Colorado Springs, CO (January 9, 2013) – Kara Nichols, 19, left her home in Colorado Springs bound for Denver on October 9, 2012 only to not be seen again by her family and friends. The last call on her cell phone was at 11:45p.m. on October 9th. The family of Nichols is hoping someone in the public knows something about her disappearance and the whereabouts of their daughter.
Kara's parents wrote an open letter to their daughter in hopes that she will somehow be able to read it:
If you're out there somewhere, we want you to know that we love you and miss you very much. It’s so awful having you missing and not knowing if you’re suffering or even alive. No matter where you are or what has happened to you, we will never stop looking for you and praying that you come back to us safely. Our deepest wish is to find out if you're okay. Whatever has happened, there is a way out and a way forward. You can rebuild your life and start anew. You are a beautiful person with so much talent and potential. The person you are, whom your family knows and loves, is so valuable and deserves the best for her life's journey. The grief we all feel is immeasurable, and the hope and prayers for your safety are all we think about. Please, even if you can’t contact us, if someone you know can tell us you’re all right, we would be so grateful.
Love, Mom and Dad
