Search for Mollie Tibbetts continues a month after her disappearance

U.S. & World

MONTEZUMA, IA (KWWL) Investigators have added a new tool to provide updates and receive tips on the case of missing University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts.

On Monday, investigators revealed the launch of a website dedicated specifically to the search. On it, an interactive map highlights five locations of interest to investigators. 

“It will hopefully generate some ideas and thoughts. No specific reasons for those certain areas, but we are hoping people will look at the map and be able to jog their memories basically,” said Iowa Department of Criminal Investigation Special Agent in Charge Richard Rahn. 

Locations on the site include 385th Avenue and the D and M Car Wash, both in Brooklyn. Investigators also highlighted the TA truck stop on Highway 80, but not the Pilot Travel Center to the east. 

“I don’t have any specifics for it but I can tell you that is something we are looking into and keeping an open mind on. I know that Trafficking is something that’s discussed on a regular basis,” said Rahn when asked if the area had a history of human trafficking.
