The Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office along with the Colorado Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation began an extensive investigation into the disappearance of Suzanne Morphew when she was reported missing from her home near Maysville, Colorado on May 10. That investigation has already included numerous unsuccessful searches.
Andrew Moorman, brother of Suzanne Morphew, is organizing an independent search in the area of Suzanne’s disappearance. This effort will begin on September 24th and continue for the next several days. Andrew will be leading several hundred volunteer searchers from various towns and states in his effort to find his sister.
The Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office and the Colorado Bureau of Investigation both indicate that they support this independent effort “although our team is unable to coordinate and lead this effort due to liability issues, we want to support this effort in several different ways. We certainly appreciate this huge undertaking and want to offer support to facilitate their efforts”.
Chaffee Sheriff John Spezze says that the Sheriff’s Office will be staffing their command post with liaison personnel to assist Moorman search members. “Our SAR units will be on hand to assist with Moorman search team accountability and other search team coordination issues. Our crime scene team will be available to document and collect any evidence if found. We will have both Chaffee County and CBI Case Agents on hand in this endeavor as well,” said Spezze.
