Realtor Beverly Carter, 51, shows a house and disappears

Pulaski County deputies are searching Friday for a real estate agent who disappeared after going to show a house.

Beverly Carter, 51 (we've verified her DOB), of Scott Arkansas, was last heard from when she called her husband, Carl Carter, about 5:30 p.m. Thursday to say she was going to show a home at 14202 Old River Drive in Scott.  Beverly is a real estatet for Crye Leike Realtors, 
Carl Carter told deputies that he became worried about 9 p.m. when he hadn’t heard from his wife, so he went to the address to check on her, the report states. There, he found her brown Cadillac sport utility vehicle parked in the driveway with her purse inside it and saw the door to the home standing open, deputies said. Carl Carter searched for his wife inside the house but didn’t find her. Nothing seemed to be missing from her purse, but deputies couldn't find the home's door lock, according to the report. [link]
Beverly Carter was last seen wearing a black sleeveless shirt and red shorts.

Anyone with information on her whereabouts is 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.

A Facebook post reads:
The following quotes come from a close friend/coworker of the missing woman:
"I was texting with her at 7:30 last night, but police don't know if it was actually her."
"A source saw a truck at the house Beverly was showing. It was an older model (kind of beat up) Slate Gray extended-cab pickup truck with 2 doors!"
"They have evidence that her phone was used on Baucum Road [rural east NLR], then Roosevelt Road."  
An address and phone number that is associated with Carl Carter, Beverly's husband
Carl Carter said he received texts around 1 AM; but they did not sound like they came from her. "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. "Beverly's not a drinker.  A witness said he saw a tall, skinny white man in the slate gray truck, parked in the driveway of the home Beverly was supposed to be showing.
