Police looking for missing college student Mollie Tibbetts looking at her computer, social media

BROOKLYN, Iowa (Fox 32 News) - The search for a missing University of Iowa student continued over the weekend with forensic examinations of her computer and social media accounts.

Mollie Tibbetts, 20, was last seen on Wednesday evening in Brooklyn, Iowa. Tibbetts is 5'2", approximately 120 pounds, with long brown hair and brown eyes.

A Facebook page managed by family said that investigators are looking at her interactions with people online.

"We have to remember that it’s not just the stuff on Mollie’s computer and social media, but also chasing posts and messages from others back to their source and getting all that identified and verified, then assessed for further follow up or not," a relative wrote on Facebook. "I know patience is not our best virtue right now, but it will take time." 

The search is being managed by the Poweshiek County Sheriff's Office. Tips can be shared through (641)623-5679.
