On Sept. 24, 2014, Beverly Carter, one of the top-10 real estate agents in Arkansas was hard at work in Little Rock. The 50-year-old woman, who had once sold $12 million in real estate in a single year, received a call at 2 p.m. from a man named Stephen Adams who wanted to see a property on Old River Road.

Old River Road was in a rural area just outside Little Rock. The isolated home was in the community of Scott, a farming community where the houses were sparse among the fields.

Beverly asked the man if his wife would be joining them — she was careful to make sure she was never alone when showing homes. Adams confirmed that yes, his wife would be there, and that they would be happy to meet her at 6 p.m.

As the afternoon wore on, Beverly made plans to bring dinner home to her husband after the showing. She also told her office mates where she was going and who she was meeting at the house.

Beverly arrived at the house and was dismayed to hear that Stephen’s wife would not be joining them for the showing. Still, she went on to give the man the tour of the rural home.

At 8:30 p.m., Carl Carter Jr., got a call from his father, Carl Sr., who said that he couldn’t reach Beverly. Carl Jr. almost rolled his eyes; his father was protective of his mother and prone to worry. To appease his father, he decided he would go drive by the real estate office to find his mother.

Carl Jr. pulled up to the office to find the parking lot deserted and the windows dark. Meanwhile, Carl Sr. had arrived at the house on Old River Road.

Beverly’s car was in the driveway, and the front door to the home was wide open. There was no sign of Beverly or anybody else. Carl Jr. called the police to report his mother missing.

Detectives at the scene realized that light from their flashlights revealed a clue – the dust on the home’s floor had been disturbed by people recently walking through, but the dust in the foyer of the home looked as if somebody had laid on the floor, not just walked through it.

Carl Sr. gave officers the keys to Beverly's vehicle. Her purse and credit cards were still inside, but there was also a notebook with the appointment time, an email, and a phone number written down.

Find out what police discovered as they tracked the phone number in their desperate search for the missing woman on No One Can Hear You Scream on Nov. 7 on ID at 9/8c.
