CHAFFEE COUNTY — The Chaffee County Sheriff's Office said Thursday that in the two months since Suzanne Morphew was reported missing, investigators have followed up on hundreds of tips and conducted several searches in an effort to locate her.

Morphew was reported missing on Mother's Day, May 10, 2020. So far no arrests have been made, and she has not been located.

On Thursday state, local, and federal investigators returned to the Morphew property, located west of Salida, to again search the area for additional information related to her 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 Colorado Bureau of Investigation and Federal Bureau of Investigation are assisting the Sheriff's Office with the case.

Anyone with information is asked to call 719-312-7530.

The Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office said it will release information related to the investigation as it becomes available.
