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.
The Pulaski County District Court has issued a warrant for the arrest of Aaron Lewis. Lewis is wanted on one count of kidnapping in relation to the disappearance of realtor Beverly Carter.
According to the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office, Lewis, 33, may have kidnapped Beverly Carter, the realtor who disappeared Thursday evening after meeting a potential client at a home in Scott. Police say as of Sunday evening, Carter has still not been found.
Pulaski County authorities say Lewis was a person of interest before he was involved in a Sunday afternoon car accident. Following the accident, deputies took a picture of Lewis’s facial injuries. Because of his injuries, he was taken to Baptist Health in Little Rock before the arrest warrant was issued by a judge.
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.
Minden confirmed that Lewis is on active parole, and has been out since August 2013. Minden added that he does have a criminal history in Arkansas from the northwest part of the state. He has been charged with the following crimes in the past:
- Felony Theft of Property (Washington County Sheriff’s Office),
- Obstruction of Government Operations (Benton County Sheriff’s Office),
- Failure to Appear misdemeanor and felony (BCSO),
- Accomplice to Theft of Property (BCSO),
- Theft of Property misdemeanor and felony (BCSO),
- Unlawful Removal of Theft Device (BCSO),
- Other out of state charges from the Kansas City Police Department and the Utah Department of Corrections.

Beverly Carter – Missing
Police are still searching for clues in the disappearance of a central Arkansas real estate agent.
The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office is searching for 49-year-old Beverly Carter. She was reported missing by her husband September 25 after she was supposed to meet an unknown person at a home on Old River Road in Scott to show a house around 5:30 p.m.
After three and half hours of no contact, her husband went to the home on Old River Road and found his wife’s car with her purse and wallet inside, but she was nowhere to be found, and investigators have found no trace of a crime.
“Her car was there, and the house was wide open, and I knew that something was wrong,” her husband, Carl Carter, described of the scene when he went to look for her.
People living near the home are shocked. Some told us they saw Beverly’s car and another vehicle in the driveway last night but thought nothing of it because the home is for sale.
“A tall skinny white man got out of the truck to pull up the one he was showing the house to,” a neighbor said.
Carter said he and Beverly have been married for 35 years and he wants her back home with the family.
Detectives are looking at this as a missing persons case.
While one of the detectives said he believes Beverly was taken from the home, no description on the possible suspect or a vehicle have been released.
Police are in their second day of looking for clues in the disappearance of a central Arkansas real estate agent. More than 250 volunteers were out helping authorities search for clues Saturday.
Saturday’s volunteers were divided into two groups — one group searched Old River Road, where Carter’s car was found, and the other group was sent to I-30 and Highway 161. Some searched by foot, others by ATV. Deputies received dozens of requests from search crews to check on items that could possibly lead to clues, but so far, no evidence has turned up.
“It’s a vast amount of acreage,” said Lt. Carl Minden. “There’s a lot of farm land, swamp. There’s a lot of waterways.”
If anyone has any information on her whereabouts are urged to call the Pulaski County sheriff’s office’s 24-hour communications number, (501) 340-6963; its criminal investigations division, (501) 340-6940; or the central Arkansas CrimeStoppers tip line, (501) 340-8477.

Missing NDSU student – Thomas Gregory Bearson
Bearson, an 18-year-old NDSU freshman, last known contact was at 3:40 a.m. Saturday morning, according to police. His cellphone is currently not working.
Lt. Joel Vettel from the Fargo Police Department says police were contacted when Bearson did not show up for a scheduled visit back home in Sartell. University police searched for Bearson in his dormitory room but did not locate him.
Vettel said police canvassed the 800 block area of 14th Street North, the last known place where Bearson was seen.
Bearson was last seen wearing a baseball hat and a blue Sartell track and field shirt along with Khaki pants. Tom is 6 feet 1 inch tall and weighs approximately 155 pounds. He has blonde hair and blue eyes.
A fellow student told The Forum earlier Monday he saw Bearson shortly before 4 a.m. Saturday, hours after the missing student tweeted that he was lost and needed a ride.
The last tweet from Bearson’s Twitter account was sent at 1:23 a.m. Saturday and reads, “dude it’s jake come pick us up.” It also reads, “We are so lost and we are going to die. Just get somebody.”
In an interview Monday, the recipient of the tweet, Cody Mead, also an NDSU student, said Bearson and “Jake” found a ride to Mead’s house in north Fargo after that tweet.
“Jake” refers to Mead’s roommate, Jake Wenzel, who went to high school with Bearson, Mead said. Mead met Bearson for the first time that night.
Early on Sept. 12, Bearson was arrested for driving under the influence and minor in possession. An officer pulled him over for driving west in an eastbound lane a few blocks from Reed Hall, according to court papers.
A breath test found that Bearson’s blood-alcohol level was 0.18 percent. He failed one field sobriety test, and because of his poor balance at the time, two others were not given for safety reasons, court papers said.
UPDATE II: On Monday, police expanded the search to the neighborhood where he was seen leaving a party around 3 a.m. Saturday.
Bearson tweeted he was lost and needed a ride.
NDSU says his cell phone appears to not be working anymore.
Fargo police, using canines, are searching the neighborhoods around campus. Firefighters will also search the Red River for any signs of the nursing student.

Three Afghan National Army Soldiers Missing From Cape Cod Base … Last Seen at the Cape Cod Mall in Hyannis, MA (Maj. Jan Mohammad Arash, Cpt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada & Cpt. Noorullah Aminyar) (Update: Detained at US-Canada Border)
ABC News is reporting that 3 Afghanistan National Army soldiers are missing from their Cape Cod base in Massachusetts. The three soldiers arrived in the United States on September 11 for a training mission, Exercise Regional Cooperation. According to reports, they have gone missing after a trip to a shopping mall in Hyannis, MA. This is the second time in a week that Afghan security trainees in the United States have disappeared. The three men currently missing in Massachusetts are Afghanistan National Army Soldiers Maj. Jan Mohammad Arash, Cpt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada, and Cpt. Noorullah Aminyar.
Police and military officials were searching Sunday for three soldiers from the Afghanistan National Army who went missing during a training exercise at a Cape Cod military base.
The Afghan soldiers had been participating in a U.S. Central Command Regional Cooperation training exercise at Joint Base Cape Cod, U.S. military officials said. They arrived at Camp Edwards on Sept. 11 and were last seen at the Cape Cod Mall in Hyannis.
The soldiers were reporting missing by base security personnel on Saturday night. They were identified as Major Jan Mohammad Arash, Captain Mohammad Nasir Askarzada and Captain Noorullah Aminyar.
Base and exercise officials were working with local and state authorities to locate them. There is no indication the soldiers pose any threat to the public, military officials said.
The Massachusetts National Guard said that the three soldiers do not appear to pose any threat to the public. Really? What are they going to say? We have let three Afghan high ranking soldiers out of our sight and are wondering around America? The three men were senior military officers from Afghanistan and were cleared by the US State Department to participate in the exercise. Oh that just makes me oh so confident. How is it that we cannot keep tabs on anyone who comes to this country? Do you know how far it is from Quantico, VA to Buffalo, NY?
This is not the first reported case of Afghan nationals who have gone missing while undergoing a training program in the US. Two Afghan policemen who were in taking part in an intensive DEA training program in Quantico, Va., went missing while on a sightseeing trip last Thursday. They were found in Buffalo, NY, on Friday.
Three Afghan National Army officers who went missing during a training exercise at a Cape Cod military base were detained Monday at the U.S.-Canadian border, Massachusetts law enforcement officials said.
Massachusetts state police were notified that the three were being questioned by federal authorities at Rainbow Bridge, which connects Niagara Falls, N.Y. and Niagara Falls, Ont., said spokesman David Procopio, who did not have further details.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials in Niagara Falls said they didn’t have the men in custody. Messages left for Canada Border Services Agency weren’t immediately returned.
