A North Carolina woman is missing and her family is searching for answers. Meanwhile, her husband has allegedly been uncooperative with the investigation of his wife’s disappearance and is accused of stealing a car and fleeing authorities.

39-year-old Kiera Wiggins was reported missing on June 18. According to her mother, Lora Beamon, the last time she spoke to her daughter was on Mother’s Day. She told the station she became worried when no one was able to reach Wiggins. Wiggins is known as “Booboo” to her loved ones.

“Booboo misses a call from somebody, she’s gonna call [back]. There’s something not right about this picture. Something is not going right,” Beamon told the station.

According to her family, Wiggins’ husband, Carl Wiggins, has refused to answer any questions about her disappearance.

“I said, ‘Where’s my sister?'” Wiggins’s older sister Judy Murray said. “He said, he tells me, ‘She’s with some friend.’ I said, ‘Well, tell me the friend so I can contact them to get my sister.’ And then he just blew up.”
