CHAFFEE COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – The husband of Suzanne Morphew released a video pleading for his wife’s safe return. Suzanne disappeared one week ago on May 10 after a bike ride.

“Oh Suzanne, if anyone is out there that can hear this, that has you, please, we’ll do whatever it takes to bring you back,” said Barry Morphew. “We love you. We miss you. The girls need you. No questions asked. However much they want, I will do whatever it takes to get you back. Honey, I love you. I want you back so bad.”

Sunday night, the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office announced the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office Dive Rescue Team searched nearby water sites. They did not say whether they found any clues, but say their search for Suzanne continues.

The Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office also asked neighbors to preserve their surveillance video, if they have any, from May 8-12. They ask you not to send it in, but instead hang onto it in case an investigator reaches out.

Investigators found Suzanne’s bicycle the day she disappeared.

The area where searchers have focused is not far from the Morphew home in Maysville. Morphew and her husband Barry have owned the home for two years. Barry Morphew is a volunteer firefighter in the community. He posted $100,000 dollars in reward money, which has been doubled by a family friend to $200,000.

    Strange, why assume she’s been taken? She could have been hit by a car while riding, she could have taken a trail when she got off her bike and gotten lost? Strange the assumption that she’s been taken – just odd.

      Michelle, are you serious? When an adult gets lost in a residential area, they don’t go missing unless they’ve been TAKEN. Where do you think she was riding her bike, the Mojave desert?

      As for getting hit by a car, if we assume it was a hit and run, how did she go missing? Little elves carried her injured body (when no other traffic was around to witness this) off to a secret hiding place?

      People who get hit while riding their bike don’t go missing.

      Good riddance, Michelle. She was abducted, unfortunately. It’s the only thing that makes sense.

      1. Rich Meng says:

        In addition to not going missing, even if the person who hit her took her body for some reason, that is being TAKEN. So right, the husband has every right and reason to assume she was taken. Why does everything thing EVERYTHING is ODD?

      2. D says:

        Naw man the more realistic scenario is that her husband killed her Saturday night, it’ll come out he’s having an affair soon enough I am sure, and then staged the whole thing with the story she was out on a bike ride while he was conveniently in Denver for the day. Kidnappings are not a usual thing for 49 year olds, domestic violence is.

  2. Jay Alenby says:

    It seems to me every time a husband goes on camera like this that he is the guilty one. I hope they find her safe.

    1. Rich Meng says:

      So even if the husband didn’t do it, but goes on camera, he did it? Very unreasonable and that is guilty until proven innocent, which I bet you wouldn’t want placed on you if a crime or missing person innocent happened within your family.
