A Colorado mom vanished from her home under mysterious circumstances, Fox News reported, leaving friends baffled.
Kimberlee Graves, 41, of Fort Collins was reported missing Dec. 8 after a friend, who hadn’t heard from Graves in several days, asked police to check on her home. No one was there and Graves’s car was gone, KDVR reported.
She had last been seen at her house four days earlier, on Dec. 4.
A few days later on Dec. 10, a friend visited Graves’s home and discovered it had been ransacked.
And then, on Dec. 13, Police found her car abandoned in a garage.
There has been no sign of injury, KDVR reported. It’s unclear if her children are with her, though 9News reported that police are only looking for Graves.
“There’s no evidence that would indicate injury to Kimberlee, but because of the kind of suspicious circumstances, we are asking the community’s help to locate her,” said Kate Kimble, public relations manager for Fort Collins police, to KDVR.
"I’m just really concerned. I’m curious what happened to my friend,” said friend Daniel Cordova to KDVR. “I heard about it when detectives came over to ask me questions – when is the last time I'd seen her, do I know the people that go over there, couple questions, that’s about it.”
Cordova said that Graves was too trusting of strangers.
"Too friendly. People in her house all the time. She had a nice 2015 RAV4 and she would just let people drive it," he said.
"Next thing I know it was side swiped, the window was broken out. I see someone keyed bad words into her door. I kind of got onto her about trusting people too much and now look."
Anyone with information as to Graves’ whereabouts are asked to call the Fort Collins Police Department at (970) 416-2825 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Tipsters can also contact Crime Stoppers of Larimer County at (970) 221-6868 or at StopCriminals.org.
“We need to cast the nest a little wider to find out if anyone in the community might know where she might be,” Kimble said.
