Investigators, the Brooklyn community and really the entire country are still waiting for word on Mollie Tibbetts. The University of Iowa student disappeared almost three weeks ago and authorities say they still don't have any answers.

Rob Tibbetts pointed out, there was no sign of foul play or disturbance at the home she was staying at, so naturally, his mind is coming to any conclusion possible.

"A lot of what I think is what a distraught father with too much time and too much imagination but I don't think anyone is set out to harm Mollie," said Rob Tibbetts.

Mollie's father told TV9, he still remains optimistic that his daughter's disappearance will end on a happy note.

"I think there's genuinely a logical way home for Mollie," said Rob Tibbetts. "Whoever does have her is confused at this point, as the investigation has escalated to a national level."

"Someone who doesn't mean to harm Mollie, but doesn't know how to end this situation," said Rob Tibbetts. "Doesn't know how to extricate themselves from this. Is fearful from the consequences."

Mollie's boyfriend, Dalton Jack says he's trying to stay busy and leave the work to the authorities.

"It's all about her, my feelings don't matter it's all about her," said Jack.

Even if there's another scenario like somebody's out there that knows what happened, Mollie's dad said it's only a matter of time before she's found.

"It's a little town. We're all from Iowa," said Rob Tibbetts. "We all know what a small town is like. Someone knows exactly what happened and they just haven't come forward."

Jack said he misses his best friend.

"I just miss talking to her pretty much," said Jack. "She's the one person in the world that I told everything to."

Both hope they can all look back on this and laugh after she's finally brought home safe and sound.

"She's going to have to drive the car around with all those magnetic stickers all over it, and wear the T-shirt's and pull all the store signs off as her punishment," said Rob Tibbetts.

"I love you, I miss you and everybody wants you to come home, including me. Especially me," said Jack.
