  • Details of Disappearance
    Sarah Skiba was with her father, Paul Skiba, during a weekend visitation. Paul, Sarah, and an employee, Lorenzo Chivers, were last seen in Morrison, CO at a moving job.

    Since their disappearance, evidence has been found in Paul's place of business that would lead investigators to believe that all three are victims of foul play. The moving truck they used was parked with bullet holes, blood and a bloody piece of scalp inside. A DNA test revealed that the blood belonged to Paul and Sarah Skiba, the scalp to Paul. Chivers, who has also not been seen since, was the father of a son and daughter the same age as Sarah.

    Investigators learned that the truck had left the lot at about 9 p.m. and was returned about midnight. Police theorize the three were killed at the lot and the truck was used to dispose of their bodies. It was then driven back to the lot and parked. No trace of the three has ever been found.

    There has been speculation that Paul was killed because of a drug dispute.
