Idaho police hit with deluge of tips about Hyundai Elantra, now forwarding calls to FBI call center

Police are searching for a 2011-2013 Hyundai Elantra that was in the 'immediate area' of the quadruple homicide last month

The Moscow Police Department has been flooded with tips and leads over the past 24 hours about a white 2011-2013 Hyundai Elantra that was in the "immediate area" of the home where four University of Idaho students were murdered last month. 

Calls to the tipline will now go to an FBI call center better equipped to deal with the volume of information. 

"The global call center has the resources to take those calls, categorize them, and send them on to investigators so they can utilize those tips in the investigation," the Moscow Police Department said Thursday.
