Authorities in Kearney, Missouri are investigating a possible sighting of Mollie Tibbetts, a missing college student from Iowa. She said that it's the family's greatest hope that whoever may have Tibbetts lets her go and claims the "money we have raised for her freedom".

"That tipster then will have to. contact us back if a crime has been solved", he said.

As of 10 a.m. Thursday, $172,000 had been raised, Calderwood said. "This is a fight for our daughter", he added.

The family also praised law enforcement efforts as well as national and worldwide media coverage that has kept Tibbetts' disappearance in the public consciousness.

She announced an A$233,000 reward for her return.

"We exist for the other ones, who for whatever reason would not come and communicate any information to the police, either because they are guilty of something themselves or maybe involved in a crime", Willey said.

Tibbetts disappeared after going for a jog near her boyfriend's home in Brooklyn, Iowa.

Investigators, with the help of Federal Bureau of Investigation forensic experts, were tracking Tibbetts' digital footprint.

Police in Kearney, Missouri, said an employee at a truck stop reported Sunday that she saw someone resembling Tibbetts eating at a Taco Bell.

Investigators have been looking at various data, including social media and information from a Fitbit that Tibbetts is known to have.

Investigators say they have concluded that a woman spotted in northwest Missouri was not Tibbetts.

"The timeline is very important, obviously, to us, but it's also been very important to us to get to know Mollie and understand what's normal for Mollie, what's not normal for Mollie", Kevin Winker, director of investigative operations for the Iowa Department of Public Safety, said on Tuesday.

"Tibbetts is 5'2" and approximately 120 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing dark-colored running shorts, a pink sports top and running shoes of an unknown color.

In an unusual move, she even said the kidnapper could claim the reward money after setting Tibbetts free. "We are hopeful that she is still alive and so we will continue to think that way until told otherwise", Rahn told ABC News last week.
