A 29-year-old Colorado mother can be seen on newly released video entering a local Safeway supermarket with a baby carrier in hand on Thanksgiving Day. It was one of the last times anyone saw her.
Woodland Park Police released the surveillance video, taken around noon on Nov. 22, on Tuesday. Kelsey Berreth can be seen walking into the store with the carrier — and presumably holding her 1-year-old daughter, Kaylee — then grabbing a shopping cart and going to shop.
The footage provided the "last visual confirmation" police have of Berreth, according to a press release.
Patrick Frazee, Berreth’s fiancé, has told police he saw Berreth later that afternoon when he picked up Kaylee, but the missing mom hasn't been seen by friends or family since; the couple reportedly does not live together.
Just three days after the last time she was seen, Berreth's phone pinged a cell tower in Idaho — hundreds of miles away from her Colorado home.
A text message was also sent from Berreth’s phone to her employer Nov. 25, telling Doss Aviation, the flight school where she works as an instructor, that she planned to take a week off of work.
Frazee also told police that although he hadn't seen her since Thanksgiving, the last time he communicated with her was on Nov. 25.
Berreth’s family said her clothes, makeup, suitcases, two vehicles and a small plane were all still at her home and remained untouched since Thanksgiving — making the circumstances around her disappearance all the more unusual.
Her mother, Cheryl Berreth, called the disappearance "completely out of character" during a Monday press conference, according to KMGH-TV. Frazee declined to participate in the presser.
"There's no reason to think she intentionally is gone," Berreth's cousin, JoDee Garretson, told local outlet KEPR-TV on Friday. "You see things like this on the news but you feel separate from it because it's always so far away."
Kelsey Berreth, who is 5'3" and 110 pounds, was last seen wearing a white shirt, grey sweater and blue pants, police said. Woodland Park Police have asked local law enforcement agencies around the country, as well as the FBI, to assist in the search.
