The last call on her cell phone was at 11:45p.m. on October 9, 2012. Despite ongoing flyer distribution, a national media campaign, in addition to the investigation by law enforcement, Kara's family is still left not knowing where their daughter is or if she is alive.
“It’s been one year since our beloved daughter Kara Nichols went missing from her residence in
Colorado Springs, and our family is bracing for another holiday season without her.” Kara's parents, Paul and Julia said in a statement.
They added that they are no closer to knowing what happened to their daughter than they were when they first realized she was missing.
“It’s been a long year of heartache, frustration and deep fear for Kara’s safety,” they said. “She was only 19 years old; now she would be 20.”
The Nichols have vowed to never give up hope of finding Kara. They feel that someone knows something about what happened and are urging that person to leave a tip with the El Paso Co. Colorado Sheriff’s Department or their local law enforcement office.
“Our family has a deep wound that can’t be healed, and our hope is that no one may have to go through this pain we have had to for the past year,” Kara's parents said.
