A photograph of missing teenager Kara Nichols has appeared on a Las Vegas escort website.

The picture of the 19-year-old aspiring model appeared on MyRedBook.com but police said the photograph was taken from another source and that Miss Nichols did not post it.

The advert promised that the girl pictured was the actual escort.

But when officers called an accompanying phone number, members of Miss Nichol’s family confirmed it was not her voice on the other end of the phone.

Police leading the search for the model said that claims she was in LA were untrue.

El Paso County Sheriff’s Detective Cliff Porter told Fox News that escorts and prostitutes often use random pictures lifted from the Internet to advertise online.

He said: ‘We have no evidence that supports the claim that she’s in Las Vegas.’

She went missing after leaving her Colorado Springs home on October 9 and was last seen with a brown-haired woman who detectives believe may have information about the young woman’s whereabouts.

11/22/12 COLORADO SPRINGS, CO — Amateur model may have fallen victim to ‘human exploitation’

An aspiring model has been missing for six weeks and was last seen in Colorado Springs area after telling her friend/roommate she was heading to Denver, CO.

Nineteen-year-old Kara Nichols wanted to be a professional model and would take amateur photos hoping they would fall into the right hands. On October 9, 2012, the young woman left her Colorado Springs home that she shared with a roommate and hasn’t been seen or heard from since. The roommate told authorities that Nichols had told her earlier that day that she was heading to Denver, but left without taking her pocket-book and money. She spent most of the day with two unknown woman who are being described as ‘brunettes,’ and then promptly disappeared.

She hasn’t signed onto any social media websites, including Facebook which, according to those who know her,  is very “uncharacteristic.

The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office calls Nichols disappearance ‘suspicious’ and believe she may have been lured under the pretense of a ‘model career’  by a human exploitation group that exploits wannabe/amateur models. They would not elaborate on what kind of exploitation but many are coming up with their own assumptions and theories, including a victim to a  human sex-trafficking ring.

EPSO say they believe the two woman know the whereabouts of Nichols and are asking the public for help in identifying the two.

Anyone with information about her whereabouts is asked to call sheriff’s detectives at (719) 520-7227. (105 East Vermijo Avenue  Colorado Springs, CO 80903) (719) 520-6000
