    Missing Junction woman's vehicle found ablaze

    Paige Birgfeld, of Grand Junction, was last seen Thursday.
    By Rocky Mountain News
    July 2, 2007
    A missing Grand Junction woman's car was found engulfed in flames last night, a television station reported this morning.

    KJCT said police and fire departments responded to the blaze about 10 p.m. in northwest Grand Junction.

    Colorado Bureau of Investigation agents are at the scene today, KJCT said.

    Mesa County authorities have been looking for Paige Birgfeld, 34, who has been missing since Thursday.

    Birgfeld was last seen wearing a blue-flowered tube top and blue jean shorts and riding in a red 2005 Ford Focus, Colorado license plate 022-OOX.

    The woman also goes by the names Paige Dixon and Paige Beigler. She is 5 feet, 4 inches tall, about 110 pounds with sandy blond hair and hazel eyes.

    Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Mesa County sheriff's office at 970-244-3500.

    NO WAY!!!! How did you find that? That's scary. And hadn't she mentioned something about getting back together with an ex?

    Yes, Becky, someone on the hijack thread said they copied posts.

    Someone should notify Greg and Deb to lock/back-up any of her information here!

    Maybe I will...

    She did recently post about the ex being back in her life. Yikes! Should someone forward those messages to the authorities?

    Someone here said they already copied them and reported them. I just sent a message to Admin Greg to do the same from his end since his servers would have more information!

    YES, this is scary. I went back and looked too - It wasn't that she was getting back together with an ex (someone else I think had said that about themselves) but that he was moving back to the state and would only be 3 hours from them. Holy cr@p. This gives me a BAAADD feeling..... I'll be praying for her safe return.

    Oh how terrible! Her last log-on date here was 6/27/07 and the report says she's been missing since Thursday 6/28/07.

    Praying that she is ok...

    Maybe we can help them find her or at least know who to look for. Even though we don't have a name, surely someone where she's at will know his name.

    I'm just being curious, but why was she going by different names?
    I really hope that she is found soon --safe and sound. I will keep her in my prayers.
     
  15. Hi folks. I hope you don't mind me posting this here. I've met Paige a few times and also work for the newspaper in her city. Anyone who has any information to pass on about her, we'd appreciate it if you'd send it to us:

    tpowell@gjds.com

    We'll pass along info to officers investigating the case as we get it. Thanks.

    I'm guessing past marriages - the news listed them all in case - I know she has 1 ex - maybe 2?

    There may me a maiden name involved, as well as a married name, plus if she was married again.

    I have been married twice, but have had 5, yes 5, different last names, thanks to my mother's marriages. :)

    Based on the story in the link posted by Becky, it doesn't look like the kids' dad is around right now.

    "Birgfeld’s father, Frank Birgfeld, said Rob Dixon is currently en route from the East Coast to be with the family and the couple’s children, ages 8, 5 and 3."

    I signed on unable to sleep (almost midnight here) and thought I'd browse a little while for business ideas. Now that seems so trivial at the moment....

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention KG. I'm going back to bed and holding my DH a little tighter.

    I just looked through past posts & saw that her 2nd husband is the father of her 3 kids. The first husband is the one that she has recently gotten back together with.

    He and I didn't have any kids, they are all from my second husband, who won't like hearing about me having anything to do with the first husband again. I met him when I was 15 and we were married 8 years, about 10 years ago. He was a total stoner and has given that up, which has increased his intelligence level and maturity level immensely. He also rarely worked, letting me be the bread winner, and even though he earns enough to make it (owns a nice home, has 2 paid off cars), he hasn't worked once in the 4 weeks I've been re-acquainted with him. Mostly, our marriage dissolved because I became incredibly hormonal and wanted a baby soooo bad, and he didn't want one yet (probably smart since he was a pot head!). So, now I have the babies, don't need that one fixed anymore. From the "What an honor to be asked" post.

    I'm just sick at the thought of this. I know there's nothing that I can physically do to help, but I want to. Anyone else with that helpless feeling?

    Ugh. This isn't supposed to happen to real people.

    I can't believe this, I had NO idea. I have been waiting for her to send me her address so I could mail a check for that TW show she had. I thought it was odd that I didn't hear from her. She also emailed me a letter for my business, too, but that OMG, now that I look at it was on 6/23.

    And yet, this is an illustration of what a great community this is. Look at how we all care for each other and want to help, even just through prayer.

    My stomach hurts....

    My dh and I were just talking last night about how much violence has been happening lately between family members. I don't want to jump to any conclusions about this guy. Hopefully, he is uninvolved, for the sake of those poor kids.
    Just recently the neighbors of a friend of mine were all just shot and killed. Wife and three kids shot by the husband. He tried to say the wife killed the kids then herself.
    It's just a sad world that we live in. It really is scary and makes you wonder if you really ever know someone.
    Even if you aren't a praying person. Take a moment and pray or be still for Paige and all those other women out there who might need a prayer and a safe path home.
