Twenty-year-old Mollie Tibbetts was known for being an avid runner. It was one of the last things she did before she disappeared on July 18.

As Dearly previously reported, Tibbetts was house sitting for her boyfriend, Dalton Jack, while he was on a work trip. She was living in the Brooklyn, Iowa home for the summer.

The last correspondence Jack said he had with his girlfriend was a snapchat message, which he opened around 10:30 p.m. that night.

Jack threw up red flags the morning of July 19 when his good morning text to Tibbetts went unanswered and she failed to show up for work.

Jack was cleared as a suspect early on in the investigation.

Brooklyn resident Devin Riley admitted to seeing Tibbetts while she was on her jog. He told ABC News that she would see her run down his street three or four times a week. Her hair was in a ponytail and she was using an armband to hold her phone.

One month and three days after the runner went missing, it is believed that she has been found deceased.

On August 21, investigators revealed that they believe they have found the body of the 20-year-old in Iowa. According to People, details regarding how she died or where she was found have not been made public. 

Investigators involved in the case are scheduled to hold a press conference at 5:00 p.m. this afternoon.

Those who were closest to Tibbetts, including her mother, father, and boyfriend, have yet to release a statement about the discovery of her body.

In the past, Tibbetts’ mom, Laura Calderwood, called her daughter’s disappearance “excruciating”:

“[There are] no words to describe how you feel when you don’t know where or how your child is.”

The FBI had a theory that Tibbetts was abducted by someone she knew. It’s unclear if that theory still stands.
