UPDATE: Nearly two years after her disappearance, the family of Kelsie Jean Schelling still hasn't given up hope of finding her. Family members and supporters will march from the Pueblo Police Department's headquarters to District Attorney Jeff Chostner's office to encourage authorities to continue investigating her case.
