Fitbit Data Scanned for Missing Iowa Jogger

Investigators are scanning social media and Fitbit in an effort to trace a missing 20-year-old jogger.

University student Mollie Tibbetts vanished over a week ago near her hometown of Brooklyn, Iowa. She was last seen on an evening run.

Friends say she is an avid runner, and always wears her activity-tracking device when exercising.

The FBI have joined the search, and are now sifting through her electronic data.

Mitch Mortvedt, of the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, said on Wednesday that investigators had executed search warrants of her Snapchat, Instagram and Facebook accounts, in addition to her Fitbit.
