Forensics team searches for missing pregnant woman

PUEBLO, Colo. -

Investigators searching for a missing pregnant woman say an arrest could be imminent. Kelsie Schelling was last seen in Pueblo on Feb. 4. Police say she came to Pueblo to see her boyfriend.

Kelsie's family hired Dan Corsentino, a private investigator and former Pueblo County sheriff, to work on the case several months ago. Corsentino brought a volunteer team of K-9 forensics with cadaver dogs from New Mexico to look for items that belonged to Kelsie.

"We want to check the culverts, any kind of ditch lines," said Wendy Kessinger, president of Special Operations Inc.

Kessinger and her team searched around Lake Minnequa Friday afternoon. They also searched around the Pueblo Reservoir and Highway 50. Nothing was found.

In February, Kelsie's car was brought to the Walmart on Northern Avenue and then dropped off at St. Mary Corwin Hospital, two blocks from where searchers were looking on Friday.

"It seems like there's a lot of activity on the south side of Pueblo," Corsentino said.

On Friday, search dogs were especially interested in a tall, overgrown field near Lake Minnequa. Searchers said they plan on coming back to re-examine the area.

Searchers say time is only making it more difficult to find any clues that may exist.

Corsentino said, "This case may not have a happy ending."

Kelsie's family is offering a $50,000 reward. If you have information, call Pueblo Crime Stoppers at 719-542-7867 .
