A year after Lashaya Stine's disappearance in Aurora, family again makes public plea

AURORA, Colo. – It’s been a year since an Aurora teenager who was eager to begin a potential summer job opportunity was last seen by her family. On the anniversary of her disappearance, her loved ones are again pleading for any information that may lead them to her.

In a YouTube video posted Saturday morning by the Aurora Police Department, Stine’s relatives tearfully plea for her to come back and for anyone who is holding her to release her.

You can view the video below: 

Stine was last seen at around 2:30 a.m. on July 15 in the area of East Montview Boulevard and Peoria Street in northwestern Aurora.

While dozens of officers have been involved in the search for Stine, leads haven’t been able to advance the case.

The last workable lead regarding Stine’s disappearance was a video police released in August of last year. In it, Stine can be seen walking down the street by street.

Stine is 5-foot-7-inches tall and weighs about 150 pounds. She has long black hair, brown eyes and a quarter-sized, round scar on her chest. Police said she typically wears a silver watch on her left wrist.

On the anniversary of her disappearance, the Aurora Police Department is also raising the reward up to $6,000 for information that could lead them to information to her whereabouts.

If you have any information about Stine, you are asked to call the Aurora Police Department at (303) 739-6130 or (303) 739-6109. If you wish to submit an anonymous tip, you can do so by calling Crime Stoppers at (720) 913-7867.
