Lashaya was last seen in Aurora, Colorado in the early morning hours of July 15, 2016. She left home without her mother's permission to meet an unspecified individual and never came back. The last sighting of her was on a surveillance camera, walking near a bus stop in the 1600 block of north Peoria Street at 2:23 a.m. She has never been heard from again.

Lashaya left behind her clothes, wallet, money, phone charger and other belongings. She has no history of running away from home or getting into trouble, and she disappeared the day before a job interview.

Lashaya's family believes she was abducted by sex traffickers. There have been sightings of her reported in the Colfax Avenue area of Aurora; witnesses stated that the girl resembling Lashaya was being kept drugged and was forced into prostitution. She may have also been seen in the Kansas City, Missouri area, and in the states of Kansas, New Mexico and Arizona.

Lashaya was an honors student at George Washington High School at the time of her disappearance. She dreamed of becoming a nurse and had gotten an internship at the University of Colorado Hospital. She's considered to be in danger and her case remains unsolved.

Aurora police, FBI searching vacant home related to disappearance of Lashaya Stine four years ago​

Local and federal authorities are searching a vacant house in Aurora in connection with the disappearance of Lashaya Stine, more than four years after she went missing.

Stine was last seen on surveillance video walking near Peoria Street and Montview Boulevard at 2:15 in the morning on July 15, 2016. She was 16 years old at the time.

Officers have spent thousands of hours running down tips from across the country and they still don’t know what happened to Stine.

It sounded like she had a lot going for her. On the one hand they say she is being trafficked (they think) but on the other hand they search a vacant home four years later in the town she disappeared from? The two things do not seem to go together particularly. Any idea whose home it is? Was it her home or that of a suspected perp I wonder?

Yeah I don't know if she was trafficked if they're searching a home. There must be rumors about something that went on there.

Aurora police and FBI agents on Thursday wrapped up their search of a home where they hoped to find more clues about the disappearance of 16-year-old Lashaya Stine, and said they will start processing evidence they found.

However, police did not reveal what sort of evidence was discovered at the home at 2200 Lansing St. in Aurora, where they searched for three days. On Thursday, Aurora Fire and Rescue used jackhammers, concrete saws and other heavy equipment to assist in the search for evidence, said Matthew Longshore, an Aurora Police Department spokesman.

At about 3:30 p.m., an unmarked car backed into the house’s garage and police closed the garage doors to conceal what was happening inside. About a minute later, the car pulled away.

If anybody needs some more background on this case, I recommend listening to The Vanished podcast linked above in post #2. It's only about 30 minutes. They go into who Lashaya is as a person and why they think she may be (or may have been) caught up in sex trafficking.
