first_imgWoodland Park Police(WOODLAND PARK, Colo.) — A security video of a young Colorado mother shopping at a grocery store with her baby on Thanksgiving Day was released by police in hopes it will prompt new leads in her mysterious disappearance.The video released Tuesday night by Woodland Park, Colo., police shows Berreth, 29, entering a Safeway store near her home with her baby in a car seat. Berreth is seen getting a shopping cart before she goes out of the view of the camera.Police officials said the video was taken at 12:27 p.m. on Nov. 22 and is the last confirmed sighting of Berreth.While the footage does not show Berreth leaving, police said her fiancé, Patrick Frazee, the father of her child, told investigators he met Berreth later that day to pick up their daughter. Berreth and Frazee do not live together, her relatives said.Berreth, a flight instructor, hasn’t been seen since.Frazee has yet to publicly comment on Berreth’s disappearance. He declined to speak with an ABC News reporter on Tuesday when contacted at his home and also outside the office of an attorney. On both occasions, he had his daughter with him.Woodland Park Police Chief Miles De Young told reporters earlier this week that Frazee has been cooperating with investigators in the missing person case and that he is not a suspect.Berreth was reported missing on Dec. 2 by her mother, Cheryl Berreth.“This is completely out of character,” Cheryl Berreth said at a news conference on Monday. “Kelsey loves her dog, she loves her family and friends and she loves her job.”She said her daughter is “not the kind that runs off.”Further deepening the mystery is a ping from Berreth’s cellphone that was detected by police on Nov. 25 near Golding, Idaho, some 700 miles from Woodland Park. But police have found no other evidence of Berreth in Idaho, officials said.De Young said that on the same day Berreth’s cellphone pinged in Idaho, her employer, Doss Aviation, in Pueblo, Colo., received a text message presumably from Berreth stating that she would not be able to work the following week.Berreth’s worried mother said that “someone knows where she’s at” and directed a message to Berreth, asking her to return.“Kelsey, we just want you home,” Cheryl Berreth said. “Call us if you can and we won’t quit looking.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Winter storm warning

first_imgA strong winter storm will throw a double punch of extreme conditions across northeast Georgia this week – Tuesday through Thursday. The first part of the storm is expected to move into northern Georgia Monday night and Tuesday morning with the potential for sleet, freezing rain and snow up to several inches in the higher elevations. The second, stronger part of the storm will move in around Tuesday evening and is expected to bring widespread freezing rain to most of northern and eastern Georgia. Accumulations of a half-inch or more could be seen in some areas of the state. Freezing rain accumulation of a quarter inch can cause power outages.Impacts from the double-barrel storm are expected to be severe. Snow early in the period may make roads in some areas slippery and difficult to navigate. Freezing rain later in the storm could lead to widespread damage to power lines. Trees may be weakened after suffering from years of drought and may suffer broken limbs due to ice accumulation. Areas that receive the highest frozen rain accumulations could experience power outages for several days, especially in rural areas.People in areas of the most affected region should prepare for the storm on Monday. Make sure vehicles and generators are fully stocked with gasoline, especially if you depend on power to run operations such as a dairy. Make sure mobile phones and tablets are fully charged.School and business closures are highly likely in the affected areas and many meetings are likely to be canceled due to the bad driving conditions and lack of power. Those who live outside the area but travel to or through northeast Georgia, should keep abreast of current road conditions as well as forecasts for the next few days. If you do travel, put a winter weather kit in your vehicle. This kit should include the following items: blankets or sleeping bags; matches and candles; facial tissues and paper towels; extra clothing, especially caps, mitten and overshoes; high-calorie, non-perishable food; bottled water; compass and road maps; knife, shovel and axe; first aid kit; sack of sand; flashlight or signal light with extra batteries; windshield scraper; jumper cables; two tow chains; flares; fire extinguisher; catalytic heater; plastic scraper; radio with extra batteries; an empty coffee can with plastic cover to use as a toilet and tools – pliers, screwdriver and adjustable wrench.If you have scheduled meetings in an affected area, prepare now for canceling the meetings and contacting participants. South Georgians will likely see a rain event, but should continue to follow National Weather Service forecasts closely for changing conditions. Forecast conditions in strong storms can change quickly as computer models pick up the latest trends in the development of the storm. Monitor the National Weather Service and other forecasts for the latest outlooks.Resources for preparing for winter storms can be found at www.caes.uga.edu/topics/distasters/winterstorm and eden.lsu.edu/Topics/Hazards/SnowIce/Pages/UniversityandFederalResources.aspx.last_img read more
