Volunteers searching for missing University of Iowa student

POLICE have been joined by concerned community members as they search for University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts, who was reported missing after she went out for an evening jog.

On Wednesday, July 18 around 10 p.m., Mollie Tibbetts sent her boyfriend a goodnight Snapchat message-and has not been heard from since.

She was reported missing after going for an evening jog.

A massive ground search involving more than 200 people broken up into 37 teams was conducted Friday, encompassing the farmlands and fields within a five-mile radius of Brooklyn, with helicopters hovering above, according to authorities.

The search continues for Mollie Tibbetts.

"We wanted to let (you) know that, at this time, we have no news to share about our efforts to find Mollie", Sandi Tibbetts Murphy wrote. According to Mollie's mother, Laura Calderwood, Mollie and her boyfriend were also planning an worldwide trip next month to attend a wedding.

Hundreds of volunteers have joined police in the search for a United States student who went missing while out jogging.

"She and her boyfriend Dalton were getting ready to go to the Dominican Republic on August 2nd to attend Dalton's brother's wedding", Calderwood told ABC.

"Everything's on the table, unfortunately", Poweshiek County Sheriff Thomas Kriegel told KCCI over the weekend.

"We're a close-knit community and I couldn't even imagine this happening to one of my kids". Her cousin Emily Heaston has set up a Facebook page to assist in finding Tibbetts.

Tibbetts works as an intern at the day camp at Grinnell Regional Medical Center. "Mollie is 5'2" and weighs 120 pounds, with long brown hair and brown eyes.

"It's frustrating; it's powerless", Kim Calderwood, Tibbetts' aunt, told The Register. The Poweshiek County Sheriff's Office has said the search for the 20-year-old is ongoing and additional information will be posted to social media accounts.

The outpouring of support can be overwhelming, Calderwood said, "in the best way, honestly - to know that you're cared about that way and she's cared about that way".
