Mollie Tibbetts’ father leaves Iowa to go home

Iowa News

After spending a month helping pass out fliers, attend press conferences, and help out other family members look for his missing daughter, Rob Tibbetts has returned home to his job and life in California.

Tibbetts said he has not lost hope in finding his daughter, Mollie, the missing 20-year-old Brooklyn woman. 

“I still feel that way, we all feel that way, that’s why it’s difficult for me to knowing there’s a good chance that we’re going to bring her home,” said Tibbetts. “I want to be there when she arrives.”

Tibbetts said that he’s coming back the moment there’s a development in the investigation. There has been a huge influx in tips, according to Tibbetts. More than 2,300 have been passed on so far.

The reward for Mollie’s safe return has been growing every day. Since Crime Stoppers of Central Iowa partnered with the Tibbetts family, it’s now up to $395,000.
