MONTEZUMA, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- Officials held a press conference Tuesday afternoon to discuss the investigation of missing University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts. Tibbetts disappeared from Brooklyn on July 18 with few clues as to what happened to the woman.

During Tuesday's press conference investigators said they are continuing to investigate the hundreds of leads they've received in the case but are being careful about what information they release to the public as to not compromise the investigation.

30-40 investigators are working on the case and have utilized ground, air and k9 units as part of their search.

Family members told our coverage partners at KCCI in Des Moines investigators found evidence she was using her laptop to do homework Wednesday, July 18.

Previously TIbbetts' boyfriend said she had Snapchatted him indoors that night as well.

Investigators say they believe they've narrowed down her digital footprint using social media and data from her Fitbit.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Poweshiek County Sheriff's Office at 641-623-5679.
