Police searching for a missing Colorado woman are asking her neighbors to preserve any doorbell camera footage from the days leading up to Suzanne Morphew’s disappearance.
CBS 4 Denver reports that authorities in Chaffee County are asking Maysville residents to save any video footage from doorbell or other surveillance cameras taken on May 8 through May 12. Morphew, 49, disappeared on May 10, which was mother’s day. A neighbor called police to report that Morphew had not returned from a bike ride that day, and authorities launched an immediate search.
The Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office has advised residents not to sent the footage to investigators, but to preserve it in the event that authorities request to review the footage.
According to the report, family members have confirmed that Morphew’s husband Barry Morphew was in Denver on May 10. His Facebook profile lists his occupation as a firefighter, and a source who worked with him in Indiana told CrimeOnline that he was a landscaper there, before the family moved to Colorado roughly two years ago.
On Sunday, Barry Morphew posted a video plea for the safe return of his wife, indicating that he believed she may have been kidnapped.
Earlier in the week, Barry Morphew put up a $100,000 reward for information leading to his wife’s safe return, an amount that was matched by an unidentified family friend.
Another relative told CBS4 Denver this week that police had recovered Morphew’s bike on May 10, the same day she disappeared. The Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office has not confirmed this, though the sheriff said in a press conference on Friday that investigators had recovered an unspecified personal item during their search for Morphe on Thursday.
Anyone with information is urged to call the tip line at 719-312-7530.
