WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. -- Police concluded a new search of a missing Wheat Ridge woman's home Tuesday and then announced they are confident the home is "not a crime scene."

Officers used a bloodhound to help with their search for clues about Lean "Annie" Meyer's disappearance. It's the second time they have searched the house.

Meyer hasn't been seen or heard from since Feb. 23, when the 52-year-old IT specialist didn't show up to work. Friends have been trying to find her, and her brother and sister recently arrived from California and Minnesota to help with the search.

Police are also trying to track down Meyer's two vehicles, which have also gone missing. Her silver 2009 Rav4 has a Colorado license plate, 975-YUH, and her 1995 Toyota pickup also has a Colorado plate, 688-DJH.

The disappearance of Meyer and her vehicles has her family and friends baffled. They say it's inconceivable to think she just ran off.

“She’s very dedicated to her work and always kept in contact with her friends," Luann Joecke, a friend from Pueblo, said. "This is not like her at all."

Complicating matters further is the fact that Meyer's roommate Melissa Miller is continuing to refuse a one-on-one meeting with police.

“We’ve spoken (with Miller) on the phone," Wheat Ridge Police Commander Dave Pickett said. "We’ve been trying to get a face-to-face interview. We’ve been unable to do that to this point."

Miller did tell police Meyer was with a woman named Kathy when she disappeared, though Miller was unable to provide a last name. Joecke thinks that story is fishy.

“I’ve spoken to quite few people and I talked to Annie three weeks ago," Joecke said. "I am not aware of a Kathy in her life.”

Police are urging anyone who knows anything about Meyer's disappearance or whereabouts to contact them at 303-235-2947.
