DEVELOPING: Investigators return to search home of Suzanne Morphew, 2 months after Colorado mom vanished on Mother’s Day weekend

“And until we determine what happened to Suzanne, we can’t discount any scenario or formally eliminate anyone from suspicion,” the sheriff said

The Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release Thursday that investigators have returned to Suzanne Morphew’s residential property in Maysville, Colorado, for an additional search.

Morphew, 49, was reported missing on May 10 when she did not return home from a reported bike ride. Multiple investigative agencies conducted a massive search of the mountainous central Colorado area where Morphew went missing, but did not locate her. The sheriff’s office confirmed that investigators did find a personal item belonging to Morphew, but did not disclose any further details.

In May, investigators conducted a three-day search of a residential property believed to be connected to the landscaping business owned by Suzanne’s husband Barry Morphew. The intensive search yielded no evidence in connection to the missing woman’s disappearance. Authorities also served a search warrant at the Morphew’s home, but released the home back to the family in late May.

On Thursday, investigators returned.

“On July 9, 2020, local, state, and federal investigators returned to search the Morphew property west of Salida to once again search the area for any additional information related to Ms. Morphew’s disappearance,” the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release Thursday.

The statement did not mention if a specific tip or another development led to the second search of the property. A spokesperson did not immediately respond to follow-up questions.

“This case remains very active, as more than a dozen investigators are aggressively working this case on a daily basis,” Chaffee County Sheriff John Spezze is quoted as saying in the news release.

“And until we determine what happened to Suzanne, we can’t discount any scenario or formally eliminate anyone from suspicion.”

The Chaffee County Sheriff’s office has encouraged members of the public who may have information related to Suzanne Morphew’s disappearance to call the dedicated tip line at 719-312-7530.
