Police probing the disappearance and death of Suzanne Morphew have set up a tip line for the public in a bid to reignite the probe as her family hopes that ‘all hands are on deck’ to find out what happened.
Morphew, 49, went missing from near her home in Salida, Colorado, a while out for a Mother’s Day bike ride in 2020.
The wife and mother-of-two’s remains were found in a shallow grave last month during a search for another missing woman, Edna Quintana, 55.
Morphew’s husband, Barry, was initially charged with her murder despite there being no body.
However, the charges were dropped the following year and no new arrests have been made, prompting detectives to set up the hotline.
Investigators looking into the disappearance and death of Suzanne Morphew have set up a hotline for the public to get in touch with information
The Colorado Bureau of Investigation is still examining the circumstances of Suzanne Morphew’s disappearance more than three years ago and confirmed there are no developments in the case
The Colorado Bureau of Investigation said: ‘CBI has set up a tip line for the Suzanne Morphew investigation.
‘The public is asked to report any information about this case by sending an email to email@example.com or by calling 719-312-7530. There is no new information in the case at this time.’
Morphew’s husband and daughters also issued a fresh plea for information.
Iris Eytan, an attorney for the Morphew family, told Fox News Digital: ‘The Morphew family wishes that all hands are on deck to find the person(s) responsible for Suzanne’s death.
‘The Morphews also want to send love to Edna Quintana’s family and hopes that the authorities find her soon.’
Morphew’s remains were discovered in a remote field near Moffat in Saguache County, 50 minutes from her home.
Police were initially searching for Quintana, who vanished on May 3.
Barry Morphew was initially arrested and charged with the murder of his wife Suzanne despite there being no body but the charges were later dropped
At the time of her disappearance Morphew and her husband’s marriage was breaking down and she was undergoing cancer treatment for the second time in her life.
Both parties had engage in extramarital affairs and in the days before she vanished, Morphew texted her husband to say she was ‘done’ with the relationship.
Morphew’s bike was discovered discarded in a ravine later on the day she disappeared.
Police conducted a search of the couple’s $1.5 million mansion but found nothing.
Barry was arrested almost a year after her disappearance and charged with first-degree murder, tampering with evidence and attempting to influence a public servant.
The charges were later dropped ‘without prejudice’ meaning he could be recharged if new evidence comes to light and prosecutors said they wanted more time to find the body.
The couple’s two daughters Mallory and Macy have also supported him since the arrest.

Following the discovery of his wife’s body, Barry said he was ‘relieved’.
A source close to him told the Sun US: ‘It’s a relief but also a great sadness,’ a source close to Barry Morphew told the website.
‘We now know she’s not alive, which we’d desperately been hoping (for).
‘But we hope that Barry’s name can be cleared because of the location where she was found and the timing of it all.’
Barry is now suing for $15 million damages claiming he was wrongfully charged.
Meanwhile Morphew’s sister Melinda Balzer also spoke of her relief, she said: ‘My heart continues to feel a quiet relief and peace with the settled knowing that my beautiful sister, Suzanne Morphew was recently found.
‘I am grateful for the closure for which I have prayed since May of 2020.’ She also thanked law enforcement and urged the public to keep the search for Quintana’s in the public eye.
She added: ‘This has been a journey which no family ever thinks they will take yet many do. I have experienced that no one is exempt from evil in this broken world.
‘I choose, however, to focus on the next road of this ever changing journey into finding the truth of what happened to Suzanne on that fateful day of Mother’s Day weekend, May 9th, 2020. We are now closer than ever to the truth.’
