Vice President meets with missing student's father

- The father of missing college student Mollie Tibbetts says the meeting he, his sons and Mollie's boyfriend had Wednesday with Vice President Pence was very “touching” and “genuine,” and Pence came across as “just another father that was just hurt and bewildered by Mollie’s story.”

Rob Tibbetts told Fox News the meeting, which lasted around 15 to 20 minutes at a National Guard station in Des Moines, happened after law enforcement partners called him and said Pence was in Iowa for an event and wanted to talk to him.

“He just expressed in a very private way his compassion. It was very genuine and it was real. It was very touching,” Tibbetts said about the meeting.

“I got the sense that it was not a politician at all, it was just another father that was just hurt and bewildered by Mollie’s story just like everybody else in America,” Tibbetts added.

Rob Tibbetts' 20-year-old daughter vanished on July 18 in the Brooklyn, Iowa area, sparking an investigation that's captured the nation’s interest.
