    Thanks, SheriBerry, I found it and listened. You're right. She did say 470th right before the video cut off. I think she must have misspoken as the overwhelming reports are at 460th. (Still only 1 mile from turnoff to WC's house and the well inspected pig [ping?] farm.)

    It seemed like when she said 470th it was coming out as a question? Anyone else get that?

    Mollie’s loved ones must be devastated and the community will be too. I just hope there is enough evidence to prove what happened and who did it, it is a real concern if Mollie’s remains have been exposed to the elements and wildlife all this time. I’m so sorry to type this.

    I always thought Mollie looked so much like her Dad in photos. Her loved ones did everything they could to find her. I was hoping with all of you that she would be the exception to the statistics and would be found alive.

    IMHO, based only on LE's assertion that they were "confident in their timeline", and my best guess, Mollie left a fairly precise digital footprint and LE chose to pursue more of a technological search as opposed to a physical one. Also, much of that area is private property and they'd need the owners' permission OR a search warrant to canvas the area the old-fashioned way.

    Agreed - statistics and Occam's Razor tell us that she likely has been there the entire time. So sad...knew it would end this way but still just UGH. Her poor family, especially her dad.

    It probably is a private road as google maps will not let me go up the road with the arrow. I'll bet the perp(s) dumped MT there in hopes that wildlife would take care of the evidence (poor MT). Having said that, the body probably wasn't there long if they can still recognize that it is her that fast without a thorough autopsy.

    See if you can find on the internet the press conferences conducted by former Charlottesville PD Chief Timothy Longo during the Hannah Graham case. Not quite, but close. He also lectured whoever was listening and knew something to step forward.

    If people insist on naming names that are not from MSM or LE, this thread could get shut down.

    Now I'll just sit on my hands and wait for the press conference. Patience....

    I am so sorry to hear this, lets hope an arrest is coming. I think it is. There will be a lot that
    still be gleaned and they will know what they are looking for and who.

    Don't think it's private. It is a dirt road and a lot of times the Google car won't go up dirt roads.

    "SHE'S NOT JUST A FLYER," THE BOYFRIEND OF THE MISSING IOWA WOMAN SAYS. PEOPLE SHE HAS TOUCHED THROUGHOUT HER 20 YEARS SHARED THEIR FAVORITE STORIES WITH THE REGISTER.
    Luke Nozicka, Des Moines Register

    Published 7:16 p.m. CT Aug. 20, 2018 | Updated 9:13 p.m. CT Aug. 20, 2018

    Mollie Tibbetts' parents liked the name Grace. At the hospital in San Francisco, they didn't know if their middle child would be a boy or girl. Waiting to find out was an old-school approach — romantic and spontaneous.

    But when they looked at her for the first time, they decided she wasn't a Grace, after all.

    “Well, she’s more of a Mollie,” Rob Tibbetts remembers saying. .....

    People in Brooklyn, a town of about 1,500 residents 70 miles east of Des Moines, say Tibbetts' disappearance has brought out the best in their city. Days after she vanished, at least 200 people gathered for a vigil at the high school, including people with no connection to Tibbetts.

    Friends video-called Alexis Lynd, 19, who was vacationing in Florida, from the vigil. Lynd came home early from the trip; she could not enjoy it without knowing where Tibbetts was.
    She's nurturing. She's a Harry Potter fan. We all know Mollie Tibbetts' face, but her friends and family say she's so much more.

    late edit:

    Minutes before the thread closed last night I read/shared this beautiful recap of Mollie's short life, and was so moved by the love and admiration Mollie garnered from all who crossed her path. I asked Mollie to come home. I waited until noon today to confirm the news already felt in my heart. Rest easy sweet Pie. May your Mum and Dad one day find peace.

    Encourage all to read and remember this story of how Mollie lived, and not how she left us.

    So the land owners didn't check their own property for a month while knowing she was last seen 15 miles away and properties were being checked?

    She has since tweeted 460th, so when she said 470th she was mistaken.
