“A body was located yesterday in a secluded area near a point of interest,” a separate source told “We have reason and evidence to believe it is Mollie Tibbetts.”

Police previously pinpointed a car wash, truck top, and other areas around Brooklyn, Iowa — where the 20-year-old was last seen — as places of interest in the case.

Mitch Mortvedt with the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation told there will be a press conference at 4 pm outside of the Sheriff’s Office.

Brooklyn police told they could not confirm the shocking news.

Fox News first reported the discovery of the body.

Despite numerous leads, cops have not made an arrest in the case.

The family never gave up hope she would be found alive.

“We know how strong she is and how she never gives up in anything she does. I’m sure she’s fighting like hell to get back,” her brother Scott told exclusively.
