Christine Pierce, a Widefield High School graduate and well-known drummer in the Colorado Springs music scene, has been missing for six months. Pierce's disappearance was noted on Oct. 20, when she didn't show up for a band practice. Later investigations found video footage of Pierce from Oct. 16, with nothing after that date.
Colorado Springs Police are still investigating the disappearance, and a variety of Fountain Valley and Colorado Springs citizens are involved in a civilian search to locate Pierce. Brian Krewson, who is leading the civilian search, said that while interest in the case is still high, he did not have any new information on Pierce's disappearance.
"It's been about a month since the civilian side of the search exhausted every lead we have," Krewson said. "The entirety of the investigation now lies with the Colorado Springs Police Department."
Krewson also confirmed that a private investigator is still looking into the disappearance on behalf of Pierce's family. The GoFundMe page to raise money for the private investigator costs is still active, and as of press time has raised over $6,800 of its $10,000 goal.
To report any sightings or new information about Pierce, contact the Colorado Springs Police at 719-444-7000. To get involved in the civilian side of the search, contact Brian Krewson at 719-237-7614. To donate to the GoFundMe project, go to gofundme.com/f/x2qm4b-bring-christine-home.
Note: The Dec. 23, 2020, article "Widefield grad missing two months" incorrectly stated that Christine Pierce's family noted her disappearance on Oct. 16. Her disappearance was actually noticed on Oct. 20.
