In searching to find the lastest update on Paige Birgfeld since my last post of July 20th this one of August 9th is the most recent one I could find. Obviously they are having a hard time as to not having much luck with their investigation as to any info they find leading any where.
(AP) GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. Dive teams and a sonar-equipped boat have searched the Gunnison River for a 34-year-old woman who has not been seen in more than a month.
Crews searched about 15 miles of the river on Wednesday in hopes of finding clues in the disappearance of Paige Birgfeld, who was last seen June 28.
Investigators and volunteers have found Birgfeld’s burned-out car and an unloaded handgun not far from the vehicle. They also recovered some of her personal items but declined to identify them.
Friends and family have described the twice-divorced Birgfeld as a devoted mother who sold kitchen products and held other jobs to support her three children. Authorities said Birgfeld also had an escort service, a discovery that surprised many who knew her.
On Saturday, search dogs released near where the car was found led investigators to a nearby RV dealership where a “person of interest” Lester Ralph Jones (foxnews) in the case is employed.
Investigators have not said what the dogs found, if anything.
