The search continues for 20-year-old Mollie Tibbetts, a student at the University of Iowa. The young woman went missing on July 18 after going out for an evening run.
Now, ABC News has reported that over 200 leads have been given in Mollie’s case. The officials on the case reported the number and while they did not give any details about the new developments, they did confirm that the search is still active.
Director of investigative operations for Iowa Department of Public Safety Kevin Winker said, “Law enforcement and hundreds of others have devoted countless hours to the investigation.”
He continued, saying that they have a “good timeline” to launch the search off of.
He said, “The timeline is obviously very important to us and it’s also been very important to us to get to know Mollie, and know what’s normal for Mollie, what’s not normal for Mollie.”
Officials also confirmed that canine searches have been utilized in this case and that they have been using undisclosed technology to gather clues as well. Previously, they had confirmed that they would be looking into her Fitbit to try to find more information.
Meanwhile, the timeline confirmations have been very unclear. The officials have not confirmed whether they actually believe that Mollie was taken while jogging or not.
Winker said he would “not draw any conclusions about the circumstances of her disappearance other than it’s not consistent with her past.”
