  • Facebook									Mollie Tibbetts family has launched an extensive search for the missing Iowa college student

"Do the right thing and, you know, let her go", he added.

When asked whether he had a message for his missing daughter, her father, Rob Tibbetts told HLN, CNN's sister network, "Just hang in there, pie".

Investigators had been looking into a report of a woman who looked like Tibbetts at a truck stop more than 200 miles from where she was last seen two weeks ago. He said she stayed at his Brooklyn house alone and watched his dogs.

Mollie Tibbetts was last seen jogging on the evening of July 18 in Brooklyn, a small town in Iowa where she had been living over the summer. "It seemed like a totally normal night", he said on "GMA".

Investigators say they have concluded that a woman spotted in northwest Missouri was not a missing Iowa college student. The Kearney, Missouri, police department said on Wednesday that they responded to the possible sighting on July 26.

The family said no information is too little when it comes to tracking down Tibbetts.
