A woman who was last seen at work in Murfreesboro on Monday, July 21st was spotted in New Orleans. 30-year old Elizabeth Brooke Roberts was last seen around 11:00 on Monday morning at Harpers Point Luxury Apartments, where she works. Her Toyota Sequoia was then located parked at the Cason Lane Greenway Trailhead.
Murfreesboro Police later told WGNS that 25-year old Noah Bodwell was also missing. He was last seen by neighbors on the morning of the 21st.
On Friday, Murfreesboro Police informed WGNS that security at a New Orleans casino spotted the two via a security video. According to investigators, both individuals appeared to be acting on their own free will and neither person appeared to be under duress.
Investigators believe that the two parked Roberts' SUV at a Murfreesboro greenway trailhead because it was a safe location to leave the vehicle.
WGNS confirmed that the case will remain open until law enforcement makes contact with the two so they can be removed from NCIC.
