Couple disappears 6 weeks ago, baffling Facebook posts add to mystery
ANDERSON, S.C. — A South Carolina couple vanished without a trace nearly six weeks ago — and now Facebook posts are adding to the mystery surrounding their disappearance.
Charlie Carver, 32, and Kala Brown, 30, were reported missing after they went several days without communicating with family and friends, according to WYFF.
Kala’s friend said several friends stopped receiving texts from her on August 31. The last photos of Charlie are from a surveillance camera that show him leaving his workplace on the same day.
After several days without talking to her son, Charlie’s mother went inside the couple’s apartment and found the dog without any food or water, according to Dateline.
Charlie, who is in the middle of a divorce, has been dating Kala for several months. The couple moved in together over the summer, according to the report.
There has been no activity on either Charlie or Kala’s phones since they went missing. However, there have been dozens of strange Facebook posts on Charlie’s Facebook page since the couple went missing.
The posts on Charlie’s Facebook post include several links to stories about the missing couple, including multiple GoFundMe fundraisers and images of the couple. The most recent post (October 2) on Charlie’s Facebook page includes a shared photo with the quote:
“What color ribbon supports the cure for people who can’t keep their nose out of other people’s business?”Several Facebook users have posted screenshots of odd conversations with the person posting on Charlie’s page.
In one screenshot shared on the City of Anderson Police Facebook page, someone apparently asked the person using Charlie’s Facebook page if they are okay. The person’s response: “yes im fine.”
There have been over 50 posts on Charlie’s page since the couple was reported missing, including a post that declared Charlie married Kala on September 1.
The family insists Charlie’s Facebook account has been hacked and the confusing posts are falsely making people believe the couple has been found.
Detectives told Dateline they are investigating but have few leads at this point. Foul play has not been ruled out, according to the report.
Anyone with information about the couple is asked to call police in Anderson at 864-260-4444.
