The mother of a missing University of Iowa student spoke with ABC's Good Morning America Friday.

Laura Calderwood spoke with ABC News Friday, July 27, 2018, about her daughter, 20-year-old Mollie Tibbetts, who went missing July 18.

20-year-old Mollie Tibbitts disappeared July 18 while she was dog-sitting at her boyfriend's house in the Poweshiek County town of Brooklyn.

On Friday, July 20, many people joined a search of areas around that town but didn't find anything.

Agents from the FBI and the Iowa DCI are helping with the investigation. The FBI is using Mollie's online history and cell phone app usage to try to pinpoint where she might be.

The agencies said they have not ruled out the possibility Mollie was abducted.
