Search for Suzanne Morphew targets new area near Maysville after discovery of suspected personal item

Dozens of Chaffee County sheriff’s deputies and agents from the FBI and the Colorado Bureau of Investigation will comb an area near Maysville on Friday where investigators found a personal item they believe belonged to a missing female bicyclist.

The target search area is just west of County Road 225 and Highway 50, according to a Friday news release from Chaffee County Sheriff John Spezze.

Suzanne Morphew, 49, vanished Sunday while riding her bike, the sheriff’s office said.

More than 50 law enforcement agents will search for items or clues that may help identify Morphew’s whereabouts.

U.S. Highway 50 at Monarch Pass will be temporarily closed for an undetermined amount of time during the search.

At about 5:45 p.m. Sunday, a neighbor called Chaffee County’s communications center to report Morphew’s disappearance.

Family and friends are offering a $200,000 reward for information leading to Morphew’s safe return.

Anyone with information into her whereabouts is asked to call the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office tip line at 719-312-7530.
