Roden, 23, was last seen Saturday. Her cellphone was found in a gas station bathroom in Mishawaka, and her parents have filed a missing person’s report on Monday.
Tippecanoe County sheriff’s Detective Bob Goldsmith said video from the Mishawaka gas station is supposed to show Roden leaving with a man and a woman. He plans to drive to the northern Indiana city this week to see the video.
Goldsmith said Roden does not appear to be coerced or forced into the car, and during a telephone interview with the clerk who was working, didn’t indicate that she appeared fearful.
But no one — family or friends — has heard from Roden since Saturday.
