The search for a missing Maysville woman which began May 10, continues. As of May 13, investigators from the 11th Judicial District, Colorado Bureau of Investigations, the Salida Police Department, the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have joined the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office in the effort.
Suzanne Morphew, age 49, from Maysville was reported missing late the afternoon of May 10, after failing to return home from a bike ride in the area around CR 225 and West U.S. Highway 50. The Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office responded and a search began immediately.
Over the past four days, more than 100 search personnel from Chaffee County Search and Rescue, Department of Corrections, and the Chaffee County Combined Tactical Team have scoured the area. The search has deployed numerous drones and eight different tracking and scent dogs from the Department of Corrections and the Search and Rescue Dogs of Colorado.
Members from Colorado Parks and Wildlife and the South Ark Swiftwater Rescue Teams have searched area watersheds and Reach Air Ambulance has been called in to fly search missions as well.
The extensive search has not yet located Morphew. A dedicated tip line has been established by the Colorado Bureau of Investigations. That tip line number is 719-312-7530.
Anyone with any information into the disappearance of Morphew is asked to call the tip line.
