Mollie Tibbetts’ dad urges any witness to ‘come forward,’ says ‘somebody knows something’ – Trending Stuff

The father of 20-year-old college student Mollie Tibbetts said in an exclusive interview with Fox News Channel Wednesday that “the bottom line is somebody knows something” regarding the mysterious disappearance of his daughter.

Rob Tibbetts, urging the public to come forward, said in a small city like Brooklyn, Iowa, “you can’t do anything there without someone seeing it.”

“Just come home, pie,” he said when asked if he has a message for Mollie. “We’re looking, we’ll find you. She’s a brave girl. She’ll be fine, just hang in there.”

“There is no information too trivial” to report to police, he added.


Tibbetts, a University of Iowa student, was last seen jogging in the Brooklyn, Iowa area on July 18.

Tibbetts said Mollie always carried her iPhone around and “like every other young person her age she is constantly online.”

But he said since she was last seen, the phone has not been tracked down, it’s not currently on, and she has not been responsive to messages.

“It’s absolutely not like Mollie to not respond to her phone,” Tibbetts told Fox News.

The case has drawn national attention and searches for Tibbetts, which have included properties such as a hog farm, have come up short. Police have not announced any suspects in her disappearance. She had been staying at her boyfriend’s home to watch his dogs while he was out of town for work.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the police tip lines at (800) 452-1111 or (515) 223-1400. The sheriff said the public can also send tips via email to [email protected]
