CHAFFEE COUNTY – The search for a missing Chaffee County woman is expanding and gaining more resources. The Colorado Bureau of Investigation, FBI, 11th Judicial District, Salida Police Department and Fremont County Sheriff have now joined the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office in investigating the disappearance of 49-year old Suzanne Morphew, who lives in the Maysville area.
