September 24, 2020 search for Suzanne Morphew


Salida, Colorado
September 10, 2020

On May 10, 2020 Suzanne Morphew was reported missing from her home near Maysville,

The Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office along with the Colorado Bureau of Investigation and the
Federal Bureau of Investigation began an investigation into the disappearance of Suzanne Morphew immediately.

As part of this investigation numerous searches were conducted however Suzanne has yet to
be located.

Andrew Moorman, brother of Suzanne Morphew, is organizing an independent search in the area of Suzanne’s disappearance. This effort will begin on September 24th and continue for the next several days. Andrew will be leading several hundred volunteer searchers from various towns and states in his effort to find his sister.
The Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office and the Colorado Bureau of Investigation want to support this effort. Although our team is unable to coordinate and lead this effort due to liability issues we want to support this effort in several different ways. We certainly appreciate this huge undertaking and want to offer support to facilitate their efforts.
We will be staffing our command post with liaison personnel to assist Moorman search members. Our SAR units will be on hand to assist with Moorman search team accountability and other search team coordination issues. Our crime scene team will be available to document and collect any evidence if found. We will have both Chaffee County and CBI case Agents on hand in this endeavor as well.
As with any major undertaking it takes many different resources to complete a task and we
once again appreciate the Moorman Search effort and its many volunteers.
Thank You
John A. Spezze
Chaffee County Sheriff
