Investigators resume search in Schelling disappearance case

Posted: Updated:

Pueblo Police say another search for Kelsie Schelling will take place on Friday morning. Detectives and agents will return to the confluence of the Arkansas River and Fountain Creek.

Pueblo Police and the Colorado Bureau of Investigation continued the search for evidence in the disappearance of the 22-year-old woman at three locations on Thursday.

Schelling was last seen in 2013 on the day she informed her boyfriend she was 8 weeks pregnant. 

Thursday's efforts focused on three locations, one near the confluence of the Arkansas River and Fountain Creek, the other between the south side of Minnequa Lake and Pueblo Boulevard, and lastly near 40th and Dillon Drive.

Kelsie's mom, Laura Saxton, says the last two days of searching have been good, but emotionally exhausting. 

"I wouldn't want to not be here...we appreciate the fact that they at least let us, even though we cant be part of the searches, we can still be on the perimeter and observe." said Saxton. "It's harder just because I'm tired...we have done a lot of traveling back and forth the last couple days so the fatigue leads to more emotion of course."

Saxton is once again asking that if anyone has information about this case-no matter how small it may seem-to please come forward.

Authorities would not detail what specific tips led them to the properties. The search on Wednesday took place behind a home on Savannah Drive with  heavy machinery, personnel with digging implements and cadaver dogs.

It was another search and one that Kelsie's family hopes will be the last. Laura Saxton, Kelsie's mom, said, "We're going to be going through our fifth holiday season without Kelsie and her baby, and I can't tell you what torture that is." 

Saxton says her family is still offering a $50,000 reward for Kelsey's direct return or location. 

Earlier this year, authorities conducted digs at the former family home of Schelling's boyfriend and in a culvert nearby.
