COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - A woman from Colorado Springs was believed to be headed to Denver for work in early October, but hasn't been heard from since.
According to El Paso County Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt. Joe Roybal, Kara Nichols, 19, was last seen in Colorado Springs. She was normally in regular contact with her family and friends and was last seen on Oct. 9, but has not been heard from since Oct. 10.
Roybal said investigators are concerned her disappearance could be suspicious. They issued an alert for her on Thursday.
"We're at the point of the investigation where we are looking for leads or help for the community but we have been working on this case for some time," said Roybal. "We're just asking if anybody has seen her, or if she sees this herself, that she contacts us or her family to let us know she is okay."
A page on ModelMayhem.com lists her as a model looking for work.
"I've done mostly lingerie shoots so far but I'm extremely open minded," her bio states.
On Friday, Royball said she was last believed to be driving to Denver for a modeling job, although she worked at a Colorado Springs restaurant. Police are also talking to her co-workers there.
Nichols is described as white, 5 feet 8 inches tall, 120 pounds with blond hair and green eyes.
Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Cliff Porter at 719-520-7227.
