Gloria Berreth was reported missing on October 4, 1994 after she had not shown up to work at Peterson Airforce base.
Her parents and daughters never heard from her after she said she was going to meet her former husband for an early breakfast at a Colorado Springs diner. Her former husband told police he was scheduled to meet her for breakfast at 6:30 a.m., but she never showed. He waited until 7:00 a.m., then left.
Gloria had divorced her husband Michael Ervin Berreth in 1993, but conflicts between the former couple only got worse over the next year as she filed two restraining orders against him. Gloria had custody of their two daughters who were 5 and 11 in 1994. The girls were at their regular baby sitter's home when Gloria called to say she was going to breakfast.
A few weeks later, her car, a 1991 maroon and red Ford Taurus with Colorado license plate # KAI8506 and 1994 registration was found at the Hancock Plaza shopping center, police said. But there were no clues about who left it there.
The turbulence in the marriage between Gloria and Michael Berreth was documented in court records in the months leading up to her disappearance.
Police tossed all 12 pieces of evidence from Berreth's case, including a camera, calendar, and handgun.
Foul play is suspected.
