Barry Morphew and his daughters call for authorities to find missing mother Suzanne Morphew – New York Daily News

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, the daughters of Suzanne Morphew, a Colorado woman who disappeared nearly two years ago, have raised their voices for the first time and demanded justice on her behalf as the murder charges against their father have been dropped.

Mallory and Macy Morphew sat on opposite sides of their father, Barry, during a performance Friday on Good Morning America. They have consistently supported him during their mother’s murder investigation, in which he was the authorities’ primary and only suspect. They assisted him during the trial and visited him while he awaited his trial, although their recent interview marks the first time they have sat down together since the charges against their father were dropped.

“We’ve been quiet for a long time and we’ve decided we want to finally break the silence,” Mallory said.

“It’s been an emotional rollercoaster but we feel like we can finally take our first steps in healing, which is a blessing. And we just know our father better than anyone and we know that he was not involved in our mother’s disappearance.”

Suzanne Morphew disappeared on the afternoon of May 10, 2020, which was also Mother’s Day, when she left her home in Chaffee County for a bike ride.

Her disappearance sparked a widespread search and investigation, eventually culminating in the arrest of her husband, Barry Morphew. He was charged earlier this year with tampering with physical evidence and attempting to influence a government official, as well as murder, though Suzanne’s body has not been found.

Last month, District Attorney Linda Stanley filed a motion to dismiss the charges against Morphew unimpaired, meaning charges can still be brought if new evidence is presented.

“Without the victim’s body, people cannot proceed in good faith at this time,” prosecutors said.

In the report, the investigators noted that they thought they were close to finding Suzanne’s body, but the weather has stalled their efforts.

“I just hope Linda will step up to the plate and do everything she can to find our mother,” she said, “because what they have done is not fair and we will never stop looking for our mother.”

Reiterating the sentiment, Barry expressed his wish that the mystery of his wife’s disappearance be solved.

“I just love my girls and I love my wife and I just want her to be found.”
