No human remains found in most recent Kelsie Schelling search
A new three-day search for Kelsie Schelling in Pueblo has concluded without the discovery of any human remains, according to KKTV 11 News.
According to Pueblo Police Department, new information was received that was “significant enough” to begin a new series of searches focused on areas near where Schelling was last known to be in southwestern Pueblo. PPD, Colorado Bureau of Investigation, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and NecroSearch were involved in the Nov. 8-10 search.
Schelling disappeared Feb. 4, 2013, at the age of 21, when traveling from her home in Denver to Pueblo to visit Donthe Lucas, her boyfriend and purported father of her unborn child.
Last week’s searches included multiple locations and the use of bloodhound dogs and manual searches.
Pueblo Police Chief Troy Davenport said in a press conference, “Without a doubt, someone knows something out there... I beseech you to do the right thing. Come forward and give that information.”
Laura Saxton, Schelling’s mother, made a plea to anyone out there who knows anything to speak up, encouraging people to contact Pueblo Crime Stoppers at 719-542-7867 or www.pueblocrimestoppers.com. She also reiterated the $50,000 reward her family is offering for the direct return or location of Schelling. “We just want to bring her home,” Saxton said.
Though last week’s search is finished, Davenport said beforehand that “we will continue to work on the case. We’re committed to finding answers and to bringing closure to Kelsie Schelling’s family.” He also said, “As leads come in, we will commit resources to wherever those leads take us.”
