Kara Nichols search: Is model's photo on Las Vegas escort website false lead?
The bio ends with this postscript, which speaks volumes about the world of modeling:
NOTE TO PHOTOGRAPHERS -- due to my financial situation I am mainly focused on paid work. I am still open for TF shoots but paid work takes priority for now. Please contact me for serious requests only.
As for the details of Nichols' disappearance, they're provided on the Help Find Kara Nichols Facebook page:
Kara Nichols left her home at 6700 block of Mission Road in Colorado Springs bound for Denver on October 9th only to not be seen again. The last call on her cell phone was at 11:45 p.m. October 9, 2012.
More information appears on this missing persons flier:
Nichols is said to have traveled to Denver in the company of two women whose names have not yet surfaced. Law enforcers have reportedly interviewed one and are on the lookout for the other.
Then, in recent days, a new development: a photo of Nichols turned up on what's described as a "Las Vegas escort-based website."
Continue for additional information about the search for Kara Nichols, including photos. This news prompted a flurry of reports that Nichols may be in Nevada working as a prostitute, even though it's not exactly a requirement that such sites post the actual photos of those in their employ.
Hence, Nichols's family is sharing the following message:
We ask reputable media networks and the public to continue to report the fact Kara is missing and has been since October 9th. There has been no communication with anyone, no login of any social media sites and with no attempt to access her cell -- for us, whatever happened to Kara happened on October 9th and we have no leads to prove Kara is in Vegas or in any position she can reach out for help. We thank investigators for following up on these cruel hoax attempts and addressing the rumors so they can get back to the real investigation of finding our daughter.
Please continue using the flyers and photos on this site -- these are the only one approved by investigators and the family. Any other materials you may think are valid are not. We know someone out there knows where our daughter is and what has happened to her, we ask you to call Detective Porter immediately or email your tip into investigators.
Detective Cliff Porter at (719) 390-5555 or firstname.lastname@example.org
