May 23, 2020 CHAFFEE COUNTY, Colo. —

Despite rumors circulating online, the Chaffee County Sheriff's Office confirmed Friday afternoon that Suzanne Morphew, a missing woman from the county, has not been located and there have been no arrests in connection to her disappearance.

The Chaffee County sheriff made this announcement at 5:08 p.m. Friday, specifically confirming that "in response to widespread rumors" Suzanne hadn't been found. Suzanne, 49, has been missing since May 10, which was Mother’s Day, from the Maysville area in Chaffee County. The Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Federal Bureau of Investigation have joined search and investigation efforts. That day, a neighbor called 911 to report that she had gone for a bike ride and never returned that day.

On May 15, Chaffee County Sheriff John Spezze said investigators had discovered an item on May 14 that could possibly belong to Suzanne while searching the area west of County Road 225 and U.S. Highway 50 outside of Maysville.

6/25/21 UPDATE
On may 5th, 2021 Barry Morphew, Suzanne's husband was arrested for her murder.  For more, read the article linked below.
