Charlie Carver and Kala Brown went missing from their apartment in Anderson, South Carolina on August 31. Since then, none of their friends or family have heard from them, which makes it all the more disturbing that Carver's Facebook account continues to be updated with creepy memes, quotes, and even private messages.

The Daily Beast's Kelly Weill has written an in-depth exploration of this story—it's a must-read, but keep the lights on. Apparently, Carver, 32, and Brown, 30, disappeared without a trace, leaving their apartment unlocked. Their phones were dead. They didn't bring basic necessities like contact lenses and medication, but their dog was left alone in the apartment without food or water. Ominously, the dog's carrier was nowhere to be found.


Police are searching for the couple, but haven't found any physical clues. The only clues are coming from Carver's Facebook profile. On October 1, someone updated his timeline with life updates from the past months, claiming that he and his girlfriend were expecting a daughter on July 1, that they had bought a house on August 1, and that they were married on September 1. None of these are true.


In addition, whoever has access to Carver's account keeps posting ominous memes with messages like “Sometimes late at night I dig a hole in the backyard to keep the nosey neighbor’s guessing,” as well as news stories about the couple's disappearance. The most disturbing part is that the account has been sending twisted messages to Carver's friends. One read: "We [are] both ok. there is only one person that knows where we are … the person that means the most to me and kala she know where we are and we are coming that way for ever."


There is mounting evidence that Carver's ex-wife was involved. According to a friend, Brown had said the woman was stalking them, and had been lurking around the apartment complex. Police have not identified her as a suspect, nor have they made it clear if they have issued a search warrant to Facebook, so they can locate the device logged into Carver's account.

Head over to the Daily Beast to read Weill's full account of the story, including more of the unsettling messages on Carver's Facebook account. But lock the door first.
