Wheat Ridge police will serve a search warrant Thursday on the home of a bank employee with a reputation for being very reliable who inexplicably vanished nearly two weeks ago.
"We are very concerned," said Dave Pickett, investigations commander of the Wheat Ridge Police Department. "We're not getting any information that she was in danger or depressed. We haven't ruled anything out at this point."
Leann "Annie" Meyer , 51, was last heard from Feb. 23 when she had a phone conversation with a friend. But her co-workers, eight siblings and parents haven't heard from her since then.
Pickett said police had earlier searched Meyer's home on the 4700 block of Newland Street and found no evidence of forced entry or that a crime had been committed.
Detectives want to do a more thorough search, hoping that a review of her daily activities might shed light on what may have happened to her, he said. Police want to review her bank and telephone records. Meyer is not married and doesn't have children.
"We're pretty sure she is gone but we don't know where or how," Pickett said. "We're taking a look at Leann Meyer's life to see if it might give an an idea of where she might be. "
Police are trying to find Meyer's Rav4 and silver pick-up.
Pickett said they would also like to speak with Meyer's roommate, Melissa Miller. In the days after Meyer's disappearance Miller asked a neighbor to care for Meyer's cat for a few days while she went to Evergreen for business.
Coworkers of Meyer at U.S. Bank called police on Feb. 27 and reported that Meyer was missing, Pickett said.
When police spoke with Miller she said her roommate was with a friend named Kathy. Miller didn't know the woman's last name, but she didn't indicate any concern about Meyer's welfare.
Although police have spoken to Miller they have not had a lengthy discussion with her in the Wheat Ridge police station. They are hoping to do so, Pickett said.
"She hasn't been concerned. She is the only one to indicate Meyer might be in a specific location," Pickett said. "We haven't interviewed anyone who said Meyer ever exhibited this behavior before. We don't know if she is alive."
