Evie Fordham | Politics and Health Care Reporter

The body of Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts has been located after she went missing on July 18, her father Rob Tibbetts told Fox News on Tuesday.

The news comes along with reports of a body found in a field in rural Poweshiek County in Iowa, reported KCRG. Tibbetts was last seen near the small town of Brooklyn, Iowa, which is located in Poweshiek County.

A “law enforcement source” told Fox News that Mollie Tibbetts’s body was found in Iowa. The Federal Aviation Administration put out a temporary flight restriction for parts of Poweshiek County and neighboring Iowa County at 9:20 a.m. Tuesday, reported The Gazette of Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation will hold a press conference at the sheriff’s office in Montezuma, Iowa, at 5 p.m. EST Tuesday afternoon, reported KCRG. A “significant amount of information will be shared,” officials said according to KCRG.

The $400,000 reward for her discovery will convert into a reward for “information leading to the capture of any suspects,” said Greg Willey, vice president of Crime Stoppers of Central Iowa, reported KCRG.

Mollie Tibbetts vanished after she went for a run near Brooklyn on July 18, reported Fox News on Wednesday. She was living at her boyfriend’s house at the time of the disappearance, but the boyfriend, Dalton Jack, was out of town the day she went missing.

Vice President Mike Pence had prayed with the family of the missing Iowa college student at Des Moines International Airport after he delivered a speech in Iowa’s capital city Wednesday. (RELATED: Mike Pence Prays With The Family Of Missing Iowa College Student Mollie Tibbetts)
