Arrest Warrant Issued for Aaron Lewis Wanted in the Kidnapping/Abduction of Missing Beverly Carter in Scott, AR
An arrest warrant has been issued for 33 year old Aaron Lewis in the disappearance of missing 49 year old Beverly Scott. Aaron Lewis is believed to have kidnapped Beverly Scott Thursday night, 9/25/14, as Carter was showing a home in Scott, Arkansas. Pulaski County authorities say Lewis was a person of interest before he was involved in a car accident Sunday afternoon. Police deputies took a picture of Lewis’s injuries; however, at that point there was no arrest warrant. Lewis was taken to Baptist Health in Little Rock to get a CT scan, but because of HIPAA privacy rules, and the fact he was not under arrest yet, police deputies couldn’t go back to the hospital with him. Lewis managed to slip out of the hospital and evade police.
Aaron Lewis is a white male, 5 feet 11 inches and approximately 156 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes. Lewis had a criminal history in Arkansas, Kansas City, and Utah. Aaron Lewis is presently out on parole.

UPDATE I: Person of Interest now a suspect in the disappearance of Beverly Carter … Lewis has a criminal past
Lewis’ vehicle apparently collided with a concrete barrier on the north side of Jacksonville Cato Road; it came to a rest on top of a concrete culvert, according to the crash report. The reporting officer said Lewis indicated that another vehicle had ran him off the roadway, but witnesses said that Lewis was speeding and began to fishtail prior to the crash.
He was taken to Baptist Hospital ER for shoulder and neck injuries, and written a citation for careless driving and no seat belt. A photo taken immediately after the accident also showed injuries on his face including a bloodied nose, and what appears to be a large gash on his forehead.
The crash happened around 9:55 Sunday morning. A truck description was not provided.
