WOODLAND PARK, Colo. (KKTV) -- Concerns are mounting for a 29-year-old last seen on Thanksgiving Day.

Kelsey Berreth

Kelsey Berreth was last seen in Woodland Park, Colorado on Nov. 22 and reported missing 10 days later. In between those two dates, her place of employment and her fiance both said they received messages from her phone.

"Officers were able to contact her place of employment at Doss Aviation in Pueblo, Colorado and were advised that they had received a text from Kelsey's phone on the 25th of November stating she would not be into work the following week," said Woodland Park Police Chief Miles DeYoung.

Berreth's mother Cheryl contacted Berreth's fiance, Patrick Frazee, who said Nov. 25 was also the last day he had received a message from her phone.

On that date, Berreth's phone pinged near Gooding, Idaho, 800 miles from Woodland Park.

Frazee was the last known person to see Berreth, according to DeYoung.

"Patrick told officers he hadn’t seen her since Thanksgiving, November 22nd, when they exchanged their daughter.”

Prior to that meeting, Berreth was caught on surveillance at the Woodland Park Safeway, the last confirmed sighting.

"We’ve reviewed video from the local Safeway grocery store and it showed Kelsey shopping with her daughter Kaleigh on November 22 at about 12:27 p.m. That’s the last time Kelsey was seen," DeYoung said.

DeYoung said Frazee was cooperating with the investigation but declined to speak at the news conference Monday.

Cheryl Berreth said her daughter was not the type to leave without telling anyone.

"She’s not the kind who runs off. This is completely out of character. Kelsey loves her god, she loves her family and friends, and she loves her job. She’s reliable, considerate and honest," said Cheryl Berreth.

A vigil was held over the weekend by her brother-in-law in Washington state, where she also has some relatives. Online, thousands are following the search, with more than 9,000 people following the "Missing Mother - Kelsey Berreth Facebook page.

According to the people who run the page, Berreth is 5-foot-3, 110 pounds, and wears a size 0-1 in clothing. She was last seen wearing a white shirt under a gray sweater, jeans or dark blue pants, white shoes, and was carrying a brown purse.

DeYoung said the department was considering the disappearance a missing persons case and currently did not have a suspect.

"Our sole goal is to get Kelsey out in front of everyone. Like I said, she doesn’t run off, and somebody knows where she’s at. Kelsey, we just want you home. Call us if you can. And we won’t quit looking," Cheryl Berreth said.

If you have any information on her location, you're asked to call 719-687-9262.
