It has been two months since Chaffee resident Suzanne Morphew was reported missing in Chaffee County. In that time, investigators have followed up on hundreds of tips and conducted a number of searches in an effort to locate Ms. Morphew, who was reported missing on Mother’s Day, May 10, 2020.

In addition to countless interviews conducted in the last two months, more than 600 tips have been called into a designated tip line, and many searches have been performed throughout the county.

On July 9, 2020, local, state, and federal investigators returned to search the Morphew property west of Salida for any additional information related to Ms. Morphew’s disappearance.

“This case remains very active, as more than a dozen investigators are aggressively working this case on a daily basis,” said Chaffee County Sheriff John Spezze. “And until we determine what happened to Suzanne, we can’t discount any scenario or formally eliminate anyone from suspicion.”

The public is asked to continue to report any information about this case by calling 719-312-7530.

This is a far-ranging missing person investigation. In addition to the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office, they are being assisted by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

To date, no arrests have been made, and Ms. Morphew has not been located.
