Police continue search for 51-year-old Leann 'Annie' Meyer of Wheat Ridge

Police want to question roommate

WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. - Police say they are concerned about a 51-year-old Wheat Ridge woman who has been missing more than a week.

Wheat Ridge police say Leann "Annie" Meyer was last heard from on Feb. 23 when she spoke with a friend on the phone. Meyer last communicated via text message with her employer on Feb. 25. She has not been seen or heard from since then.

"We're concerned because we have absolutely no idea what's happened," said Wheat Ridge Police Cmdr. Dave Pickett, head of the Investigations Bureau.

"Her employer said she was very reliable and she didn't show up for work, and now we can't find her at her house. Her cellphone's not taking calls and both of her vehicles are missing," Pickett added.

Meyer's missing vehicles are a 2009 Silver Toyota Rav4 bearing Colorado license plate 975 YUH and a 1995 Silver Toyota pickup bearing Colorado license plate 688 DJH.

Pickett said investigators calling Meyer's cell phone get a recording saying the mail box is full.

Investigators plan to serve search warrants Thursday on Meyer's home, phone records and bank account to get more information about where she has been.

Meanwhile, police would like to question Meyer's roommate about the last time she was seen.

"A neighbor was looking after her cat, but that was at the request of a roommate," Pickett said.

Wednesday, Pickett said the roommate has not been very cooperative.

"We haven't learned much from the roommate," said Pickett. "We've talked to her a couple of times on the phone, and would really like to speak to her in person. We haven’t been able to make that happen yet, so we’re going to renew efforts on that tomorrow as well."

Friends describe Meyer as a long-time Wheat Ridge resident who loves camping, golf and softball.

Diane King has known Meyer for two decades and had dinner with her about three weeks ago.

"She’s very reliable, responsible. She’s been at her job for 15 years," said King. "We’re just all scratching our heads. Very concerned. It’s not characteristic of Annie at all again not to call into work and show up. It’s not her at all."

Meyer is 5-feet-7-inches tall and weighs 130 pounds. She has blue eyes and gray-brown hair.

Anyone with information about Meyer is asked to call the Wheat Ridge Police Department at 303-237-2220.
