COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Deputies have found the vehicle of an El Paso County woman missing for several weeks.

Deputies said tips from citizens led them to the vehicle of Lori Lee Layman, who was last heard from April 30. The vehicle was found abandoned at the Pebble Creek Apartments at 2005 South El Paso Avenue in southwestern Colorado Springs.

Deputies said the vehicle appeared to have been emptied, and “evidence of a possible violent encounter was found in the form of suspected blood.”

Layman, 53, was last heard from by her father on April 30. Deputies said she was living out of her vehicle, a 2002 Kia. She has been known to live and travel between Washington, Idaho, and Colorado. Deputies said she is “known as having a very high risk lifestyle.”

Layman was last seen on April 22 at the America’s Best Value and Suites on Garden of the Gods Road. The last ping on her cell phone was May 11 in the North Nevada Avenue area.

If you saw anyone driving a gold 2002 Kia van in the area of Pebble Creek Apartments, know how it might have ended up there, or have information about Layman, you’re asked to call Detective Vidmar at 719-390-5555. No detail, however small, is insignificant.
