Indiana Police Investigate Possible Link in Moms’ Disappearances

iStock/Thinkstock(BOONVILLE, Ind.) -- The mysterious disappearances of two Indiana moms who vanished within weeks of each other could be linked, according to police.

Police say they are actively investigating any possible connection between a pair of women who vanished about 20 miles apart.

“It doesn’t happen frequently that we have two women of the same age group that go missing around the same time,” Warrick County Sheriff Brett Kruse said.

Police say they have nothing linking the disappearances at this point, but investigators on both cases are comparing notes daily.

One of the women was last seen at 1:30 a.m. Friday leaving a Boonville VFW club. Surveillance footage shows what police believe is her car heading in the direction of her home. Authorities haven’t noticed any activity on her bank accounts, and “no evidence pointing towards any type of struggle,” Kruse said.

Meanwhile, the second woman was last seen July 9 leaving a party in Evansville, about 20 miles away. She, too, has disappeared without a trace, and her mother is grief-stricken.

“She’s faced a lot of different challenges in her life, and we’re very worried for her right now,” the second victim's mother said.

Both families are pleading for the public’s help, reassuring their grandchildren that they won’t stop searching.

“It’s been difficult to keep one foot in front of the other,” the mother of one of the victims said. “But we are doing that, and we will find our daughter.”
