Pueblo group vows to continue search for Kelsie Schelling

Posted: Updated:
PUEBLO -

The news of an arrest made in Kelsie Schelling's disappearance came as a shock to Lisa Helvey.

"That's what I did," she told News5, after holding her hand over her mouth.

"I was like, "oh my god, oh my god.  What do  I do?'"

Laurie Ann Riddock says she was at a loss for words.

"I just started crying.  I couldn't even talk," she said.

The pair has spent almost five years now, organizing countless searches for Kelsie Schelling--calling themselves the Steel City Search Angels.

But each time, they've come back empty-handed from their search.

"It's hard on your heart," said Helvey.

"It's hard on your mind.  It's hard on your mind.  And you see her mom, and you know you have to keep doing this for her," she added.

But finally, the biggest break so far in this case--the man Laura Saxton has suspected this whole time, now charged with her daughter's murder.

"There is some satisfaction from this happening, but as far as any peace to me--it really doesn't," said Saxton during an phone interview with News5.
 
"Kelsie still hasn't been found. That's still my main goal is to do whatever it takes to bring her home," she added.

Which means the Steel City Search Angels still have work to do.

"I don't know if the hard part is over," said Helvey.

"I think the hard part is getting to know where she's at and that's what we need," she added.

They vow to keep searching--however long it may take--to finally bring Kelsie home.

"I'll hit 90 with my cane and my walker--and I'll be out there with my little cane searching.  I don't care," said Helvey.

"And we'll hold each other up," Riddock added, with a smile.
