Fiancé Of Missing Colorado Mom Kelsey Berreth Arrested In Her Disappearance

Authorities have charged the fiance of a Colorado woman missing since Thanksgiving with first-degree murder and solicitation to commit murder.

Woodland Park Police Chief Miles De Young answers questions about the disappearance of resident Kelsey Berreth, 29, while her mother, Cheryl Berreth, stands in the background during a news conference at City Hall in Woodland Park, Colo. on December 10, 2018.

Commander Greg Couch, a spokesman for the Teller County Sheriff's Office, tells CBS News his department assisted in serving an arrest warrant on Frazee at his home in the community of Florissant, Colorado. "He is now being held in the Teller County Jail".

Kelsey Berreth, 29, of Woodland Park, Colorado, was last seen shopping for groceries on Thanksgiving Day.

Their 1-year-old daughter, who was in Frazee's custody until his arrest, is safe, according to ABC. Frazee had told police that the couple met sometime that afternoon so he could pick up the child. They did not live together, and the girl was staying with her father. Police recently searched Frazee's property but have not provided any information about the evidence they presented to a judge for approval of the search.

Her body has not been found but information is helping narrow down the search, Woodland Park Police Chief Miles De Young said at a news conference Friday.

"Her phone did end up in Idaho and we're still working to recover that phone", the police chief said.

Investigators who went to Berreth's home found cinnamon rolls in the kitchen and both of her cars outside.

Public records show that property associated with Frazee's name in Florissant covers 35 acres. News has reached out to Patrick's attorney for comment on today's arrest.

Loew previously said his client provided police with DNA samples and access to his cellphone.

Frazee told cops that Berreth also sent him a text the same day.

Miles De Young, the Woodland Park Police Department, told reporters on December 11, that there was no indication of any threat or danger to the missing mother while confirming that her cell phone pinged outside of Gooding, Idaho on November 25. Woodland Park police began their search on December 2, when Berreth's mother, Cheryl, alerted them to her daughter's disappearance.

Police also said Doss Aviation had accounted for all their planes and there was no reason to believe she used someone else's plane for a flight.

Investigators with the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, the Woodland Park Police Department and the FBI were spotted at Berreth's home Thursday evening carrying large brown bags out of the home, and a firefighter was seen carrying a ladder into the house, CNN affiliate KMGH reported.
