The body of missing Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts was found in a location within the state on Tuesday, two sources told Fox News.

Tibbetts was reported missing late last month, after she was last seen jogging on July 18 in the rural town of Brooklyn.

The 20-year-old's disappearance launched an extensive search that garnered national attention.

Tibbetts' father and her boyfriend had repeatedly pleaded for her safe return and for anyone with an iota of information to come forward.

Fox News correspondent Matt Finn said on "America's Newsroom" that the two sources would not identify where Tibbetts' body was found.

He added that the nearly $400,000 reward for information on her whereabouts will now be used to find whomever is responsible for her death.

Tibbetts' father, Rob, had just returned to his home in California after coming to Iowa for that past month to assist in the search for his daughter.

Tibbetts was set to return to the University of Iowa this fall.
