Authorities have an abandoned car, a ransacked home, and a missing Colorado woman on their hands and are now asking for the public’s help.
Forty-one-year-old Kimberlee Graves, was last seen at her Fort Collins home on Monday, Dec. 4.
On Dec. 8, a friend called the police asking for a welfare check on Graves after not hearing from her for several days.
When police knocked at the door of her home on Akin Avenue that day, nobody answered, and her car was not in the driveway.

Two days later, the same friend who called police asking for a welfare check went to Graves’s home and found it had been ransacked. The friend again called the police.
On Dec. 13, police found her car, a red Toyota RAV4 abandoned in a parking garage.
“While detectives have not found evidence of injury, the suspicious circumstances have caused concern for her safety,” Fort Collins police said in a Facebook post.
Graves’s neighbor of eight years, Daniel Cordova, told Fox31 he was worried about the mother of two, saying she was too trusting.
“Too friendly. People in her house all the time. She had a nice 2015 [Toyota] RAV4 and she would just let people drive it. Next thing I know it was sideswiped, the window was broken out. I see someone keyed bad words into her door,” Cordova said. “I kind of got onto her about trusting people too much—and now look.”
Graves’s LinkedIn page says she worked as a massage therapist and owned her own massage business called Spirit Tree Massage.
“I have a strong passion for healing and helping others find total balance in body, mind and spirit through different modalities of massage and reiki,” she wrote on her page.
According to LInkedIn, she owned her own business for the last six years.
Police are now asking the public’s help in locating her.
“There’s no evidence that would indicate injury to Kimberlee, but because of the kind of suspicious circumstances, we are asking the community’s help to locate her,” Kate Kimble, the public relations manager for Fort Collins Police, told 9NEWS.
A request to Fort Collins police about the whereabouts of her children was not immediately returned.
