More than a dozen detectives are still working around the clock to locate missing Colorado mom Suzanne Morphew two months after she disappeared.
Suzanne, 49, has not been seen since since she set off from her home in Maysville, Colorado on a solo bike ride on Mother’s Day, May 10.
On Thursday, the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office released a statement revealing that investigators conducted a second search of the $1.5 million home Suzanne shared with her husband, Barry, earlier in the day.
Members of the FBI initially conducted a thorough search of property shortly after Suzanne mysteriously vanished, before it was released back to Barry and the couple’s two adult daughters, Mallory and Macy.
‘The case remains very active, as more than a dozen investigators are aggressively working this case on a daily basis,’ Chaffee County Sheriff John Spezze said Thursday.
‘And until we determine what happened to Suzanne, we can’t discount any scenario or formally eliminate anyone from suspicion.’
Barry Morphew has been keeping a low profile after announcing a $100,000 reward for his wife’s safe return a short time after she disappeared. That figure was later doubled by a family friend. The $200,000 reward still remains on offer.

Suzanne was home alone at the time she set out on her bike ride on May 10, with husband Barry believed to be more than 140 miles away in Denver.
It was Suzanne and Barry’s adult daughters, Mallory and Macy, who raised the alarm about her disappearance.
They contacted a neighbor when they couldn’t get a hold of their mom when they returned from a camping trip in Idaho.
On the day Suzanne vanished, Barry was reportedly in Denver at a training course for his job as a volunteer firefighter.
Suzanne’s disappearance sparked an extensive search that included tracking dogs, water rescue teams and tactical mountain rescuers. The Colorado Bureau of Investigation and the FBI were also called in.

On May 17, a week after her disappearance, Barry released a video pleading with the public to help find his missing wife.
‘Oh Suzanne, if anyone is out there and can hear this, that has you, please, we’ll do whatever it takes to bring you back,’ Morphew stated in the video.
‘We love you; we miss you; your girls need you. No questions asked, however much they want – I will do whatever it takes to get you back. Honey, I love you, I want you back so bad.’
Two weeks after her disappearance, police took custody of the $1.5 million Morphew residence to carry out a search.
Cops were seen carrying evidence bags and equipment into the home.
A CSI photographer was spotted on the premises, and evidence bags were pictured being brought out and loaded into a van before the house handed it back to the family on May 28.

Police and the FBI also conducted a three-day search of a separate residential property where Barry Morphew had recently worked as a landscaper.
The riverfront Salida property is located around 12 miles from the couple’s home.
Authorities dug up a concrete slab that had been laid at that site, but it did not yield any further leads into Suzanne’s disappearance.
An earlier search took place along U.S. 50 after finding what was believed to be a personal item of Suzanne’s.
It was suspended on May 15 when it led to no further leads.
The Chaffee County Sheriff’s Department is urging anyone with information to call (719) 312-7530.
Police have carried out ten major searches in the area that included along the highway, in Morphew’s family home and in a property where her husband Barry had been working
