FORT LUPTON, Colo. (CBS4) – Friends and family of a missing Fort Lupton mother are pleading for help and police have few clues.
Friends describe Dedra Boggs, 43, as a caring, outgoing and an amazing mother.
“She is such a firecracker that to think of her being scared, or hurt, or cold, or alone somewhere, and we can’t find her, is terrifying for us,” Boggs’ friend Beth Lowry said.
A week ago friends say Boggs went to work on Mother’s Day but was never heard from again. She left work at Denver International Airport around 2:30 p.m. Phone and credit card records indicate she then went to a Walmart near the airport and made a purchase. Friends say Walmart’s surveillance video shows her inside the store, but they don’t know if she was alone.
“Her phone got located in Central City, tapped off one of the towers, so we drove up there and found her car Tuesday evening,” Lowry said.
At the Dostal Alley casino in Central City an employee told CBS4 their surveillance video does not show Boggs entering the casino, nor did she register at the hotel.
It was a chain of events completely out of Boggs’ character, according to friends.
“It’s very overwhelming, frustrating, sad. The unknown is terrible. It’s a terrible feeling,” Lowry said.
“Contact someone — doesn’t even have to be family or friends, to know that she’s okay. We’ll wait for her and I won’t quit fighting until I find her,” family member Myki Christopherson said.
