WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. (CBS4) – Friends and family of Leann “Annie” Meyer are expanding their search for the 52-year-old.
The Wheat Ridge woman hasn’t been seen in more than a month. Her two vehicles were found near her home.
On Saturday groups gathered in her neighborhood to hand out fliers. Approximately 150 showed up.
Pat Meyer, Annie’s mother, says Annie would always call her n Minnesota every Sunday, but after a couple of weeks, the calls stopped coming.
“The next Sunday she didn’t call me, and so I called her and left kind of a nasty message on her machine and said, ‘Annie what’s a matter? Are you mad at me? How come you’re not calling?’ That’s all we heard, nothing, nothing from then on,” Pat Meyer said.
Friends and family fanned out with pictures of Annie hoping someone has a clue to help police and a private investigator the family hired. They went to her neighborhood and as far as Evergreen and the casino towns of Black Hawk and Central City. They even all the way to Vail.
There was also a report Annie’s roommate, Melissa Miller, took a lie detector test, but Annie’s brother says it never happened.
“If she has information, come and tell us, make a statement, do something. As far as we know that’s the last person who saw her as well. Let’s make it happen. It’s tearing on our family’s hearts, Annie’s brother Mark Meyer said.
Mark Meyer helped coordinate the search in consultation with police.
On Thursday, Miller’s father told CBS4’sr Brooke Rogers his daughter is upset by whatever happened to Annie.
“She’s been crying. She’s a temperamental girl. She’s upset. I mean her and Annie were real good friends,” he said.
“I’m not saying she hurt Annie … just saying she must know something,” Mark Meyer said.
