Schelling's boyfriend, and the father of her unborn child, has been identified as Donthe Lucas. His Facebook page is loaded with photos of him playing basketball for Northeastern Junior College. Here's an example:

In her statement, shared at the news conference and on view below in its entirety, Laura Saxton, Schelling's mother, revealed that her daughter got confirmation of her pregnancy on February 4. Doctor's records confirm that she was eight weeks pregnant.

What happened next? "Cell phone records show that Kelsie sent picture messages of her ultrasound pictures taken that day to family members and also to Donthe and his mother," Saxton stated. "Cell phone records also show that Donthe asked Kelsie to come to Pueblo when she got off of work that night because he needed to speak with her in person.

"We know that Kelsie made it to Pueblo and did meet up with Donthe," Saxton continued. "No one has seen or heard from her since."

Saxton didn't come right out and accuse Lucas of wrongdoing, but she came close. "We are not satisfied with Donthe's original account of the events leading up to Kelsie's disappearance," she said, adding, "We are informed that he has since refused to speak with the Pueblo Police Department."

In an attempt to move the investigation forward, Schelling's family is offering a reward of up to $10,000 to anyone who can help lead to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons behind Kelsie's disappearance. Such folks are encouraged to phone the Pueblo Police Department on a special line devoted to Schelling: 1-855-4-KELSIE.

Look below to see two videos -- one from a March press conference, the other 9News coverage of yesterday's event. They're followed by complete statements from Schelling family members and photos of Schelling.

'Peter Griffin' & or 'Stan Smith', could EVEN solve this case .


 The majority of detectives are dumber than 'purposely & intentionally ',  

idiotic cartoon characters .


If I weren't blind & could drive, I'd grab a few friends and beat the confession out of Lucas .

You know, 'Cop-Style' !!!

 "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."

'nuff said.

Praise Jesus.


Er, it really seems like the solution is standing right in front of law enforcement. Lucas was the last person who saw her, she had just told him she was pregnant, and he accessed her bank account after she went missing. And LE hasn't solved this?



I used to praise Elway til I witnessed him shake hands w/ BOTH Bush's .

His game I will ALWAYS admire & respect , but John Elway as a 'normal' citizen, can go directly to Hotay's imaginary hell ......
