The family of a young mother who hasn't been heard from for weeks is flying to Colorado Springs from out of town to try and find some answers.
Jessica Hansen's family says they haven't heard from her since April 13, 2022. Corie Barns, Jessica's biological mother, told KRDO she was last seen near the area of the Peterson Space Force Base North Gate.
Hansen is the mother of a 4-year-old girl and does not have any family living in Colorado Springs. Her parents in Oregon, Denise and Greg Hansen, are helping with search efforts remotely. Her siblings and stepdad are now flying to the Springs to try to find her as well.
Barns said they've contacted hospitals, shelters, coroners, and jails, saying "we will be doing EVERYTHING we can to find her!"
Barns told KRDO Hansen has a cursive tattoo on her shoulder that reads "Gift from God," and a tattoo behind her ear of an alien.
Hansen is known to live in the Security-Widefield area and keeps in regular contact with her family.
If you know anything about where Hansen might be, contact Colorado Springs Police at 719-444-7000.
The family also started a fundraiser to help pay for travel, lodging, flyers, and a reward fund for information that leads to finding Hansen.
