Public asked to help find missing woman

PUEBLO, Colo. - The search for Kelsie Jean Schelling continues, but her boyfriend has been arrested on suspicion of identity theft.

The arrest affidavit for Donthe Isiah Lucas, 20, has been sealed by a Pueblo judge. Lucas was arrested Friday.

Sgt. Ken Espinoza of the Pueblo Police Department's investigation unit said Monday he could not comment on Lucas' arrest because the affidavit had been sealed by the court.

Police have said that Schelling, a Denver resident who turned 22 on Monday, traveled here to visit her boyfriend. She was last seen Feb. 4 and her vehicle was found here Thursday.

Pueblo police have maintained that foul play is not suspected in Schelling's disappearance, only that they're helping Denver police locate her.

As of Monday, Pueblo police Sgt. Eric Gonzales said Schelling had not yet been located.

Anyone with information about Schelling's whereabouts is asked to call Pueblo police at 553-2502.

Lucas was being held in Pueblo County jail Monday on $25,000 bail.
