Investigators are offering no new details in their search for a University of Iowa student who vanished more than two weeks ago. Her family reported her missing the next day after she didn't show up for work.

The day after police in Kearney, Missouri shared information about a possible sighting of missing Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts, investigators said it was not her after all. An Iowa task force is investigating. Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation special agent Mike Krapfl confirmed Thursday, Aug. 2, 2018 that the reported sighting of Mollie Tibbetts wasn't substantiated and has been ruled out by investigators.

Investigators said she disappeared on July 18.

Yesterday, the reward for information leading to Tibbetts' safe return increased to $30,000.

Crime Stoppers of Central Iowa spokesman Greg Willey promised to protect the anonymity of tipsters who call in or submit tips online, saying the group uses software that scrubs identifying information.
