Isabella Telles, the owner of Cake Fashion by Bella Marie bakery in Colorado Springs, says she’s been affected by the disappearance 11-year-old Colorado boy, Gannon Stauch, much like the rest of her community.
“I just feel very invested in him and doing whatever we can to support Gannon and his family,” Telles told FOX 31.
Telles plans to donate 100% of her bakery’s profit from February 12 to 14 to help the family financially, as the desperate search for the boy nears its third week.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Gannon’s stepmother, Tecia Stauch, previously told police that she last saw the boy on January 27, between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m., as he allegedly left their home near Colorado Springs on foot to visit a friend in their Lorchan Ranch neighborhood.
Stauch claimed the boy never returned home. None of Gannon’s friends remember seeing him that day, according to reports, and police confirmed he did not attend school on January 27.
On Wednesday, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office stated that they cannot confirm Gannon was last seen leaving his home. The information was provided solely by Tecia Stauch.
Telles said she’s never met Gannon or his family, but she has a young child herself and wanted to make sure the family knows they have supporters.
“I just want them to know that we’re here for them — that they do have people that support them 100%. If that just means a few days of profits, that’s fine. That’s not a big deal compared to what they are going through.”
Gannon is described as a white male who stands 4-feet-9-inches tall and weighs around 90 pounds. He has brown eyes and brown hair. He was last seen wearing a blue hooded jacket, jeans, and athletic shoes, according to his stepmother.
Anyone with any information on Gannon’s whereabouts is urged to contact the El Paso SO’s “Investigations Tip Line” at 719-520-6666. or the El Paso County SO 719-390-5555.
