Corbin also offers insight into Rob Tibbetts’ thinking, and where he believes his daughter can be.

“Of course, this is speculation at this point-but he thinks that they are in the house with someone they knew in some capacity, and that person might have misunderstood their relationship, thought it was too far, and the quote ‘in his head’, as he has told us,” she told Hemmer.

The conservation also touches on other important characters in the story — Mollie’s friend, Dalton, Jack; Dalton, the older brother of Blake, the man who is believed to have last seen Mollie that night, Devin Riley; and Wayne Cheney, a farmer in the area who spoke with the researchers about the case.
