Search party for Kelsie Schelling

PUEBLO, Colo -

The family of a missing Denver woman is offering a $10,000 reward for information about her.

Kelsie Schelling disappeared in February and was last seen in Pueblo.

The family is now organizing a search party for her this weekend.

As you drive down Northern Avenue, near the state fairgrounds, an interesting billboard might catch your eye.  There are two billboards asking the public for help in finding Kelsie Schelling.

Kelsie Schelling's family is hoping the billboards result in information about her whereabouts.

The other billboard is off of Santa Fe Avenue heading toward Pueblo county.

"You have to look at their point of view as a family, missing someone, they want to feel like they are doing their part and doing extra," said Sgt. Eric Gonzales.

A search party on Sunday at 11 a.m. is the latest effort in trying to find her. It will start at the old Pueblo Greyhound Park off of Lake Avenue, from there searchers will canvas several different areas.

"The focus of the search is on the south side because that is where Kelsie was last seen, the southside Walmart, with the car being found by the southside hospital," said Gonzales.

 Police said they've searched here before, but the family wants to look again.

"It can't hurt, who knows they might come across maybe a personal item of hers, anything can help," said Gonzales.

Kelsie was eight-weeks pregnant at the time of her disappearance. Her boyfriend, Donthe Lucas, was questioned by police and arrested on identity theft charges, but later released.

If you have any information call 1-855-4-Kelsie.
