A group of at least 100 people on Friday were searching for a 20-year-old University of Iowa student.

Mollie Tibbetts was last seen Wednesday in Brooklyn, a city near I-80 roughly 60 miles west of Iowa City, and the search is concentrated in that area.

Tibbetts was last seen wearing gym shorts, black sports bra, and running shoes while jogging near Brooklyn.

She was reported missing Thursday when she had not been heard from.

Tibbetts is described as 5'3" tall and weighing 120 pounds.

KCCI reports the Poweshiek County Sheriff has said the number of searchers has grown as large as it has because Tibbets’ disappearance is “out of the ordinary.”

Anyone with information is asked to call (641) 623-5679.
