Late on Sunday, May 24 the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office announced that the three-day search conducted at a residence on County Road 105 on the east side of Salida, in the case of the Suzanne Morphew missing person case, has concluded. Investigators with the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office, CBI and FBI went to the site to follow-up on leads developed during the course of the investigation.
Investigators searched several locations on the property; however, they were unable to make any connection to the Morphew case at this time. Details about the search are not available, as this is part of the active investigation.
The Sheriff’s office says the property owner was fully cooperative with law enforcement and not connected with the disappearance of Morphew. Suzanne Morphew, who went out for a bike ride on Mother’s Day and never returned, has been missing for two weeks. Her family and friends have offered a $200,000 reward.
“We will continue to follow-up on leads as they are identified and vetted by sheriff’s office investigators, the CBI and FBI,” said Chaffee County Sheriff John Spezze.
Hundreds of tips related to the case have been called to the designated tip line. The public is asked to continue to report any information about this case by calling 719-312-7530.
“Someone has that key piece of information in this case that will help us locate Suzanne, and I’m asking our community members to continue to use the tip line to provide any information, no matter how inconsequential the tip may seem,” said Spezze.
There are no searches set for Monday. Additionally, there are no plans for a media briefing on Monday.
