the past few days and the family is now offering a $172,000 reward for information that will lead authorities to her.

The reward for information that brings Mollie Tibbets home has reached $200,000 as of Friday.

Coleman, whose three children and husband all drowned, said the captain of the boat told them they would not need life jackets . While the boat's driver on water, 51-year-old Kenneth McKee, survived; its driver on land, 73-year-old Bob Williams, did not.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers of Central Iowa at 1-800-452-1111. Laura Calderwood said during a news conference that she believes her daughter, 20-year-old Mollie Tibbetts, is alive but has potentially been kidnapped. "We feel this is the best approach because it gives us the best opportunity to resolve this case".

"This is a fight for our daughter", Rob Tibbetts said at Thursday's press conference.

Tibbetts was alone and dog sitting at her boyfriend's house at the time of her disappearance.

"It is our greatest hope that if someone has her, they will just release her", the emotional mother continued. Her name is Mollie Tibbetts, not Molly Tibbetts.

"It certainly helps in that we are able to help establish a timeline and that's certainly critical for any investigation like this", Rahn told ABC News in an interview last week. "And Mollie was an incredibly strong young woman and I don't know that I have the strength in me and Mollie is lending me her strength every day and every night", she said.
