A recent tip about the whereabouts of a missing Colorado Springs teenager did not pan out. The Kara Nichols case remains active.

On March 8, a business owner reported possibly seeing Nichols with an unknown man in the area of Fillmore St. in Colorado Springs. Investigators from the El Paso County Sheriff's Office immediately searched the area, conducted interviews and collected and reviewed surveillance footage from the area.

Investigators were able to identify the unknown man through those efforts. They spoke to the man, who now lives in Wellington, and found out that the woman he was seen with on Fillmore St. is his girlfriend, not Nichols. 

The investigation into Nichols' disappearance and current whereabouts is still active. If you have any information that could help the case, call (719) 390-5555 or email information to findkaranichols@gmail.com.
