Home of missing Chaffee County woman released back to family

Investigators said they are continuing to follow up on the more than 400 tips received about Suzanne Morphew.

CHAFFEE COUNTY, Colo. — The home of missing Chaffee County woman Suzanne Morphew has been released back to the family after investigators seized it last week, the Chaffee County Sheriff's Office (CCSO) confirmed Tuesday.

Authorities said they are continuing the investigation and have received more than 400 calls to the tip line designated for collecting information. The number is 719-312-7530.

Morphew, 49, left her Maysville home on Sunday, May 10 for a bike ride and never returned. Maysville is located west of Salida by way of U.S. 50.

CCSO, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) searched several locations on a property on County Road 105 in Salida to follow up on leads developed during the case, but were unable to make any new connections, CCSO said earlier.

Morphew’s disappearance as of now is considered a missing person’s case. 

Shortly after her disappearance, investigators searched the Mayville area after deputies found a personal item belonging to Morphew. Dive teams also searched nearby bodies of water, with no results.

Morphew’s husband, Barry, on May 17 posted a video message to Facebook begging for his wife’s return.

“Oh Suzanne, if anyone is out there that can hear this, that has you, please, we'll do whatever it takes to bring you back," Barry Morphew said in the video. "We love you. We miss you. Your girls need you."
