Family offers new information in missing daughter's case

The family of a missing woman offered new information her disappearance Monday. Kelsie Schelling is the 22-year-old from Denver who was last seen in Pueblo on February 4th.

She was headed to Pueblo to meet up with her boyfriend, Donthe Lucas. That same morning, she had a doctor's appointment in Denver. Her mother, Laura Saxton, says Kelsie was eight weeks pregnant with Lucas' child.

"We all love and miss Kelsie so much and are more deeply saddened to know that whatever happened to her that night also involved her unborn child, my first grandchild as well," said Saxton through tears.

Until now, little has been revealed about the investigation. But her family said police told them someone other than Kelsie, possibly her boyfriend Donthe,used her credit card the day after she disappeared.

Investigators also told the family they believe that same person was driving Kelsie's car in the days before it was left at St. Mary Corwin Hospital in Pueblo that Thursday.

"Surveillance tapes do not show Kelsie in her vehicle after Monday night," said her father, Doug Schelling.

As for her cell phone, Kelsie's parents said she didn't make any calls from her phone after that Monday night she disappeared.

"But text messages were sent until Thursday from Kelsie's phone to pacify family and friends. We do not believe that it was Kelsie texting," added Mr. Schelling.

Her parents believe Kelsie is in trouble, and are asking that search efforts are ramped up.

"We now plead with all citizens of Pueblo, please reach deep into your hearts and if you have any information at all that could lead us to Kelsie, please contact the Pueblo Police Department," said Saxton.

Her mother also said they "hope and pray she is alive and unharmed."

They are offering a $10,000 reward to anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the suspect responsible for her disappearance.

They have set up a public, toll free tip line: 1-855-4-KELSIE. Calls can also go into Pueblo Crime Stoppers.

The family also set up a website to send in tips and provide information about Kelsie:
