Kara Nichols search: Is model's photo on Las Vegas escort website false lead?

While the loved ones of missing Dylan Redwine had to lobby the national media to cover his story, no encouragement was needed in the search for Colorado Springs' Kara Nichols, nineteen. After all, she's been working as a model, meaning there are plenty of gorgeous photos to display (see samples below), and word that her image was found on a Las Vegas escort service's website only increased interest. But is this last development a false lead?
