Missing Woman's family organizes search from hotel room

Family posts fliers in Blackhawk, Central City

WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. - The Meyer family has converted a crowded, Wheat Ridge hotel room into a war room.

"We've all been on computers and iPhones, making charts," said Pat Meyer, Annie Meyer's 84-year-old mother, who flew from Minnesota to be one of the people fighting for answers.

Annie Meyer's eight brothers and sisters are taking turns coming to Colorado, as well, pouring over names, dates and dead ends.

"Very frustrating," said Judy Gustafson, Annie Meyer's sister. "We think we are onto something, and then go look for another lead."

Annie Meyer has not been seen since Feb. 7, when she went home early from work because she was ill.

Pat Meyer spoke to her daughter the following Sunday, and remembers her saying that she wasn't feeling well.

"It was the last time, confirmed, anyone talked to her," said Pat Meyer. "I wish I would have spoken to her longer."

On Monday, for the first time, police allowed Annie Meyer's best friend and her mother to go inside her home to look for anything missing.

"She [the best friend] saw nothing gone," said Pat Meyer. "Annie didn't pack and go away. Her luggage was all there. I just think Annie was taken out of the house by force."

The Meyer family spent the day posting fliers and asking questions in Black Hawk and Central City, places Annie was known to visit occasionally.

Last week police found both of Annie's missing vehicles, but they would not say how they discovered the older-model truck.

Family members said it had apparently been sold to a man, but they don't know if Annie sold it.

Last weekend, more than one-hundred people gathered in Wheat Ridge to help in the search, walking the trails Annie walked and fighting the feeling that they are losing the battle.

"If there's no answers, where do you look or what do you do?" asked Pat Meyer. "We want her found, we want to take her home."

For now, family members stay busy in the "war room" paying Annie's bills, making missing person signs and praying someone will give them peace.
