Events to Honor Missing Colorado Woman as Disappearance Anniversary Nears
No one has seen Suzanne Morphew in nearly a year, but the community has not forgotten about her.
The 49-year-old Chaffee County woman disappeared on May 10, 2020, after allegedly going for a bike ride and never coming back.
Since then, the Chaffee County Sheriff's Office (CCSO) has released little information about Suzanne's case. Despite rampant rumors surrounding her husband, Barry Morphew, the agency has not identified any suspects in the investigation.
Although Suzanne was presumed dead in her father's obituary, she is still listed as a missing person — a fact that keeps the community tirelessly searching for closure.
According to FOX21, there will be a bench dedication and a balloon release at the Poncha Springs Visitor Center (7010 U.S. Highway 285) at 7 p.m. on April 30, which is Suzanne's 50th birthday.
Another event will take place at 4 p.m. on May 2 in her hometown of Alexandria, Indiana. There, a second bench will be dedicated in her honor as local family and friends celebrate her birthday.
The last update on Suzanne's case surrounded the family home, which Barry sold on March 3. Law enforcement had previously searched the residence twice.
In January, CCSO said that they "continue to vigorously pursue all leads." If you have any information about this case, please call the designated tip lie at (719) 312-7530.
