The search continues for Kara Nichols, 19, who disappeared from Colorado Springs more than 3 months ago.
The case has gone cold and few leads have been coming into the El Paso County Sheriff's Office.
Kara's mother, Julia constantly worries about what may have happened to her.
"It's possible she went out with somebody she knew thinking it was a modeling assignment," she said. "She could have been lured away or trafficked for all I know."
They are all possibilities the El Paso County Sheriff's Office can't rule out.
At first, deputies thought she might have ran away, but that theory quickly faded when detectives realized her phone and facebook page had not been used following her disappearance.
"That in itself is somewhat concerning," Sheriff Terry Maketa said.
Countless hours have been spent keeping the search for Kara alive through flyers and social media. So far, it's yielded little success.
Kara was last seen Oct. 9 when her roommate reported that she was heading to Denver for a job interview.
Anyone with information about Kara's whereabouts are asked to contact the El Paso County Sheriff's Office at 634-STOP.
