Law enforcement presence along Poweshiek County highway


A law enforcement presence could be seen along Iowa Highway 21 in Poweshiek County on Thursday afternoon.

According to a report by Local 4’s CBS affiliate, KGAN, Brooklyn Fire Department crews were sent out along the highway between Guernsey and Deep River at about 8:30 a.m.

It’s unclear if this response is connected to the search for missing University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts.

Tibbetts was last seen July 18 after she went for a jog.
