The FBI is joining the search for a missing University of Iowa student. 

Mollie Tibbetts, 20, disappeared last week. Her boyfriend said she had gone jogging last Wednesday and never returned. 

The sheriff says every home, farm and shed in Brooklyn, Iowa has now been searched or visited. 

The FBI is using computer forensics, looking at things like her online history and her use of cellphone apps in an effort to pinpoint her location.
