Morphew Remembered and Honored on 50th Birthday

May marks one year since a Chaffee County woman’s disappearance. Suzanne Morphew went missing on Mother’s Day, May 10, 2020.   

Morphew would have celebrated her 50th birthday this past Sunday.   

In honor of her memory and birthday, a balloon release took place at the Poncha Springs Visitors Center.   

The Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office says it has received over 1,100 tips about Morphew’s disappearance, conducted 180 interviews, conducted at least 130 searches, and spent at least 4,000 hours investigating the case.   

There have been no arrests made in connection to her disappearance.  Her husband, Barry, claims his wife went for a bike ride on Mother’s Day and never came back.
