    Suzanne Morphew (49) missing from Chaffee County, CO since 5/10/2020

    https://www.thedenverchannel.com/new...-for-bike-ride

    The Chaffee County Communications Center received a report on Sunday at 5:46 p.m. regarding a missing woman in the area of County Road 225 and West Highway 50.

    The Chaffee County Sheriff?s Office responded to the area and talked with the person who had reported the woman missing. The person said a neighbor, Suzanne Morphew, 49, from the Maysville area, had gone for a bike ride in the area and hadn?t returned, according to the sheriff?s office. Maysville is about 3.2 miles east of County Road 225 along West Highway 50.

    The sheriff?s office called for help from the Chaffee County Search and Rescue (from both the south and north part of the county) and all parties began searching for Morphew.

    The Department of Corrections also responded and joined the search with tracking dogs, according to the sheriff?s office.

    The group ? which included more than 100 personnel ? continued into early Monday morning before pausing. The search resumed later that morning. On Monday morning, the county tactical team was called in to help too.

    Morphew had not been located by the late afternoon Monday, according to the sheriff?s office.

    Anybody who has information on Morphew?s whereabouts is asked to call the Chaffee County Sheriff?s Office at 719-539-2596 or Chaffee County Crime Stoppers at 719-539-2599.

    The husband of a missing woman is now offering $100,000 as a reward for information about her disappearance, a family member told CBS4. Suzanne Morphew was reported missing on May 10.
    On Wednesday, Sheriff John Spezze told CBS4 while it?s an open investigation, he would not rule out a criminal investigation. He adds the probability of an animal attack is not very high.

    The FBI and Colorado Bureau of Investigations are now involved.

    A neighbor first reported Morphew missing. Family says her husband was out of town on a trip to Denver at the time.

    Spezze would not confirm whether they had found her bike.

    Anyone with more information is asked to call the Chaffee County Sheriff?s Office at 719-539-2596 or Chaffee County Crime Stoppers at 719-539-2599.

    The reward for the safe return of a 49-year-old bicyclist who has been missing since Sunday in Chaffee County has been increased to $200,000.

    “Police and family are seeking any information that leads to her safe return, no questions asked, and offer a $200,000 reward,” according to a missing person’s bulletin.

    Missing woman Suzanne Morphew’s nephew, Trevor Noel, left a message with The Denver Post that said he would resume searching for her at 7 a.m. Thursday.

    A family friend matched the $100,000 reward offered by Morphew’s husband, bringing the total to $200,000, Noel’s message said. He did not identify the family friend.

    Her nephew, Trevor Noel, says Morphew’s bike was found but details about the condition of the bike have not been shared.
    Don't think is going to end well.

    Colorado police are zeroing in on a new area in their search for Suzanne Morphew after the discovery of a 'personal item' that is believed to belong to the missing mom.

    Morphew, 49, has not been seen since she set out on a bike ride from her home in Maysville on Sunday afternoon. Her neighbor reported her missing just hours later and search efforts began 'immediately'.

    Morphew's bike was recovered late Sunday night, but there were no other clues as to her whereabouts despite the deployment of drones and sniffer dogs.

    However, the discovery of the Morphew's personal item on Thursday may now help with a break in the case.

    Police have not disclosed what the item is, but say it was found near the junction of County Road 225 and Highway 50 - around 500 meters from Morphew's home. A trail is located close by.

    More than 50 people are now combing the immediate area trying to find anything else that may belong to Morphew. Highway 50 has been temporarily closed amid the search.

    You know, I thought the same thing when I posted that yesterday. Wonder if that's the same person that has put up the reward?

    I came to post that it's very strange that the neighbor noticed before that she is missing before the family.

    And it's a bit unusual that a neighbour could get a neighbour reported missing so soon and be taken seriously.

    Just want to join the chorus of folks who think it's unusual that the neighbor would report her missing after a few hours and be taken seriously. Maybe they made plans and she didn't show up or something.

    It's possible she saw the neighbor on the way out and mentioned she would be back in an hour or so....neighbor could've been worried when she didn't return. I am not close to my neighbors, but I know my dad's neighbors (the house I grew up in and am still close to them myself) are all very close and I could see one of them reporting my dad missing if this happened. Though, they would probably contact me first.

    She had to have had plans with the neighbor and never showed up. Look at this overhead of the community, large houses on lots set in the woods - no way a neighbor would notice another neighbor missing - you can't even see from one house to another. From the builder's sale site: Lots range in size from 5.85 acres to 12.7 acres. The homesites have a nice mix of Aspens and Evergreens, so fall colors are impressive! Private roads lead to private and secluded building sites.

    ETA: X marks the spot they found some of her personal effects. Somebody said hit and run, I think that's a real possibility. But after they hit her they took her with them.

    Barry Morphew, the husband of missing 49-year old Suzanne Morphew, is now speaking out about her disappearance.

    In a Facebook video released on Sunday, Morphew says, “Oh Suzanne, if anyone is out there and can hear this, that has you, please, we’ll do whatever it takes to bring you back. We love you, we miss you, your girls need you. No questions asked, however much they want – I will do whatever it takes to get you back. Honey, I love you, I want you back so bad.”

    On Sunday, May 17, members of the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office Dive Rescue Team searched water sites in the area.

    Chaffee County residents are being asked to preserve any and all video footage from devices such as Ring doorbells, security cameras, game cameras, etc., from May 8 through May 12.

    Residents are being asked to save the video, not send it to the sheriff’s office. As search areas are identified, investigators will contact residents in those locations to collect any camera footage.

    There's a theory that a family member phoned the neighbour and asked them to check on her.

    I was wondering why they were looking for video from the 8th to the 12th... are they sure she really went missing on the 10th.

    Come on gang, we got a mystery to solve!

    This has to be what happened. In a house that big, on a lot that big, neighbors aren't looking out the front window at people cycling by. Betcha it was her husband who asked neighbors to check on her.

    Nope, I don't think they are sure. This might mean the last time anyone can independently corroborate that she was alive was on the 8th. That might have been her husband when he left for Denver, or it could have been from a phone call to her mother, store video, etc. When did the husband leave for Denver, anyone know?

    Why can't I find this video? I can't explain why this statement disturbs me, I need to see it instead of read it.

    In a Facebook video released on Sunday, Morphew says, ?Oh Suzanne, if anyone is out there and can hear this, that has you, please, we?ll do whatever it takes to bring you back. We love you, we miss you, your girls need you. No questions asked, however much they want ? I will do whatever it takes to get you back. Honey, I love you, I want you back so bad.?

    Drama back in Indiana. This guy claims to have had run-ins with Barry Morphew on a contract job. He elaborates in the comments, but it doesn't sound nearly as dramatic as he makes it seem in his original post. Morphew was pissed and threw tools around (meh, it happens). Schmitz calls him a "bully." I dunno, adult guys calling other guys a bully always gives me pause. Apparently Schmitz (who is running for public office) did press charges but this response indicates he was the one charged with disorderly conduct:

    Everyone: as a close friend of Suzanne's, I beg you to copy/paste this poster to all of your social media and ask your friends to do the same. And continue following and posting the updates. I'm glad to see that Suzanne's story is being shared from Mr. Schmitz's post, but his agenda to gain a following from her suffering and to use a meaningful and powerful platform to instill doubt and misinformation should be alarming to those of you seeking to put him in public office, representing your best interests. He has utterly failed the Morphews by his claim to 'out' Barry during a time such as this. The State of IN charged Mr. Schmitz with disorderly conduct and he's already had his day in court, where he was able to air his grievances and defend his actions. Mr. Schmitz - the State didn't determine that you were a victim; and now is certainly not the time for you to do so when SO much is on the line for this family.

    Thanks, RBW.

    Experts would probably say his body language doesn't match the words coming out of his mouth. He shakes his head 'no' while professing his love and saying they need her back. He looks down and away when he says "I will do whatever it takes...." However, this is totally how I talk and act when I'm overwhelmed by events. I shake my head 'no' almost as a visual display of my loss for words, and my eyes search around, as if trying to grasp a coherent thought from the air around me (if that makes sense). He's a little more cool and calm than I would expect him to be, but he's a firefighter, they tend to stay cool under pressure; and of course, every one is different, and nobody prepares you for this, so HTF are you supposed to act, right?!

    From all appearances, they had a solid marriage - at least their friends and family thought so on FB. That doesn't mean anything, of course, but they remind me of a lot of people I know, and I would be genuinely shocked if any of them were suspected of disappearing their wife. Statistically, he's the most likely suspect; and we've all been around here long enough to raise a collective eyebrow at a husband who is conveniently out of town when his wife disappears - it has happened once or twice before. But I'm not ready to go there, I have too many unanswered questions. This could just as easily be a hit-and-run, a kidnapping/human trafficking event, a totally random stranger-on-stranger crime, or even some kind of fraud/hoax. I really don't know what to think of this; they have only lived in the neighborhood a very short time so I doubt it's some 'neighbor' thing.

    So many questions. Why did the neighbor report her missing? What/who raised the flag and why? Who found her bike and when? What condition was it in? Is the bike the "personal items" mentioned in the article? If not, what were they? Who was the last person to speak to her? When did her husband leave for Denver?

    I hope they find her soon.

    The Chaffee County Sheriff's Office is searching a residential property in Salida for clues into the disappearance of Suzanne Morphew, who went for a bike ride on Mother's Day and never returned.

    No additional updates will be provided during the search, according to a press release from the sheriff's office on Friday afternoon.

    The person who owns the property on the east side of Salida has been cooperative and is not connected to Morphew's disappearance, according to the release.

    Earlier this week, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) confirmed that investigators were holding Morphew’s home but did not say what they were searching for.

    At this point, Morphew’s disappearance is considered a missing person’s case. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is assisting CBI, and the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office is gathering information.

    She has been entered into NAMUS:
    https://www.namus.gov/MissingPersons/Case#/69682

    When this case first started I assumed it was something like an accident and they would find her (alive or not) in a few days. Now I am beginning to think it's more nefarious than that.

    I can't believe they've found her bike and a "small personal item" and that's pretty much the extent of this case after two + months.
