"My sister was murdered," her brother, Andrew Moorman said, ABC affiliate Denver 7 reports. "And she was hidden within a three-and-a-half-hour window. So that — I can draw a circle on that and tell you she's within that circle. And that's what I know happened."

Moorman’s independent search, which the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office and the CBI are supporting, will run from Thursday through Tuesday.

“I just want to find my little sister,” Moorman told FOX21 News. “I want to bring her back home and give her a proper burial.”

Hundreds of volunteers from Colorado and other states, including Indiana, where Moorman and Morphew grew up, are helping him.

A Gofundme to help defray the costs associated with the search has raised nearly $13,000 as of Thursday morning.

Volunteers will walk the rough, mountainous, wooded terrain in the area to look for any sign of the missing mother.

They will scour nearby lakes with boats and SONAR equipment and use search dogs and drones to find any clue as to what happened to her.

“I have very good intelligence,” he told Denver 7. “Very good intelligence. Maybe I don't know everything the FBI knows, but I know a bunch of it."

He added, "I'm going to get results.”

The last time Moorman saw his sister was at Christmas, he told the station. On April 30, he wished her a Happy Birthday.

“She responded back to me on May the 2nd,” he said. “And that was the last communication I had with her.”

On the day Morphew went missing, Barry was out of town for work. Her two daughters were on a camping trip in another state.

Australian convicted of murdering 2 women, acquitted of 3rd

  Australian convicted of murdering 2 women, acquitted of 3rd CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — A judge on Thursday convicted a man of murdering two women who disappeared while going home from a night out with friends in the Australian west coast city of Perth. Bradley Robert Edwards, 51, was acquitted of murder in a third woman's disappearance. The crimes occurred in the 1990s, but he was not arrested until 2016. Sarah Spiers, 18, Jane Rimmer, 23, and Ciara Glennon, 27, vanished without witnesses while making their way home from the city's up-market Claremont nightlife precinct in 1996 and 1997. The bodies of Rimmer and Glennon were found in woodland within weeks of their disappearances.

Investigators searched the area and found her bike at the bottom of a hill and one personal item – but couldn't find her.

Her husband has said he believes she may have been attacked by a mountain lion.

Moorman thinks otherwise, saying that had had been attacked by a mountain lion, there would be some evidence of that, Denver 7 reports.

He doesn’t think she left the bike where it was found, either.

"You couldn't have ridden off that cliff without being severely hurt," he said, Denver 7 reports. "There certainly would have been evidence of injury at the bottom of that hill and there was none. So I believe the bike was picked up and thrown over the hill by human hands."

Barry and Suzanne's daughters haven’t commented publicly on the search.

Morphew’s husband posted a reward of $100,000 for information about her disappearance, which a family friend increased to $200,000.
