Berreth is a pilot and mother of a 1-year-old girl. Police said she was last seen at a Safeway on Thanksgiving near her home in Woodland Park, Colorado.
Investigators said three days after her disappearance, her cell phone pinged in Gooding, Idaho. That is more than 700 miles from where she disappeared, Cmdr. Chris Adams of the Woodland Park Police Dept. told ABC News’ “Good Morning America” on Sunday.
Her employer received a text message that said Berreth wouldn’t be at work the following week.
“It makes us wonder what she’s doing up there, or what the phone is, potentially, because she may not be there,” Adams said.
According to ABC News, the father of Berreth’s daughter told authorities he last saw her on Thanksgiving when they exchanged their daughter. Authorities said the man is cooperating with the investigation.
Right now, the disappearance is being treated as a missing persons case. A suspect has not been identified.
At a press conference Monday, her mother, Cheryl Berreth of Sandpoint, said her daughter wouldn’t just disappear.
“Our sole goal is to get Kelsey in front of everyone. Like I said, she doesn’t run off and someone knows where she is at,” Cheryl Berreth said. “Kelsey, we just want you home. Call us if you can. We won’t quit looking.”
Members of the Berreth family attend the Sandpoint Seventh-Day Adventist Church, which has been sharing updates online and calling on people to pray for the family.
There is also a Facebook page dedicated to updating the public and raising awareness about this case.
According to police, this missing mother also has a grandmother who lives in Washington.
If you see Kelsey Berreth or know where she might be, call the Woodland Park Police Department at (719) 687-9262 or the CBI at (719) 647-5999.
