Family of missing Woodland Park mother holding onto hope for 29-year-old’s safe return


A Woodland Park mother has been reported missing now for eight days.

Kelsey Berreth, 29, was last seen on November 22 and was reported missing by her mother on December 2. She’s described as being about 5’3’’, 110 pounds with Brown hair.  

“We are treating Kelsey’s disappearance as a missing person’s case at this time. We have not identified anyone as a suspect and are asking the public for any information that might help us find her,” said Chief Miles De Young, of the Woodland Park Police Department.

Kelsey was last seen on November 22 at the Safeway in Woodland Park around 12:30 p.m. while she was shopping with her daughter, Kaylee. That same day Kelsey would see her fiancé Patrick when she dropped their daughter off.

“This is completely out of character, Kelsey loves her god, she loves her family and friends and she loves her job,” said Cheryl Berreth, mother of Kelsey Berreth. 

On November 25, Kelsey a Flight Instructor at Doss Aviation in Pueblo, texted her employer letting them know she wouldn’t be into work the following week. That same day Kelsey’s phone gave police another lead. 

“Reports are correct that Kelsey’s phone gave a location near Gooding, Idaho on November 25 at about 5:13 in the afternoon,” said Chief Miles De Young.

On December 2 after Kelsey’s mom reported her missing, officers searched her townhome and two cars and confirmed she wasn’t there. 

“Like I said, she doesn’t run off and someone knows where she is at; Kelsey we just want you home, call us if you can and we won’t quit looking,” said Berreth. 

As far as Kelsey’s fiancé Patrick goes, he was not at Monday’s press conference but Police say he is cooperating with them.

Officers said that the two also live in separate homes and have never lived together. Police say that all planes are accounted for and there is no indication that Kelsey took off to go anywhere. 

If you have any information about Kelsey you are asked to report it to Police on their tip line at 719-687-9262.
