Pueblo Police follow new leads in Kelsie Schelling case

Posted: Updated:
PUEBLO -

The Pueblo Police Department and CBI agents, will be conducting searches in Pueblo due to new leads in connection to a cold case investigation involving the disappearance of Kelsie Schelling in 2013.

22-year old Kelsie Schelling disappeared in southwestern Pueblo on February 4, 2013. On that same day Schelling found out she was eight weeks pregnant, and drove from Denver to Pueblo to meet up with her boyfriend, Donthe Lucas, where she was last seen.

Several days had passed and there was no sign of Schelling. Pueblo Police found Schelling's car abandoned at Saint Mary-Corwin Medical Center days later. 

Police discovered that on the morning of February 5, one day after Kelsie arrived in Pueblo, her car was recorded on surveillance video in a Walmart parking lot on Northern Ave.

Police said, that same morning somebody, later identified as her boyfriend Donthe Lucas, used Schelling's bank card to withdraw money from the ATM.

Police interviewed Lucas, where he denied being involved in Schelling's disappearance, with no solid evidence, police let Lucas go.

Lucas was however charged with identity theft for using Schelling's ATM card, but the DA dropped the charge since where was evidence showing she had allowed him to use the card in the past.

The Schelling family has been adamant about finding their daughter, as rallies and searches have been conducted, but many years have passed and no leads have been found.

The Pueblo Police and CBI say they cannot provide details about the elements of the searches, but new searches will be prompted by recent leads as part of the ongoing cold case investigation.

The searches will be conducted in the area where Schelling was last seen in southwest Pueblo. 

“While we cannot offer any comment about this active investigation, we want the community to be aware that this case remains a priority for the Pueblo Police Department,” said Pueblo Police Chief Troy Davenport. “Our police department is committed to helping to bring justice to Kelsie and for her family.”

If anyone has any information regarding this incident, they are urged to submit a tip to the Pueblo Police.
