The husband of missing mom Suzanne Morphew provided an inconsistent story to investigators and refused two polygraph tests, one of her relatives claims.  

Suzanne, 49, has not been seen since she reportedly set off on a solo bike ride from her home in Maysville, Colorado on Mother's Day, May 10. 

On Monday - exactly three months on from Suzanne's disappearance - the family member spoke with Fox 21, saying they have suspicions about her long-time husband, Barry Morphew.  

According to the relative - who asked for to remain anonymous - 'Barry has refused two polygraph tests and a critical analysis test... and data collected from his truck did not match up with what he told investigators'. 

Local police would not confirm or deny the relative's claims when approached by Fox 21. 

Barry has been keeping a low profile after announcing a £100,000 reward for his wife's safe return a short time after she disappeared. That figure was later doubled by a family friend. The £200,000 reward still remains on offer. 

Investigators have not ruled anyone out as a person of interest.

Suzanne was reported as missing on the evening of May 10 after her two adult daughters, Mallory and Macy, failed to get in touch with her. 

On the day Suzanne vanished, Barry was reportedly in Denver at a training course for his job as a volunteer firefighter.

While it was initially reported that Suzanne had headed off on a bike ride, no eyewitnesses reported seeing her leave her home or out cycling. 

Her bike was found on a trail a short distance from her home.

On May 17, a week after her disappearance, Barry released a video pleading with the public to help find his missing wife. 

 'Oh Suzanne, if anyone is out there and can hear this, that has you, please, we'll do whatever it takes to bring you back,' Morphew stated in the video.

'We love you; we miss you; your girls need you.

No questions asked, however much they want - I will do whatever it takes to get you back. Honey, I love you, I want you back so bad.'

Two weeks after her disappearance, police took custody of the £1.5 million Morphew residence to carry out a search.

Investigators conducted a thorough search of Barry and Suzanne's £1.5 million home in Maysville, Colorado 

Cops were seen carrying evidence bags and equipment into the home.

A CSI photographer was spotted on the premises, and evidence bags were pictured being brought out and loaded into a van before the house handed it back to the family on May 28.

The FBI also spent several days searching around a construction site in the nearby town of Salida, where Barry had been working just prior to Suzanne's disappearance. 

A woman living across the street from the site claimed she was awoken by the sound of loud machinery on May 9 - the night before Suzanne was reported as missing.  

'At the very first I thought it was a truck or something maybe parked in my driveway or something, but no, it kept running,' the neighbor told Fox 21 last month. 

Detectives dug around the property and tore up a concrete slab, but were unable to yield any clues as to Suzanne's whereabouts.

Chaffee County Sheriff John Spezze recently stated that a dozen detectives are still working around the clock on the case.  

 On Monday, police were seen out and about quizzing locals on the three-month anniversary of Suzanne's disappearance. 

Meanwhile, several of Suzanne's friends spoke with Fox 21 to mark the somber milestone. 

Suzanne's childhood friend, Michelle Davis, told the news network that they had both bonded over their cancer battles.

More than a dozen detectives are still working around the clock to locate missing Colorado mom Suzanne Morphew two months after she disappeared.

Suzanne (pictured) mysteriously vanished after setting off on a bike ride from her home in Maysville on May 10  

Suzanne beat Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in her teens, and also survived a more recent bout of cancer. 

Michelle said it is 'shocking' that Suzanne survived her health woes only to mysteriously vanish into thin air. 

'Everybody liked Suzanne... she would never try to get noticed.

She had a natural beauty about her,' she recalled. 

Meanwhile, another of Suzanne's pals says she is certain that devoted mom did not disappear of her own volition. 

'She's lots of fun and likes to do things with the girls [her daughters],  and that is why I don't think she would have left on her own,' friend Holly Burman explained.  

The Chaffee County Sheriff's Department is urging anyone with information to call (719) 312-7530.
