IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Investigators believe they have found the body of Mollie Tibbetts, a University of Iowa student who has been missing for more than a month.

The 20-year-old woman was last seen July 18, jogging in her hometown of Brooklyn in central Iowa.

Greg Willey, the vice president of Crime Stoppers of Central Iowa, says a body found Tuesday is believed to be Tibbetts.

No information has been released about where the body was found.

Willey says a nearly $400,000 reward fund for her discovery will now become a reward for information leading to the capture of any suspects.

Officials say a significant amount of information will be shared.

Richard Rahn, a spokesperson for the Iowa DCI said they are not commenting on an ongoing investigation.

Iowa DCI says they plan to release a press release later this morning.

She is a 20-year-old student at the University of Iowa.
