Investigators have blocked off roads around a rural farm in Guernsey, Iowa on Tuesday.

Several police cars and emergency crews are on the scene right now. Our sister station WOI-TV has a news crew there. Guernsey is about a 15 minute drive away from Brooklyn, the last place Mollie Tibbetts was seen on July 18. 

Mollie is  the 20-year-old University of Iowa student who was last seen on a run in mid-July. Her family has been searching for her ever since. Dozens of DCI, sheriff’s deputies, and FBI agents have been working on the case, looking for Mollie all over Poweshiek County.

A press conference with investigators is going to be held Tuesday at 4 p.m.
