Beverly Carter: Suspect Arrested, But Real Estate Agent Still Missing

By    |   Monday, 29 Sep 2014 07:12 AM

A suspect has been arrested in the disappearance of Beverly Carter, an Arkansas real estate agent who went missing Thursday during a house showing.

Police declined to say how Carter and the suspect, 33-year-old Aaron M. Lewis of Jacksonville, were connected.

Carter's husband, Carl Carter, said he "knew something was wrong" when he received a number of strange texts from his wife's phone after she'd gone to show a listing, KTHV-11 reported.

"All of a sudden I received three texts in a row. One said 'Yes.' Then she sent another text that said, 'My phone's low. The battery's down, and I'll call you whenever I get signal.' And, then, straight back-to-back, I received a text that said 'Oh, I'm out drinking with some friends,'" he recited to the station. "Beverly's not a drinker. ... We just want our mom back, and my wife of 35 years. ... I need her."

Carl Carter then went to the house himself, where he found his wife's car out front, her purse inside, and the front door ajar. There was no trace of her anywhere.

On Sunday, hundreds of the family's supporters gathered to search for Beverly Carter, using a Facebook page that's amassed 18,000 followers to coordinate their efforts. They resumed their search Monday.

Many real estate agents who didn't know Carter personally turned out to help in the search. Other agents sought to raise awareness about the dangers agents face by posting tips and hosting discussions on the Facebook page.
