There are reports circulating lately that are trying to connect three Colorado disappearances as some sort of compound event. Their only line of comparison is the website Model Mayhem, which is disturbing seeing as though it's a prominent site mentioned in numerous missing persons cases. On Feb. 25, 2013 KRDO News shared the stories of three currently high profile cases, and some bloggers have tried to run with the information in hopes of inflaming a potential connection, although some of the information being spread isn't 100% accurate. Nonetheless, it's important to look at every possible theory when it comes to three missing women in one specific region.
First of all there are still no signs of missing Denver woman Kelsie Schelling -- not since her car was located in Pueblo. She is among the young women being connected in this string of disappearances simply because she has a modeling/entertainment profile online. Back on Feb. 18th I shared a post here on Examiner that detailed the missing woman's case and her Explore Talent profile, which is bare and looks like it's never been used. The Examiner article pointed out the Kara Nichols disappearance as well, and it's important for this information to be pointed out. So it's good that other media sources are following behind me in this analysis.
Another young woman by the name of Raven Cassidy Furlong, like Kara Nichols, has a Model Mayhem profile and may have been "lured away," her mom says. Model Mayhem has been a website featured in many missing cases such as the disappearance of Jaren Lockhart and Christiana Fesmire. It's a very likely scenario that Kara Nichols and Raven Cassidy Furlong might be connected. Both young ladies could have fallen in with the wrong crowds under the guise of modeling gigs.
However, the disappearance of Kelsie Schelling differs from the other two in that the young woman doesn't use Model Mayhem. In fact, her only modeling profile is on the entertainment site Explore Talent. She also apparently never finished filling out her profile, as mentioned in the first mentioning of it here on Examiner. So it's unlikely that she ever really used the profile. Maybe she created it out of curiosity once out of wanting to experiment with modeling, but then never got around to finishing the profile. One thing is for certain, though, and that's that Kelsie Schelling didn't appear to have the "modeling" presence that Kara Nichols and Raven Cassidy Furlong have online.
Also, there are other details in the Kelsie Schelling case that differ from those of the other missing girls. A coworker and friend of the missing woman claims that she was pregnant at the time of her disappearance, and was having troubles with her boyfriend Donthe. More recent reports indicate that Donthe has been arrested on "identity theft" charges, but officials refuse to clarify on those charges. Whose identity is he accused of stealing, and what does he know about his girlfriend's disappearance?
