Family of missing mother asks public for help
CNN —  

Family and friends are asking for the public’s help in finding a 29-year old Colorado mother who mysteriously disappeared in late November – days before she allegedly sent text messages from her phone.

A week after that, she was reported missing. Woodland Park police began their search on December 2, when Berreth’s mother, Cheryl Berreth, alerted them of her daughter’s disappearance.

Woodland Park Police began their search on December 2, when Berreth’s mother, Cheryl, alerted them of her daughter’s disappearance.

Berreth had been living near Woodland Park, Colorado since 2016, and worked as a flight instructor at Doss Aviation in Pueblo.

On November 22, she met her fiancé, Patrick Frazee, to drop off their daughter. Police say surveillance video of Berreth shopping with her daughter that day at a Woodland Park supermarket was the last time she was seen.

Woodland Park Police Chief Miles De Young said at a press conference that Berreth’s employers received a text from her phone on Sunday, November 25, stating that she would not be able to come to work that week.

Kelsey Berreth’s phone was tracked to a location near Gooding, Idaho, and Berreth has family in that state, De Young said. Gooding is roughly 800 miles northwest of Woodland Park.

Frazee, her fiancé, also received a text from her on November 25. Police have not revealed what that message said.

The shortage of public details about Berreth’s disappearance have raised many questions on social media.

Berreth’s mom attended a police press conference Monday, asking the public to share a Facebook page she helped create to raise awareness.

“She’s not the kind that runs off,” Cheryl Berreth said. “This is completely out of character. Kelsey loves her God, she loves her family and friends, and she loves her job. She’s reliable, considerate and honest.”

Police said they haven’t yet identified any suspects but added there is no threat to the surrounding community. De Young said the department is treating this as a missing person case and is asking the public for tips.
