Boyfriend Arrested, Details Emerging in Case of Missing Cabot Woman

In an affidavit, two men told detectives they saw Harrington and Lauer together just days before she disappeared and that she was handcuffed and appeared to have been assaulted.
LONOKE COUNTY, AR -- Detectives with the Lonoke County Sheriff's Department (LCSO) are following all leads in the case of Rebecca Lauer, who was reported missing in late July.

Dennis Harrington, Lauer's boyfriend, has been arrested and charged with kidnapping and battery in connection to her disappearance, but there is still no sign of 36-year-old Rebecca Lauer, reportedly last seen on July 21.

According to an affidavit, two men recently told detectives they saw Harrington and Lauer together just days before she disappeared and that she was handcuffed and appeared to have been assaulted.

The men also told officers that Harrington tried to get them to have sex with Lauer, but they refused, according to the affidavit.

Harrington faced questions from detectives when Lauer was initially reported missing, but he claimed she left his house and was never seen again.

"We're hoping to develop some evidence pertaining to the case, but still, we're asking the public to help us," Lt. Jim Kulesa said.

Authorities are still searching for Rebecca Lauer, and anyone with information on her whereabouts is encouraged to contact LCSO at (501) 676-3000.

Deputies say a search warrant executed at Harrington's home on Clayhill Road this morning led investigators to potential evidence which will be sent to the Arkansas State Crime Lab for analysis and evidential value. Further information on the items collected is not yet being released.
