A 32-year-old Golden woman who went missing while on a ski trip to the Western Slope was located in Delta Jan. 1. The Delta Police Department, in conjunction with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, began searching for the woman after she failed to return home as expected. She was last seen in Delta Dec. 28, and family members were concerned she might be experiencing a medical issue. Her car was located by the side of the road in Delta, where it had apparently been parked for several days. DPD officers learned she had checked into a local motel, but found no additional clues to her whereabouts. Family members launched a "Find Lacey Oar" Facebook page, which was shared widely throughout the community. In the early morning hours of Jan. 1, Lacey was taken to the emergency room at Delta County Memorial Hospital by an unidentified male. She was not physically injured. DPD officers were able to confirm her identity, but she declined to offer any additional information to the officers.
On Friday night, her family issued a thank you through the Facebook page, saying Lacey was shaken up over the events of the last few days and asking she be allowed to recover in privacy.
On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the Delta County Board of Commissioners called a special meeting to consider the board's response to the Bureau of Land Management's preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA) concerning the lease parcels proposed for the December BLM sale.
Several people from the North Fork were present to provide input.
