Donthe Lucas has been charged with the murder of his 21-year-old pregnant girlfriend who was reported missing four years ago in Colorado, People magazine reported.

Kelsie Schelling was eight weeks pregnant with Lucas' child and was last seen on Feb. 4, 2013, by relatives shortly before driving to her boyfriend's house to tell him about the baby.

Schelling never returned home but her car was found 10 days later in Pueblo, People said. Her body has not been found.

Lucas was already in prison for an armed robbery when he was charged with first degree murder on Friday, the Daily Mail reported.

The Pueblo Police Department confirmed the arrest but didn't divulge any further information.

"Because the investigation remains active, details about the investigation and what led to the arrest of Lucas cannot be released at this time," a statement said, per the Daily Mail.

Dan Corsentino, a former Pueblo County Sheriff hired as a private investigator early in the investigation by Schelling's family, told The Denver Channel Friday that there was renewed hope that her body would be found soon.

"It was difficult for law enforcement to penetrate the shroud of secrecy that existed within the Donthe Lucas family... I think it's highly possible a family member or someone close to Donthe could have turned," he said.

The case resurfaced earlier this year when self-proclaimed psychic detective, Troy Griffin, attempted to help Schelling's family locate the body in Pueblo.

"It's nothing to do with the victims, it's just how I know or how I use my directions," he told ABC News at the time.

"When I pick up the feeling I have to go and follow that ... So I have in my mind a vision of where I think her body may be that's what I'm searching for."

The search proved to be fruitless and Griffin concluded that he did not "feel Kelsie here at all."
