Fiancé of missing Colorado woman arrested for her murder

A relative of Kelsey Berreth - who was last seen on Thanksgiving Day but is presumed dead - tells PEOPLE she was "hoping ... we'd have more concrete details as to why" following a news conference Friday where authorities announced the arrest of Patrick Frazee, Berreth's fiancé and the father of their 1-year-old daughter.

"He is now being held in the Teller County Jail".

Greg Couch says Patrick Frazee was arrested Friday morning in Woodland Park, Colorado, and has been charged with first degree murder.

It was Berreth's mom, Cheryl, who reported her missing, leading many to wonder why Frazee hadn't alerted police to her disappearance sooner.

Patrick Frazee's arrest came almost one month after Berreth, the mother of his 1-year-old daughter, vanished on Thanksgiving Day near Woodland Park, a city between Denver and Colorado Springs. Frazee had told police that the couple met sometime that afternoon so he could pick up the child.

"Her voice was fine", Cheryl said, noting that they discussed "small things" such as a recipe. He said the search and arrest affidavits will stay sealed for now.

Formal charges are pending and could take as long as 10 days to file, District Attorney Dan May said.

Frazee's attorney, Jeremy Loew, did not immediately return PEOPLE's call and email for comment following Frazee's arrest. Police said the only signs of Berreth after Thanksgiving were some text messages and that location data suggested the phone by November 25 was near Gooding, Idaho, 800 miles (1,290 kilometers) from her house. Gooding is roughly 800 miles northwest of Woodland Park.

On Friday, De Young did not say when or how Berreth may have been killed but noted that investigators have recovered a "number of items" suggesting she was killed at her Woodland Park residence. "This is completely out of character".

Police also said Doss Aviation had accounted for all their planes and there was no reason to believe she used someone else's plane for a flight. "She's reliable, considerate and honest".

Frazee was arrested by police and agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation at his ranch in Florissant, 13 miles (21 km) west of Woodland Park.

Public records show that property associated with Mr Frazee's name in Florissant covers 35 acres.

De Young confirmed that Berreth's phone had pinged off a tower in southern Idaho and that was where it ended up.

Woodland Park Police also announced they would hold a news conference at noon ET, according to a post on the department's Facebook page.

Frazee voluntarily released his phone to be searched and allowed officers to take a DNA sample on December 12, his lawyer said.

Investigators arrived at the home shortly after 7 a.m., according to ABC News, and Frazee was seen in handcuffs shortly afterward.
