SALIDA, Colo. (KDVR) – Investigators with the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office, Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) are conducting a search at a residential property on the east side of Salida for missing Chaffee County woman, Suzanne Morphew.

The property owner is fully cooperative with law enforcement and is not connected with the disappearance of Morphew.

About 5 p.m. Friday, the sheriff’s office issued the following statement:

“In response to widespread rumors, the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office relays that Ms. Morphew has not been located and there have been no arrests in the investigation.”

Morphew was reported missing on May 10 and has not been seen since. Deputies say they spoke with a neighbor who said 49-year-old Morphew had reportedly gone for a bike ride in the Maysville area and didn’t return home.

No details about the search are being released at this time.

Authorities said an update will be provided at the conclusion of the search.
