Authorities with the Woodland Park Police Department are now offering upto $25,000 for information leading to the safe return of Kelsey Berreth.
A $25,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the safe return of missing Colorado mother Kelsey Berreth.
The Woodland Park Police Department announced the reward, which they say came from an anonymous donor, on Sunday in a press release.
Authorities say they spent part of the weekend using digging equipment to search the home and 35-acre property of Berreth’s fiance, Patrick Frazee. The search is now complete.
It’s not clear what authorities may have found there, if anything. A separate statement said in part, “Investigators continue to conduct interviews and this case remains our number one priority.”
Frazee says he last saw Berreth when she dropped their daughter off the day she vanished. The infant is in Frazee’s custody. Cops say the Teller County Department of Human Services was contacted and found Frazee posed no risk to the baby.
Frazee's lawyer, Jeremy Loew said Friday, "We encourage law enforcement to take whatever steps it deems necessary to find Kelsey Berreth and to be able to exclude Patrick Frazee as a possible suspect in this missing person investigation. Mr. Frazee will continue not to participate in any interviews with the media and instead focus on parenting the child he shares with Ms. Berreth."
The 29-year-old mother and flight instructor was last seen at a Safeway market on Thanksgiving Day. Surveillance video shows her pushing her 1-year-old daughter at the store.
Berreth’s mother reported her missing 10 days later. The last known location of her cell phone was in Gooding, Idaho, which is 700 miles away.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Woodland Park Police Department at 719-687-9262 or Kelsey@city-Woodlandpark.org.
