A heartbroken dad will never find out what happened to his missing daughter after he tragically died of cancer.

Gene Moorman, 87, tragically lost his battle with cancer on November 11 – months after his daughter Suzanne Morphew disappeared in Maysville, Colorado, USA.

An obituary for the deceased man revealed he did not expect Suzanne to be found alive and well after she vanished on Mother's Day, May 10.

Her husband Barry was the last person to see her alive, claiming she left home to go on a bike ride but never returned.

The mum-of-two was reported missing after daughters were unable to contact her. 

A major investigation involving local police and the FBI has been launched to help find Suzanne.

Her brother Andy said he was doubtful his sister was still alive and has urged Barry to take a polygraph test, something which he has reportedly refused to do so far.

He told Fox News: ”My sister was just the sweetest person ever and anyone would have been happy to be friends or neighbors with her.”

“I’m not going to give up. I'm coming back out there to look."

"If you're not guilty, step up to the plate.”

Barry Morphew denies any role in his wife's disappearance

Barry Morphew has denied any role in his wife's disappearance and denies he has been offered a polygraph by detectives.

"My wife and I have been in love since 1988 and she’s the love of my life. And I continue to search for her every day and I will until I find her. I promise and I promised my girls that,"  he told the station's reporter, but declined to do the interview in-person nor wished the recording of the call be aired.

He continued: “This is the most devastating thing that has ever happened to me.”

"But I have got to keep my faith and trust in God. And Suzanne trusted the Lord and if one person got saved from this, she would think it was worth it.”

"And we are just a Godly, loving, caring, family and this thing is just a tragedy."

Morphew has previously suggested that his wife may have been attacked by an animal or may have been killed by a stranger but has continued to search for the mother of his two daughters.

He said: “I am afraid of what is out there.”

”People don’t know the truth, so they’re gonna think what they’re gonna think."
