Authorities have extended the search for the body of a missing Colorado mother to a landfill.

Kelsey Berreth, a 29-year-old mother of one, is presumed dead and her fiance has been charged with her murder. But officials have yet to locate her body. 

Now, a spokesperson at Midway Landfill in Fountain has said police have their eye on the property.

“The Colorado Bureau of Investigation contacted Waste Management of Colorado regarding a potential search at Midway Landfill and we are cooperating fully,” a spokeswoman from the company, Anne Spitza, told ABC News.

The landfill is around a 40-mile drive from where Berreth was last spotted with her daughter on Thanksgiving. 

Her fiance, Patrick Frazee, who is also the father of her 1-year-old daughter, has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder and three counts of solicitation to commit murder.

He told authorities he met Berreth around noon on Thanksgiving so he could pick up their daughter at a local supermarket. 

Another woman is being investigated for possibly disposing of Berreth’s cellphone after the alleged murder. Her phone pinged a tower in Idaho three days after she went missing. 

A text was also sent from her phone to her boss saying she would not be at work that week.

Frazee has yet to enter a plea and is set to appear in court again on Jan. 29.

Berreth’s parents have also filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Frazee.
