WHEAT RIDGE - The family of Annie Meyer, a native Minnesotan who went missing in Colorado, says her remains were found in Park County, Colorado on July 4.
Park County deputies responded to the call around 7 p.m. after a group of people said they had found the remains near their cabin.
Meyer went missing back in February. She had not shown up to work for several weeks and was only communicating by text message with family.
In an interview with KOA Radio on Monday, Mark Meyers said that finding Annie's remains will give the family a kind of closure.
"It's nice to know that she's been found," said Annie's mother, Pat Meyer. "We were hoping it wouldn't be this way, but that was kind of wishful thinking and at least now she's been found."
Pat Meyer and two other family members are driving from Minnesota to Colorado on Monday night. They said they want to be nearby as information from the Wheat Ridge Police Department becomes available. Police have a news conference scheduled for Tuesday morning.
Pat Meyer last heard from her daughter in February. She has made the trip to Colorado five times since to search for her daughter.
"Hopefully the detectives, I don't know how long it might take to give us some answers and maybe there isn't any," Pat Meyer said. "We hope there are. We hope we know who did this to her. We hope to find out."
Pat describes her daughter as the life of the family and adored by everyone. She says they will hold a service for Annie in Colorado because she lived there so long and had so many good friends and co-workers.
Annie Meyer was 51-years-old.
