A video of Mollie Tibbetts days before her disappearance has surfaced on social media.
Tibbetts, a 20-year-old college student at the University Of Iowa, went missing on July 18. She was last seen running in a rural neighborhood around 8:00 p.m. local time by a man who claims she ran past his home several times a week.
Not much has been uncovered about Mollie’s case since her bizarre disappearance. Her father has asked tech and social media companies to help him uncover any clues about her whereabouts leading up the day she disappeared.
It’s not clear whether companies like Snapchat or Apple have helped in this case yet, but a chilling video taken just hours before Mollie’s was released to the public on Thursday.
The video shows Tibbetts sitting on a gym floor on July 17 at Grinnell College, where she worked at a daycare in the summer. It was taken by her coworker who claimed Mollie was “always a positive energy around the day camp and the kids loved her.”
In another video taken July 3, Mollie can be seen dancing at a gymnasium at Davis Elementary, another nearby school.
Mollie’s boyfriend, who has been ruled out as a suspect, claims he last heard from her on the night she disappeared around 10:00 p.m. local time. He says she sent him a Snapchat where she appeared to be indoors but does not remember much else about the content of the message, which disappears after it’s opened.
Authorities have increased a reward of $300,000 for Mollie’s safe return.
