Pueblo investigators wrap up day 2 of renewed Kelsie Schelling search

PUEBLO, Colo. - Day two of scouring for clues in the Kelsie Schelling case in Pueblo began early on Thursday. 

Investigators were using heavy equipment, dogs and crews to wade through trees and brush in search of evidence.

Although they still aren't saying what new information led them to renew their search in Pueblo, they say it's credible enough to pull out all the stops.

The three main search locations: Lake Minnequa, the confluence of the Arkansas River and Fountain Creek

There are also poking around a spot at Dillon Drive and 40th.

"Some of these searches have been conducted in the same areas that they were in the past," said Captain Kenny Rider, Pueblo Police Department. 

All the while, Kelsie's parents watched from the sidelines. While they're happy to see the investigation gain traction, they wish it had been this way from the beginning.

"Can't go back in time, we can only look forward. Most definitely thankful for all the changes that have been made," said Laura Saxton, Kelsie’s mom. 

Investigators say they're working hard to keep this case in the eyes of the public as well.
Search efforts ended at around 4:30 p.m. They will continue their search on Friday. 

Anyone with information on the investigation is urged to contact Pueblo Crime Stoppers at 542-STOP (542-7867), and you can remain anonymous. 
The family is offering a $50,000 reward.
