Landfill in Fountain might now be included in search for Kelsey Berreth

FOUNTAIN, Colo. -- A landfill in Fountain is now possibly included in the search for Kelsey Berreth.

The 29-year-old mother was last seen at a Safeway store in Woodland Park on Thanksgiving with her 1-year-old daughter. While authorities believe she is dead, her body has not been found.

Her fiance, Patrick Frazee, is accused of killing Berreth in her Teller County home and is facing murder charges. He was arrested in late December and remains in jail in Teller County.

"The Colorado Bureau of Investigation contacted Waste Management of Colorado regarding a potential search at Midway Landfill and we are cooperating fully," Waste Management said in a statement, adding any inquiries should be forwarded to the Fourth Judicial District Attorney's Office, which covers El Paso and Teller counties.

Waste Management did not explicitly specify the purpose of the possible search. There is no word on the timing of the search of the landfill, which isĀ about 20 miles southeast of Colorado Springs.
