The El Paso County Sheriff's Office says the investigation into a missing woman's whereabouts remains active after the most recent tip failed to pan out.
The tip involved a previous sighting by a business owner on Fillmore in Colorado Springs -- the person said they had seen Kara Nichols and an unidentified man.
The Sheriff's Office says investigators reviewed surveillance footage from several businesses in the Fillmore area and conducted numerous interviews. They were able to locate the man -- only to learn that the woman he had been seen with was not Nichols, but his current girlfriend.
Nichols, 19, was last seen on the evening of Oct. 9, when roommates say she was heading to Denver. No one has seen or heard from her since. Investigators say she left without her purse and money, as though she was not planning on staying away long. All cell phone activity also ceased after she disappeared.
Her family says the lack of communication is extremely out of character, and do not believe Nichols would stop talking to them so suddenly.

The Sheriff's Office says investigators are confident someone knows specific details about Nichols' disappearance, and ask for anyone with information to step forward. If you believe you could help with this case, call 719-390-5555 or email information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
