Investigators hope data from a missing Iowa woman’s Fitbit may give them clues to her whereabouts after her disappearance last week. Mollie Tibbetts, 20, vanished on July 18 in Brooklyn, Iowa. On the day she disappeared, her brother dropped her off at her boyfriend’s house so she could dog-sit. Investigators said a neighbor saw her running later that night. Days after her disappearance, the search has intensified. The FBI joined the investigation this week, devoting as many as 15 agents to the search. Investigators have executed search warrants for her Fitbit, which she was known to wear, and her Snapchat, Instagram and Facebook accounts. Investigators hopes that information will give investigators details such as the route Tibbetts took before she disappeared.
