LAS VEGAS — The search for a missing teenager from Colorado Springs has led investigators to Las Vegas.

Authorities say pictures of 19-year-old Kara Nichols have surfaced on an escort service website based in Las Vegas.

However, police say they have followed up numerous similar tips that have not helped them find the teen.

They say there is no proof that she is in Las Vegas.

Nichols was last seen October 9 when she reportedly told her roommate she was going to Denver for a modeling job.

Her parents along with the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office have made public pleas for information that will help them find her.
