Colorado police: Missing mother's remains possibly discarded in several communities

Mead's 1-year-old daughter, Winter Daisy Mead, was found in the custody of her father, Adam Densmore, 32, of Boulder, when he was arrested Wednesday by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol on a child custody warrant, Cordingly said.

Boulder police spokeswoman Shannon Cordingly said the human remains discovered in a dumpster not far from where Densmore was arrested have not yet been identified, but that police are presuming Mead is dead.

Authorities in Oklahoma reportedly recovered the baby, who was unharmed, after Densmore's arrest and placed her in the temporary care of state protective services.

It is possible a portion of her body could be in missing purple luggage.

Police say they believe Mead's body parts could be strewn across the nation in communities through which the suspect traveled.

Boulder, Colorado, police continue to investigate the disappearance of a 25-year-old mother.

Andrew Puzder withdraws from consideration as labor chief
Acosta, 48, a Miami native, serves as dean of Florida International University Law School and was former U.S. On Feb. 15, Puzder announced that he was dropping himself from consideration for Labor Secretary.

The child was with her father Adam Densmore. A positive identification has not been made; however, Boulder police and Okmulgee police have tentatively identified them as Mead based on observations made during the autopsy.

"At this point the arrest warrant is still sealed", Cordingly said. They say detectives now believe that on the evening of February 12, Densmore left Boulder and traveled south to Raton, New Mexico. The pair hadn't been seen since Sunday.

On February 14, police say Densmore drove to Conway, Arkansas where he spent the night. The police report indicates both Mead and Densmore have been living in Boulder, Colorado.

February 15 would be Densmore's last day of travel, taking him to Okmulgee, Oklahoma, when police located him just west of Tulsa. On the morning of February 15, he left Conway, Arkansas and stopped in Okmulgee, Oklahoma before being located and arrested just west of Tulsa, Oklahoma at approximately 1:30 p.m. Anyone who sees a suitcase in an odd location is advised to avoid touching it, and to call local police immediately.

Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call the Boulder Police Department at 303-441-1974.
