TELLER COUNTY, Colo. – A two-day search of the home of Kelsey Berreth’s fiancé in Florissant, Colorado turned up no sign of the missing woman, Chief of Police Miles J. De Young said Sunday.

About 75 people from multiple jurisdictions searched the 35-acre home of Patrick Frazee Saturday, hoping to find any new clues that would provide answers into the Woodland Park, Colorado woman’s mysterious disappearance. Frazee, who has not been ruled out as a suspect in the case, continues to cooperate with police during the investigation, according to his lawyer.

“We still have not found Kelsey,” De Young said in the latest press release from law enforcement.

The search, which at one point involved the help of a backhoe, was completed Saturday and the property was turned over to Frazee.

Investigators are continuing to conduct interviews as De Young stressed the case “remains our number one priority.”

Details about what investigators were searching for at the home have not been released.

Berreth, 29,  has not been seen since Thanksgiving  .  She was spotted on surveillance video  at a Safeway in Woodland Park that day. Her cell phone pinged about 800 miles away in Idaho on Nov. 25.

Her brother told "Good Morning America" that she did not seem to have packed to take any trips.

De Young said Friday afternoon that it was investigators' "hope" that Berreth was still alive and said that was "absolutely a possibility."

Berreth is described as a white female standing 5 feet, 3 inches tall and weighing 110 pounds. She has brown hair and green eyes.

A $25,000 reward is now being offered for any new information that leads to Berreth’s location or safe return. A donation fund has been set up in Berreth's name at Wells Fargo bank branches.

Anybody with information on her disappearance is encouraged to contact the Woodland Park Police Department at 719-687-9262 or email  Kelsey@city-woodlandpark.org.
