Authorities suspend search for missing Colorado boy

Colorado News

DENVER (The Denver Post) — Authorities have suspended their search in southern Douglas County for an 11-year-old boy who has been missing for more than three weeks.

A spokeswoman for the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office tells The Denver Post the decision to suspend the search for Gannon Stauch on Friday doesn’t mean the investigation is over. The sheriff’s office has led a search west of Larkspur that started Feb. 12 and continued most days since.

The boy was reported missing Jan. 27, and the initial search focused on the area around his neighborhood on the southeastern edge of Colorado Springs. Investigators haven’t said why they shifted their search to northern El Paso County and southern Douglas County.
