Colorado Woman Still Missing After One Year

By  | 

It's been one year since a young Colorado woman disappeared in Southern Colorado. Kelsie Schelling was last seen February 4th in Pueblo and no one has heard from her since.

As you may recall, Kelsie lived in Denver and traveled to Pueblo to visit her boyfriend. At that time, she was 8 weeks pregnant with his child. Surveillance video caught Kelsie's car on tape the day she disappeared. Her car was parked at a local Walmart, then later found at St. Mary-Corwin Medical Center. Authorities tell us details of that are still unclear.

11 News spoke to Dan Corsentino, the private investigator Kelsie's family hired to help. Corsentino says Kelsie's disappearance is still a mystery. He says only a few clues have popped up throughout the year, but none of those leads have led to finding Kelsie.

"If she's indeed deceased at this point in the investigation, which we're thinking that could be the case. It's unknown where she is," said Corsentino.

We also spoke to Kelsie's mother, Laura Saxton, on the phone. She tells us that this past year has been difficult for her, but she's not giving up. She just wants to find her daughter. Over the past year, she's organized search parties and events to help find her daughter.
She's even set up a Facebook page and tipline so that others can stay connected and receive updates on Kelsie's disappearance.

"I'll be looking the rest of my life. I pray that it doesn't take that long. That's my daughter and I love her so much and miss her so much. There's no way that I'll ever give up."

Pueblo police have yet to name a person of interest in Kelsie's disappearance. If you have any information on Kelsie's whereabouts, the family has set up a tip line: 1-855-4-Kelsie. You can also call Pueblo Crime Stoppers at 542-STOP. You don't have to give your name.
