Suspect arrested in missing woman case

Posted: Updated:

Police are looking for clues in the disappearance of a Lonoke County woman missing for two months.

One suspect in his disappearance is behind bars.

Investigators from the Lonoke County Sheriff's Department and the FBI have been searching a field outside the city of Lonoke since about 6:00 a.m. Tuesday.

Dennis Harrington, 41, of Lonoke County was arrested on kidnapping and domestic battery charges after investigators received information Saturday in reference to Rebecca Lauer's disappearance.

Lauer, 36, was reported missing July 28, but family members told investigators they had not heard from her since seven days earlier, according to Kulesa Lt. Jim Kulesa with the Lonoke County Sheriff's Department.

Kulesa said they believe the two were involved, adding Lauer was staying with Harrington.

Authorities are not releasing the exact location of the field and residential area, but say there may be additional information released soon.
Investigators emphasized they are still looking for information, so if you think you might know anything related to Lauer's disappearance, contact the Lonoke County Sheriff's department.
