Officials combing through a hog farm and other properties in rural Iowa have found no trace of a missing 20-year-old college student last seen over a week ago.

Fox News reports:

As the search for Mollie Tibbetts continued Friday, Rick Rahn, a special agent in charge at the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI), told Fox News that they "anticipate additional sites" will come into the picture. 

“We’re looking at anybody and everybody that would lead us to locating her," he said, noting that “her missing is suspicious” and that authorities are “hoping to locate her sooner than later."

The Poweshiek County Emergency Management Agency said Tibbetts was last seen around 5:30 p.m. near Brooklyn, Iowa, on July 18, wearing a black sports bra, gym shorts and running sneakers.


The University of Iowa sophomore was staying at her boyfriend’s home at the time of her disappearance and was there to watch his dogs because he had a construction job about 100 miles northeast in Dubuque.

Investigators say with each passing day Tibbetts isn't found, the likelihood she was taken grows exponentially.
