WOODLAND PARK, Colo. – Kelsey Berreth has not been seen for nearly a month. On Thursday evening, investigators from multiple law enforcement agencies returned to her home once again hoping find new leads into her mysterious disappearance.

Investigators with the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, the Woodland Park Police Department and the FBI were spotted at Berreth’s home just before 7 p.m. going in and out of the residence.

Denver7 photojournalist James Dougherty tweeted he heard banging coming from the inside as investigators searched her home.

In the latest press release related to the case, Woodland Park Police Chief Miles J. De Young said investigators are continuing to “methodically investigate Kelsey’s disappearance, exhaust all investigative leads, and devote dedicated law enforcement resources to this matter.”

While Young did not reveal what led them to Berreth’s home Thursday evening, he said investigators are continuing to make progress with “multiple investigative leads in this case.”

Such leads involved large pieces of evidence taken from the woman’s home, as witnessed by Dougherty, who said investigators brought large brown bags from inside the residence. At one point, the local fire department even brought a ladder inside.

Just before 8 p.m., Berreth’s front door was sealed as investigators were packing their things and leaving the scene.

Last weekend, authorities searched the property of Berreth’s fiancé in Florissant, but no sign of the missing woman turned up at the time.

Berreth, 29, has not been seen since Thanksgiving. She was spotted on surveillance video at a Safeway in Woodland Park that day. Her cell phone pinged about 800 miles away in Idaho on Nov. 25.

Her brother told Good Morning America that she did not seem to have packed to take any trips.

De Young said on Dec. 14 it is investigators' "hope" that Berreth is still alive, saying that was "absolutely a possibility."

Berreth is described as a white female standing 5 feet, 3 inches tall and weighing 110 pounds. She has brown hair and green eyes.

A $25,000 reward is now being offered for any new information that leads to Berreth’s location or safe return. A donation fund has also been set up in Berreth's name at Wells Fargo bank branches.

Anybody with information on her disappearance is encouraged to contact the Woodland Park Police Department at 719-687-9262 or email
