Tibbetts is 5’2″ and weighs 120 lbs.  She has brown hair and brown eyes and was last seen wearing running shorts, a black sports bra, and running shoes.

Her boyfriend, Dalton Jack said, “She might have a FitBit on and she might have her cellphone, but obviously we’ve tried just calling her but it’s either off or dead so it would go straight to voicemail.”
