Dogs search Pueblo field in Kelsie Schelling disappearance case

Search continues for clues in...

PUEBLO, Colo. - The Pueblo Police Department returned to a field on the city's southwest side for the second time this week as part of the investigation into the disappearance of Kelsie Schelling. 

The field is located near the intersection of Savannah Drive and La Randa Drive. 

On Monday, investigators used heavy machinery to dig.  On Wednesday, dogs were brought in to sniff around. Nothing was found during either search, police said.

Schelling disappeared in 2013 after driving from Denver to Pueblo to tell her boyfriend that she was pregnant.

The police department says Schelling's boyfriend, Donthe Lucas, is a person of interest in her disappearance.

The field that investigators have been focusing on this week is within a mile of a home where Lucas once lived.

In April, police searched Lucas's former home in the 5100 block of Manor Ridge Road. The search included extensive digging in the backyard of the home. Police said that evidence in the case was found during that search, but did not say what that evidence was.
