Missing woman recovered
A woman reported missing from a restaurant in Breckenridge May 5 was found after she returned home to Vail the same evening.
The woman was working at a restaurant in Frisco, promoting a brand of alcohol, when she befriended a group of patrons and made plans to go out with them in Breckenridge and stay with them that night, as her own residence was in Vail, according to statements included in a report from the Breckenridge Police Department.
The woman departed the restaurant in Frisco with her new friends, leaving her car behind. She then went to another restaurant in Breckenridge, where she was reportedly very intoxicated. Later in the evening, the people with whom the woman had planned to stay that night lost track of her, according to the police report, but told authorities they weren’t worried until they saw that her vehicle was still parked the following morning at the restaurant in Frisco where she’d been working. They contacted the police to file a missing person’s report.
Authorities called the woman’s cell phone, but it was turned off. It had last pinged off a tower in Vail at 6:30 a.m.
At 8:30 that night, the woman called her friends letting them know she was fine and had gotten a ride home to Vail the night before.
Construction crews do not see the sign
A supervisor for the company leading the revitalization project on Main Street in Breckenridge reported a sign stolen May 3.
The black and white sign reading, ‘Sidewalk closed ahead,” was last seen on the south side of Adams Avenue and the east side of Main Street, according to a report from the Breckenridge Police Department. The supervisor reportedly told authorities he’d talked with his crew, and none of them had seen the sign or knew where it might be located.
The sign was valued at $175.
Breckenridge authorities reportedly searched the area around the constructions site for the missing sign without any luck. The case was listed as inactive with no leads or suspects.
Two hockey players reported a total of $180 stolen from the Stephen C. West Ice Arena in Breckenridge April 22.
According to a police report, the two men had left the cash with their belongings in a locker room while they were playing in a league hockey game between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. that night. One man reported $80 in cash missing when he returned after the game. A second man stated he lost $100, according to the police report. Both still had some money left in their wallets.
None of the other players were carrying much money and none reported anything else missing.
Authorities reviewed video surveillance footage and saw one man entering the locker room through an adjoining locker room during the victims’ hockey game, but after speaking with the individual, realized he was playing with another league and had been assigned to the adjacent locker room. His story matched what the security footage showed. He was not charged and reported he had not seen any one else in or around the locker room during the game.
The case was listed as inactive with leads exhausted.
