Garfield County sheriff’s deputies on Thursday were looking for a possibly suicidal woman who has been missing since Monday.

Connie Brors, 47, of Rifle was last seen on Monday driving a white 1997 Toyota 4-Runner with Colorado license plate 451-BMX. She was wearing jeans and a purple button-down blouse.

Lorra Nichols, a close friend of Brors’, was the last to hear from her.

“I’ve been looking for her since Monday night,” Nichols said. “I’m just trying to get the word out.”

Nichols last heard from Brors at 5:30 p.m. Monday. That’s when Brors indicated that she may commit suicide.

She was having problems and extreme financial difficulty and couldn’t stand the pain anymore, Nichols said.

Members of Brors’ family have gathered from around the country to try and find her.

“Somebody in Aspen volunteered their airplane to do an aerial search,” Nichols said.

Garfield County Sheriff Lou Vallario said deputies have been searching for Brors since she was reported missing.

“We’re guessing that she’s either gone through with it or she doesn’t want to be found right now,” he said.
