K9s assist in search for Kelsie Schelling

Search efforts resumed Wednesday morning for information relating to the disappearance of a pregnant woman who was last seen in 2013.

PUEBLO COUNTY - Search efforts resumed Wednesday morning for information relating to the disappearance of a pregnant woman who was last seen in 2013.

Pueblo Police used a K9 to search an open space west of Pueblo for clues related to the whereabouts of Kelsie Schelling. KOAA-TV reports crews used a backhoe and shovel to excavate around a drainage ditch in the area on Monday.

This isn’t far from a home where Schelling’s ex-boyfriend Donthe Lucas lived that was the site of a search two weeks ago.

Investigators collected several items of evidence, but didn’t say what exactly those items were.

Schelling, 21, was last seen on Feb. 4, 2013 – one day after she sent her eight week ultrasound to Lucas.

He had asked to drive from Denver to Pueblo. She arrived at an area Walmart at around 11 p.m., and texted she was “tired of waiting” around an hour later. She was never heard from again.

Later that morning, reports say Lucas took out $400 from an ATM in Schelling’s car using her card. He was also filmed driving her car to the Walmart parking lot. Three days later, a hooded figure drove off in the car, which was ultimately found at a hospital.
Lucas remains a person of interest but has never been charged.

Schelling’s family is offering a $50,000 reward for information about her disappearance.
