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.
Kelsie Jean Schelling, 21, lives in the Larimer Square area. Earlier this month, however, she traveled to Pueblo to visit her boyfriend -- and she hasn't been seen since.
Yesterday brought the first break in the case: Her car was found in the Pueblo area. But if anyone knows where she is, they're not talking yet. See photos, video and contact information below.
Here's the simple message in the first post on Help Find Kelsie, a Facebook page launched this week:
Kelsie Jean Schelling has been missing since Monday, Feb. 4th. Her whereabouts are currently unknown, and no one is aware of her condition.
Also included are photos like this one....
...and this one: Here's other information about Kelsie shared on the page. Note that her 22nd birthday is Monday:
