PUEBLO -

Investigators with the Colorado Bureau of Investigation are back in Pueblo conducting a dig on the west side of the city.

News 5 is told this is related to the 2013 disappearance of Kelsie Schelling. Her mother is at the scene.

Schelling has been missing since February 4, 2013. She had just learned she was pregnant and drove from Denver to Pueblo to meet up with her boyfriend, Donthe Lucas, who was the last person who saw her. The family is offering a $50,000 reward for information in the case.

Crews are using a backhoe and shovels to excavate around a drainage ditch. The area isn't too far from a home on Manor Ridge where investigators searched two weeks ago. 

In that search, CBI and Pueblo Police searched the backyard of the home where her boyfriend used to live. After 2 days of digging, investigators removed several bags of evidence.
