Kelsie Jean Schelling, missing Denver woman, was pregnant when she disappeared
Back in February, we told you about the search for Kelsie Jean Schelling, a Denver resident who had disappeared days earlier after traveling to Pueblo to visit her boyfriend.
Big photos below.
Unfortunately, Schelling's whereabouts remain unknown at this writing. But her loved ones haven't given up in their quest to find her, and they revealed at a news conference yesterday a reason for even greater urgency: When she vanished, she was eight weeks pregnant. Photos, videos and details below.
As noted on the Help Find Kelsie Facebook page, Schelling, who turned 22 during the period when she's been missing, was last seen on February 4. The photos and writings shared at the address portray her as a member of a loving family and a person of deep faith. An example of the latter can be seen in this photo....
Kelsie, being a very spiritual and faith-filled person, maintains a running list of favorite Bible verses. Her Bible, filled with fluorescent highlights and personal footnotes, contains her reflections as she continues to pursue her Faith. She would be overwhelmed with the kindness of people and their efforts to find her. So we'd like to share something of hers with you. Please keep Kelsie in your prayers as we continue to bring her home. We cannot afford to stop searching for a person that has such love for her family and friends, and who is inclusive of all.About ten days after Schelling went missing, the accompanying Help Find Kelsie website notes that her car, a Chevrolet Cruze, was located in the parking lot of St. Mary Corwin hospital in Pueblo. Here's a Google map image showing the location:
The following month, the Pueblo Police Department put out photos showing shots of the car circa February 5 and 6 from somewhere else -- the parking lot of an area Walmart. More concerningly, the images depict a male getting into the car and driving it away. Here are the four images shared by the PPD:
Earlier this month, Pueblo officers announced that they had searched for Schelling in various parts of the city using canines "specialized in searching for missing persons." But no breakthroughs emerged.
Then, at the news conference yesterday, Schelling's family revealed new information about the pregnancy that motivated her drive to Pueblo, as well as details about her boyfriend.
