Investigators continue to search home of Kelsey Barreth's fiance, who still has custody of child

FLORISSANT, Colo. - Law enforcement officers are on their second day of searching the home of Patrick Frazee, the fiancé of a Woodland Park woman who has been missing since Thanksgiving. 

Investigators showed up at Frazee's property just north of Florissant Friday morning

Frazee's fiancé, Kelsey Berreth, was last seen on Thanksgiving, when surveillance video showed her entering the Woodland Park Safeway store. She dropped off her 1-year-old daughter with Frazee, who is the girl's father, later that day. Berreth's mother reported her missing on December 2. 

Investigators said it could take them up to three days to search the 35-acre property. Multiple agencies are working on the investigation. 

Police said Saturday morning that the couple's daughter, Kaylee, remains with her father. Police said the Teller County Department of Human Services "does not have evidence that Kaylee's safety is at risk while in Patrick Frazee's custody." 

Frazee was seen leaving the property in a patrol car Friday morning, but deputies said he is not under arrest. 

Police are working to establish a reward for information leading to Kelsey's location or safe return. 

"We still have not found Kelsey and continue to search for her," police said in a statement Saturday morning.
