Colorado woman likely killed at home; fiance charged

Fiancé of missing Colorado mom Kelsey Berreth arrested	 	 	 			Kelsey Berreth

Frazee, 32, was arrested at his home in the alpine town of Florissant on suspicion of murder and solicitation of murder, said Miles de Young, chief of police in neighbouring Woodland Park, where Berreth lived.

Patrick Frazee was seen in handcuffs after authorities executed an arrest warrant, sources told ABC News.

District Attorney Dan May says formal charges are pending and could take as long as 10 days to file.

Berreth's body has not yet been found and officials said they didn't want to speculate on where they believe it might be.

On Thursday evening, investigators from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, the Woodland Park Police Department and the FBI returned to Berreth's home once again to look for new leads into her disappearance.

Cheryl Berreth spoke by phone twice to her daughter on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 22 - the last day anyone saw Kelsey before the 29-year-old flight instructor from Woodland Park, Colorado, vanished.

Authorities are still combing Berreth's house for clues, May said.

She said that Kelsey's relationship with Frazee "has been good".

The crime may have occurred at her home, the chief said.

" Prince Louis is the cutest little nugget in the world and if you don't agree, you're wrong", one Twitter user wrote. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle chose a newly released photo from their royal wedding for their card.

Berreth's disappearance was officially labeled a missing-person investigation until Friday, but De Young did call her disappearance "suspicious" last week and pleaded with Frazee to "sit down with investigators".

De Young declined to explain why Frazee has been accused of solicitation of murder. "That's the last time Kelsey was seen", he said.

Investigators who went to Berreth's home found cinnamon rolls in the kitchen and both of her cars outside. "This is completely out of character", Cheryl Berreth said. He said the search and arrest affidavits will stay sealed for now.

A police investigation was opened December 2 after Berreth's mother asked for a welfare check.

A week after that, she was reported missing.

Berreth's employer got a text from her phone on November 25, saying she wouldn't be able to work that week, police have said. Kelsey loves her God, she loves her family and friends, and she loves her job.

Today's arrest came after police urged Mr Frazee to speak directly with investigators and after a search of his high country ranch property as well as Ms Berreth's own townhome in Woodland Park. "She's reliable, considerate, and honest". Another text message was sent to Frazee, though its contents have not been made public.

Berreth's phone did end up in Idaho, De Young confirmed Friday, adding that police are still working to recover it.

Authorities have searched the property of Berreth's fiancé Patrick Frazee and their search there involved heavy digging equipment.
