A video of Mollie Tibbetts taken the day before she disappeared shows the college student was in good spirits – and that she was her “normal, outgoing, happy self,” Tibbetts’ friend tells Fox News.

The video was recorded July 17 and posted on Snapchat by Olivia Ritter, who described herself as Mollie’s co-worker and friend. Tibbetts, the 20-year-old University of Iowa sophomore, was last seen jogging in the Brooklyn, Iowa area the next day.

In the video, Tibbetts, wearing a tie-dye shirt, is seen sitting on the floor of the art gallery at Grinnell College, about 15 miles west of Brooklyn, Ritter said. Tibbetts is shown laughing, putting up a small mirror to her face and sticking out her tongue.

The article goes on to state the following:

“She was totally normal that day,” Ritter told Fox News on Wednesday. “All of her actions were the same as they had been previous days. She hadn’t been talking about anyone suspiciously or randomly. She was her normal, outgoing, happy self.”

A separate video of Tibbetts taken in 2016, posted on the Facebook page of her aunt on Aug. 1, showed her talking about the power of prayer in helping her achieve positive results at a cross-country running meet when she wasn’t feeling her best physically.

“I just remember waking up and being so nervous because I hadn’t run in a meet for over a week…and just thinking how am I going to do this?” Tibbetts told an audience gathered at the track.

“I got down and I prayed and I asked God to give me the strength to make it through it and to tell me what to do, to help me out with whatever happened and to know what his plan was,” she said.
