Loved ones are concerned after two Brookville women went missing during a trip to New Mexico.
Robyn Renee Bodine and her friend Tracie Shoe, both from Brookville, went on a trip to Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, about two hours south of Albuquerque, to stay at the Riverbend Hot Springs.
Bodine’s daughter Taylor Moberly said Bodine and Shoe had been friends for several years.
Moberly said her mom, while outgoing, was a “homebody” so she was surprised when she came to her and said she wanted to go on a trip.

She shared vague details about the trip with Moberly, saying she heard about Riverbend Hot Springs and wanted to go for a birthday trip. Bodine’s birthday is March 29.
The two women left from Cincinnati on March 25 and flew to Phoenix where they stayed for a day, according to Moberly.
They arrived at the hot springs on March 27 and sent family pictures, Moberly said.
The two women checked out of their hotel Tuesday before 11 a.m. and were supposed to board their flight and arrive in Cincinnati around 6 p.m. — but they never did.
Jennifer Lightcap, a lifelong friend of Shoe, said the last information they have is that the women were planning to go on a hike before going to the airport.
Lightcap and Moberly have not been able to get in contact with the women since Tuesday morning.

“The phone goes straight to voicemail. It does on both ends, it does for both phones... we’re not sure if a battery has gone dead or what has happened. But they are not responding, not answering on social media,” Lightcap said.
Moberly said the silence and unknowns have been “miserable.”
“Just want my mom home I want Tracie home for her kids. It sucks … you feel useless because there’s nothing I can do,” she said.
Their rental car, described as a white Toyota sedan with Texas license plate PJK9413, has also not been returned.
After 24 hours, Moberly and her step-father filed a missing persons report.
The Federal Bureau of Investigations has confirmed they are aware of the missing persons’ investigation and working with local law enforcement and FBI agents in New Mexico, according to a spokesperson for the FBI’s Cincinnati branch.
The Brookville Police Department also confirmed they have been aware of the missing women and are in contact with the family.
Anyone who may have information about where Shoe and Bodine are can contact 937-833-2001 or Truth or Consequences Police Department at (575) 894-7111.
