Roommate Of Missing Wheat Ridge Woman Dodges Police
WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. (CBS4) – Wheat Ridge police have sealed off the home of a 51-year-old woman and described the her disappearance as “inexplicable” so far.
They also say the woman’s roommate isn’t helping out in their effort to solve the case, and that they are hoping to talk to her about any helpful information she might have.
Leann Meyer has not been heard from since Feb. 23. She was last heard from when she was on a phone call with a friend.
“Her disappearance is for us right now inexplicable,” said Wheat Ridge police spokesman Dave Pickett.
Pickett said there’s no crime scene and no indication that Meyer was in danger. They said worried friends reported her missing. Those friends said missing work and not returning phone calls just isn’t like her.
“She had routines that she stuck to, but at this juncture no more,” Pickett said.
Police spent several hours Thursday searching Meyer’s house. They looked through documents and tried to learn more about her. Pickett said they are trying to find out “who she was, what her issues in life were — or if there were any — and how she would deal with those.”
After searching the home officers sealed the house off in hopes that they will find out anyone attempts to get in or out.
Pickett said his department has spoken to someone over the phone who they believe is Meyer’s roomate, but that person so far won’t meet with police.
“We certainly want to talk to Melissa Miller very much. But, you know, some people don’t like to talk to the police,” he said.
Meyer is described as a woman 5-foot-7, 130 pounds with blue eyes and brown/grey hair.
Both of Meyer’s vehicles are also missing. They are described as a 2009 silver Toyota Rav4 with the Colorado license plate 975-YUH and a 1995 silver Toyota pickup with the Colorado license plate 688-DJH.
Police said they are desperate for answers and ask that if information has helpful information they should call Wheat Ridge police at (303) 235-2947.
US Bank is offering a reward of $8,000 in conjunction with Crime Stoppers who is offering a reward of $2,000 for information that leads to the location of Meyers.
