In the week of missing Colorado mom Suzanne Morphew’s 50th birthday, a stone statue and memorial plaque appeared near the scene of where her bicycle was found last year, according to local reports.

The statue once belonged to Morphew’s mother and had later been displayed at the family’s Chaffee County, Colo., home, according to Fox 21 reporter Lauren Scharf. She said it had been placed at the new location by Barry Morphew, the missing woman’s husband, and their children.

Along with the statue, a plaque reads “In memory of a loving mother.”

It comes shortly before Morphew would have been missing for a full year.

“Suzanne is missing,” Sheriff John Spezze said at the time. “We in law enforcement hope for the best but prepare for the worst.  The worst-case scenario is that something unlawful occurred, and as such we go about our investigation ensuring we are working within the rules of law and treating everything we learn as potential evidence for court.”

She was last seen on Mother’s Day – May 10, 2020, when she left for a bike ride.

Her bike was recovered just a half-mile from the home, but investigators, despite following up on hundreds of tips and spending thousands of hours searching, never uncovered her whereabouts.

Chaffee County community members plan to hold a vigil event Friday at 7 p.m. to mark her birthday and another is planned for May 2 in her home state of Indiana, according to Fox 21.
