A candlelight vigil was held on Thursday night for the Colorado mother who vanished without a trace three weeks ago, as police are expected to offer a reward for information about her mysterious disappearance.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Kelsey Berreth, 29, disappeared on November 22 after meeting her fiancé Patrick Frazee to hand off their 1-year-old daughter. She was last seen in public at a Safeways supermarket near her Woodland Park home. Authorities released video showing her and her daughter in the supermarket that Thursday.
Three days later, on November 25, messages were sent from Berreth’s phone to Frazee, and to her employer, Doss Aviation, explaining that she would not be coming to work that week. That same day, her cell phone pinged near Gooding, Idaho, which is 600 miles from her home,
According to CBS Denver, authorities have found no evidence that Berreth has been in Idaho.
Berreth’s mother Cheryl Berreth reported the young woman missing 10 days after her disappearance. In an interview with the Today show on Thursday, Cheryl Berreth said her daughter sounded “happy” and “normal” during their last phone conversation on Thanksgiving Day, and that she had asked her mother for a recipe.
“I can’t think of anywhere she’s gone where she hasn’t told me,” Cheryl Berreth said. “It’s just not in her character to do something, to just take off and be gone.”
The missing woman’s mother also said Kelsey had a good relationship with Frazee, who has declined to speak to the media. Frazee and Berreth reportedly do not live together.
“They’re loving,” Cheryl Berreth said.
A lawyer for Frazee released a statement earlier this week on behalf of his client, saying that Frazee has been cooperating with investigators and has provided authorities with potential evidence. According to the Today show report, police have confirmed Frazee is cooperating.
CBS Denver reports that concerned members of the community joined friends and family at a vigil in Woodland Park Thursday night. Police are expected to announce a reward for information about Berreth’s whereabouts on Friday.
Berreth is white with light brown hair, 5’3” tall, and weighs 110 pounds.
Anyone with information about Berreth’s whereabouts is urged to call the Woodland Park Police Department at (719) 687-9262.
