The disappearance of Kelsie Schelling remains unsolved as it verges into the second week, but there are updates to report. However, the updates in this case are indicative of a potentially negative outcome, which is news that nobody ever wants to hear. On Feb. 14, 2013, it was reported that the vehicle belonging to the missing Denver woman was located in Pueblo -- though officials will not clarify on where in Pueblo the car was located, or in what condition it was upon discovery.
The discovery of the missing woman's car indicates a number of theories. For instance it reveals that she did not leave Pueblo to return to her home after visiting her boyfriend. The facts that the car was abandoned and she remains missing make it seem as though she could be more than just missing -- and it's already been speculated on the statistical likelihood of her being a murder victim. Like it was written in this Gather News post, officials have not acknowledged whether or not they suspect foul play yet after this discovery.
However, this latest bit of evidence in the search for the missing woman indicates that something horrible might have happened. While there is still a chance that the missing 21-year-old woman walked away from her abandoned car and is voluntarily missing, the statistics clearly show otherwise, and the circumstances surrounding this case simply do not compliment that pleasant idea. If you follow the past two years of missing person coverage I've written on Gather News, it's easy to see a pattern in cases where abandoned vehicles are located while the drivers remain missing.
The car is currently being searched and tested for evidence that may lead officials where they need to go in the search for Kelsie Schelling, and hopefully that evidence leads in a positive direction. However, it's not often that missing woman abandon their vehicles willingly, especially when they are newer vehicles.
