A security video of a young Colorado mother shopping at a grocery store with her baby on Thanksgiving Day was released by police hoping it will bring forth new leads in her strange disappearance.
The video which was let out on Tuesday night by Woodland Park, Colorado, police shows Kelsey Berreth, 29, entering a Safeway store close to her home with her baby in a car seat. Berreth is seen collecting a shopping cart before she goes out of the view of the camera.
Police officials note that the video was taken at 12:27 p.m. on Nov. 22 and is the last confirmed sighting of Berreth.
Even though the footage does not show Berreth leaving, police said her fiancé, Patrick Frazee, the father of her child, told investigators he met Berreth later that day to pick up their daughter. Berreth and Frazee do not live together, her relatives said.
Berreth, a flight instructor, has not been seen since.
Frazee has not publicly commented on Berreth’s disappearance.
Jeremy Loew, Frazee’s attorney, released a statement to ABC News on Wednesday, saying Frazee had been cooperating with law enforcement. He has willingly released his phone to be searched and has provided a DNA sample.
Loew said “Mr. Frazee hopes and prays for Ms. Berreth’s return, “Mr. Frazee will continue to cooperate with law enforcement and continue to parent the child he shares with Ms. \
Berreth. He will not speak to the media about this case, as he does not want to impede law enforcement’s investigation.”
Chief Miles De Young, Woodland Park Police told reporters previously this week that Frazee has been cooperating with investigators in the missing person case and that he is not a suspect.
Berreth was announced missing on Dec. 2 by her mother, Cheryl Berreth.
Cheryl Berreth said at a news conference on Monday “This is completely out of character, “Kelsey loves her dog, she loves her family and friends and she loves her job.”
She included that her daughter is “not the kind that runs off.”
Loew said Frazee was not present at the news conference because he was not informed of it until an hour before it occurred.
She said “Had he been given more advance notice, he would have participated,”.
Additional intensifying mystery is a ping from Berreth’s cellphone that was caught by police on Nov. 25 near Golding, Idaho, some 700 miles from Woodland Park. But police have not discovered other evidence of Berreth in Idaho, officials said.
De Young said on the day Berreth’s cellphone pinged in Idaho, her employer, Doss Aviation, in Pueblo, Colorado, got a text message presumably from Berreth saying that she would not be able to work the following week.
Berreth’s worried mother said that “someone knows where she’s at” and sent a message to her daughter, asking her to come back.
Cheryl Berreth said “Kelsey, we just want you home, “Call us if you can and we won’t quit looking.”
