Family of a missing mom and grandmother in Colorado claim the woman was planning to confront her cheating partner just before she mysteriously vanished.
According to the Daily Mail, 49-year-old grandmother Marlena Mizell was last seen leaving a gas station in South Forks, Colorado in early January before she mysteriously went missing.
Her last cell phone ping was north of Dulce, New Mexico — 44 miles away from the location she was last seen alive.
Police in the region have now said they found Mizell’s missing car, but have yet to properly inspect or recover the vehicle due to inclement weather in the area making for dangerous conditions.
Megan Mizell said she last spoke to her mother on the phone at 10.16am on the morning of her disappearance, and she said it was a ‘semi-normal’ conversation that lasted a couple of minutes.
According to Mizell’s family, the Colorado grandmother went mysteriously missing just a day after broadcasting nude photos of her partner’s alleged lover.
According to The U.S. Sun, Marlena Mizell’s daughters, Sarah Ferguson and Megan Mizell, told a true crime podcast that their last conversation with their mother worried them.
“But at the very end she said, ‘I love you, Megan,’ in a way that I’m not used to, so that kind of raised some concerns with me,” Megan recalled of an otherwise “semi-normal” conversation that day Mizell vanished.
The daughter said she later learned her mother left to confront her partner and the alleged lover soon after the phone call ended.
Megan has since discovered that just 15 minutes after their phone call, her mom allegedly went to confront her fiance and a woman named ‘Jennifer’ about their affair.

A month after the missing Colorado grandmother’s mysterious disappearance, Marlena’s partner Kurt posted a message on Facebook that read: “My fiancée has been missing now 30 days. It been a heart breaking crisis in our family and we’re all praying for her safe return.”
“I pray every day God brings Marlena back to me, and her whole family safely and soon. We haven’t found any trace of her car, her, or anything she left out of here with, which is very little.”
According to KCNC in Denver, Mizell was reported missing by Kurt the day after she disappeared.
The Colorado Bureau of Investigation is assisting in the investigation.
The South Fork Police Department is requesting assistance from the public in locating Mizell.
Mizell’s daughters said they have been unable to contact their mother in the weeks since the Colorado grandmother mysteriously went missing, and that there has been no activity on her bank account.
Police have not said if they suspect foul play. According to Fox affiliate KDVR, she was last seen wearing a black one-piece jumpsuit.
No one has been identified as a suspect or a person of interest, and no arrests have been made.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the South Forks Police Department.
Mizell has high cheek bones and scars on her chin and neck. Her ears are pierced and she has two tattoos: a hummingbird near her stomach and a butterfly on her ankle.
