Kelsie Jean Schelling's family says missing woman may have been pregnant

DENVER - The family of a woman who disappeared in February says they are now worried that Kelsie Jean Schelling was pregnant when she disappeared.

"Whatever happened to her that night, also involved her unborn child," said Kelsie's mother Laura Saxton. "My first grandchild as well. We are doing everything in our power to find our missing loved one."

Schelling, 22, left Denver and went to Pueblo on the night of Feb. 4 to meet her boyfriend.

Police said according to cell phone records, Schelling made it to Pueblo. Video surveillance from Walmart shows Schelling’s vehicle parked in front of the store on Feb. 5 around 12:05 p.m. The car was left there overnight.

Police said the video showed an unidentified man getting into the car on Feb. 6 at 7:20 a.m. and driving off.

That video won't be released to the public, police said. It is sealed as part of the investigation.

The car was found February 14 at St. Mary Corwin Hospital. Surveillance video showed that the vehicle was parked there about 24 hours after it was picked up at Walmart.

Schelling's family said after Kelsie disappeared her credit card was used once -- they say by her boyfriend, Donthe Lucas.

Lucas was arrested on charges of identity theft. The case is sealed, but police said Lucas posted bond and was released from jail.

Schelling's family suspect Lucas is the father of the child.

Schelling turned 22 just after she disappeared. She's 5 foot 4 inches tall and weighs about 120 pounds. She has three tattoos -- a Chinese symbol on the back of her neck, cursive writing on the inside of her left arm and a fleur-de-lis on her right rib cage.
