Sheriff's Office Update on Gannon Stauch Case

February 10, 2020

The El Paso County Sheriff's Office continues to investigate the disappearance of Gannon Stauch.  To date there have been 385 tips received, 2,656 hours of investigative work done by Sheriff’s Office in this case and over 3,600 staff hours put into the search efforts.  This has included large scale searches in addition to small, specific searches. The investigation and search processes continue to run parallel with one another.

As tips and leads come in, they are immediately acted upon and the information received is followed up on until the lead is exhausted.  Even the smallest piece of information may prove valuable in solving this case and could consist of things as simple as anyone remembering suspicious persons or vehicles they saw in or around the area close to the date Gannon went missing.

We continue to get numerous tips and messages through our social media platforms.  If you have information you feel is pertinent to Gannon’s case, please call the Sheriff’s Office Tip Line at 719-520-6666, or email [email protected], if you have not already done so.

Please do not send tips through social media platforms as this slows down the investigative process and the timeliness in following up on the tip and/or lead.

This remains a very active and fluid investigation.  Specific details will be released as the investigation allows.  The goal remains to find Gannon and bring him home safely.
