Desperate search for missing mom of two children who vanished from ransacked home

Police are searching for a Colorado mom, last seen on Dec. 4 at her Fort Collins home. Authorities are asking the public’s assistance with any information that could help locate her.

FOX News reports that on Dec. 8, a friend contacted authorities after not hearing from Kimberlee Graves, 41, for four days. They requested a welfare check to her home off of Akin Street, where police found no one in the home and Graves’ vehicle missing. Her car was later found abandoned in a parking garage. It’s still unclear whether Graves’ two children are believed to be with her. A few days later, the same friend who reported her missing visited the home herself, where she found it ransacked.

“I keep sharing her stuff on Facebook and put it out there,” neighbor of nine years, Daniel Cordova, said on Monday, according to 9News.

According to Kate Kimble, public relations manager for Fort Collins police, the circumstances in which Graves disappeared are suspicious, yet authorities haven’t found any evidence to suggest that Graves was physically injured.

“There’s no evidence that would indicate injury to Kimberlee, but because of the kind of suspicious circumstances, we are asking the community’s help to locate her. “We need to cast the nest a little wider to find out if anyone in the community might know where she might be.”

Anyone with any information on Graves’ whereabouts should contact the Fort Collins Police at 970-416-2825 or Tipsters can also contact Crime Stoppers of Larimer County at 970-221-6868 or
