It's been over a week since Kelsie Schelling was last seen, making it less likely that she'll be found alive with each day that passes. That vital window of time -- 48 to 72 hours -- is gone, and officials are hoping social networking will help in locating her, all the while claiming that they do not suspect foul play. As of Feb. 13, 2013, one of her siblings made the comment that they cannot access OnStar information to track her, because they had cancelled their service a few months ago. This is limiting the resources available to them in tracking her down. The fact that they are lost and even considering using OnStar to find the missing woman is indicative of the bad news that might lurk around the corner.
It should be noted that Kelsie was last seen in Pueblo, Colo., when she was reportedly visiting her boyfriend. However, no reports have clarified upon the type of relationship the couple have -- whether or not they have a rocky relationship or if they get along well. Would her boyfriend have a motive to harm her and hide her body, making it look as though she vanished sometime before or after their visit? Or could someone have preyed upon the young woman while she was in between visitations with the man?
Officials on this case aren't revealing much information, but what is for certain is that Kelsie Schelling remains missing with few answers. It's now verging into the second week of her disappearance and even with the use of social networking there aren't any reported sightings of her, nor are any people coming forward claiming that she is safe or that they'd seen her. This in and of itself is distressing with the woman missing for over a week.
It needs to be reported that statistically missing persons cases of this caliber do not end well, and when there is a crime involving a female victim the perp is more often than not someone romantically involved with the victim. That means if Kelsie met foul play then statistically the person who needs to be investigated would be her boyfriend or any other romantic partner she might have. Hopefully this case doesn't go in that direction, however, and Kelsie ends up being somewhere voluntarily missing.
