Black SUV was seen circling neighborhood where Mollie Tibbetts vanished

But again he declined to say whether Tibbetts is believed to have returned home safely from a jog that evening.

A black SUV was seen circling the Iowa neighborhood where Mollie Tibbetts was staying on the night she vanished, a neighbor revealed to Fox News on Sunday, in what could be a new clue to the college student's disappearance.

Authorities on Sunday said they've been following up on "hundreds" of leads in the case.

Farmer insists he has nothing to do with the 20-year-old student's disappearance; Matt Finn reports from Brooklyn, Iowa.

"The first night she went missing, I was distraught", Calderwood told CNN affiliate KCCI in Des Moines. The area is about a 20-minute drive from Brooklyn, where Tibbetts was last seen jogging July 18. "I don't remember what they asked me".

Tibbetts was scheduled to travel with her boyfriend, Dalton Jack, to the Dominican Republic in early August for Jack's brother's wedding but that event has been canceled amid the search for the missing student. She was reported missing the next day, after she didn't show up for work.

A mysterious SUV was seen in her neighborhood, a neighbor says.

'We lock our doors now. He added that he was frustrated by the scrutiny he came under when she disappeared.

'I did for like the first week and a half. And then, yeah, straight to voicemail, ' he said.

"We've been searching ponds, fields, even from the air", said Winker. However, Kevin Winkler of the Iowa Department of Public Safety, said at a press conference that he was unable to confirm any items of Mollie's had been found and her mother told UK Daily Mail that she found two of Mollie's red work shirts in her house but is not sure if there ever was a third.

"We're providing this fund to provide some financial incentive for someone who's otherwise reluctant to come forward", he said Thursday.

'I'm either going to be headed up to heaven or down to hell, depending on the result.

Tips can also be submitted via Crime Stoppers of Central Iowa which has collected $172,000 so far in donations that will be available as a reward for information leading to Mollie's safe return.

Crime Stoppers can be contacted anonymously at 1-800-452-1111 or via their website.
