The family of missing Colorado mom Suzanne Morphew say they are still holding out hope for her safe return more than six weeks after she mysteriously vanished.
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.
In an update on a GoFundMe page set up for Suzanne, her nephew, Trevor Noel, wrote last Thursday: ‘Suzanne is still missing and the search goes on. Please continue to pray with us as we hold out hope for her safe return.’
He thanked those who have aided in the search to find the mom-of-two.
‘Whether donating financially, hiking the mountains, hanging posters, canvassing, preparing and delivering food for volunteers and so much more – please know that your thoughtfulness and compassion are so appreciated and that it has sustained the family throughout the difficulty of the search,’ Noel wrote.
Suzanne’s husband, 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.

More than $32,000 has been raised on Suzanne’s GoFundMe page, with Noel revealing the money is being handled by her adult daughter, Mallory Morphew.
Some of the funds will go towards expenses related to search efforts, including food and housing for volunteers.
Two weeks ago, two dozen investigators conducted a community canvas in the neighborhood where Suzanne vanished, questioning local residents in a bid to uncover any possible new leads in the case.
So far, detectives have been unable to find any information to help the solve a mystery that has attracted national attention.

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.
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
Police are re-canvassing the neighborhood in the hope of finding a new lead on missing mother-of-two Suzanne Morphew, pictured, who has now been missing for a month
An area close to Morphew’s house was searched after it was believed a personal item was found but the search was closed off on May 15 when it led to no fresh information
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.
Earlier this month, the CBI’s Susan Medina encouraged anyone with information to call the tip line created for the case.
‘No matter how small or insignificant something may seem, it could be that key piece of information that help investigators locate Suzanne,’ she said.
‘Even if you just recall something that may have seemed out of the ordinary at the time, report that information — it doesn’t matter that it’s a month later. Investigators still want to know.’
No suspects have yet been identified.
Authorities have asked anybody with information to dial (719) 312-7530
