Tip Prompts Family to Search for Woman, Missing Six Years

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Acting on a tip, the family of Bekime Elshani is asking for the public's help in a search for clues. 

Bekime "Becky" Elshani, went missing in March of 2008, and hasn't been seen since.  Investigators had little clues from the beginning: Becky's then-boyfriend, Daniel Dereere killed himself as officers were looking for her at the couple's Colorado Springs apartment. Police detectives said pings from Dereere's cell phone registered in Teller County the day Becky went missing.  

The Elshani family is organizing a search Sunday, August 10, around the Grand Lake area. 

They plan to drive from Colorado Springs to Grand Lake, leaving with a search team from the Shell Gas Station at I-25 and Woodmen at 10:00 a.m, Sunday. 

If you would like additional information to help with the search, contact 719-432-6961.
