WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. (CBS4)– The brother of a missing Wheat Ridge woman, who vanished in February, tells CBS4 he thinks his sister is dead.
There seems to be no trace of Leann “Annie” Meyer after she was last seen on Feb. 7. Although investigators are tracking phone calls and text messages sent from Meyer’s phone after that date.
In March police found her SUV and pickup truck in different locations just miles from her home.
Meyer has eight brothers and sisters who have been very involved with local searches in hopes of finding her. Some are still hoping for her safe return.
But Mark Meyer believes she is never coming home and just wants to know what happened to her.
“We do feel that Annie has passed. Even though it is a missing persons case still it has moved more towards a homicide case,” said Mark.
He said he has struggled to accept what he has feared the most even though police have yet to confirm what he suspects- that his sister is dead.
“Makes you cry,” said Mark.
He has returned to Wheat Ridge to get more information about Annie’s disappearance. His latest meeting with detectives revealed some new information.
“They told me that they will have answers this week of where we can send our search parties out to. Places that we need to look for, where the cell towers are used and we’re very interested in that,” said Mark.
Annie’s home is covered with missing posters in hopes that someone will call police with information.
Several yellow ribbons are still tied around the trees on her property from last week’s vigil.
Mark continues to wear a T-shirt with Annie’s photo on it, hoping that someone, somewhere will help lead them to her.
“I think we just want closure. That’s the most important thing. We find the body, maybe we’ll have a crime scene, maybe we’ll have a better investigation of what happened,” said Mark.
But until then, Mark said he won’t give up the search for her, “Just give me a clue. Just five me some kind of clue where I can find you.”
Annie’s roommate, Melissa Miller, has refused to cooperate with police.
Crime Stoppers and U.S. Bank are together offering a $20,000 reward for information that would lead to Annie Meyer.
