Police Use Cadaver Dog In Search Of Missing Woman’s Home
WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. (CBS4) – After more than a month, police in Wheat Ridge police say the disappearance of a 51-year-old resident remains a mystery.
The search for Leann “Annie” Meyer took a strange turn on Tuesday as police took a cadaver dog to her home.
It was the second time investigators have searched the house, which remains sealed. Meyer’s two cars are also missing and her roommate — Melissa Miller — has hired a lawyer and is not talking to police.
“We’ve run what’s called a cadaver dog through the property. And next we’ll have crime scene analysts do a search,” Wheat Ridge police spokesman David Pickett said.
Investigators looked for forensic evidence that can’t be seen by the naked eye. But after their search there were only more questions. Police say they found nothing that indicates the home was the scene of a crime.
“We have no good tips and we haven’t found anything on the vehicles,” Pickett said.
Police say the last time Meyer had a confirmed contact with anyone was Feb. 10. There was one phone call and a number of text messages from her phone after that, but investigators said they aren’t sure it was actually Meyer who was sending them.
Police said they still have many people to talk to besides Miller. Some of Meyer’s family members are in town and plan to help investigators with the search. Friends have also been involved in the search for Meyer, and plan to do another organized effort to spread the word about her disappearance this Saturday.
Crimestoppers and US Bank together are offering a reward of $10,000 for information that leads to the location of Meyers.
Meyer is described as being 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.
