WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. (CBS4) – Friends and family of a missing Wheat Ridge woman are holding a fundraiser on Friday for Annie Miller.
The gathering is being held to raise funds for Annie Meyer’s family as well as to raise money for Crimestoppers, and it’s also meant to be a celebration of Annie Meyer’s life. It is taking place in her Minnesota hometown.
Meyer disappeared in February. Friends and family recently have started circulating a petition demanding that police step up their search effort and that authorities talk to Meyer’s former housemate.
Melissa Miller has said she won’t talk to police. She hired a lawyer after the disappearance.
Some friends took matters into their own hands. They recently found and confronted Miller themselves.
A source who witnessed the confrontation told CBS4 Miller admitted to abandoning Miller’s SUV, which police would later find a mile from the home the two shared. She said she did that because the house was locked.
Miller said also said there was blood in the vehicle, and that it came from a bloody nose that Meyer had.
Kyle Rasberry, a family friend of Miller’s who spoke with CBS4, said Miller “is not doing well.” He said he doesn’t think Miller has anything to do with the disappearance.
Meyer’s friend Tammy Haselhorst told CBS4 she’d “love to have (Miller) come help us.”
“If you don’t have anything to hide, then come on, let’s go,” she said.
Wheat Ridge Police said the case is their top priority.
“We’re not quitters. We’ll never give up looking for her,” her mother Pat Meyer said. “It’s just been very difficult waiting for answers and we hope it’s soon.”
