Details of what the briefing will entail were not provided, but a source said this is considered "significant news." No arrests have been made, according to the source.

"I am very hopeful that this is the break we have been waiting for," said Libby's mother, Carrie Timmons.

The teens were reported missing on Feb. 13, 2017. Their bodies were discovered the next day. Since then, police have received tens of thousands of tips in the case.

Early on, police released a photo and audio of the suspected killer that Libby recorded on her phone, with the suspect telling the girls to go “down the hill.” Police say Libby recorded more video and audio that they still haven't released.

Anyone with tips can call the tip line at 844-459-5786 or send an email to abbyandlibbytip@cacoshrf.com.
