Details of Disappearance
Beal was last seen in Caddo Parish, Louisiana on August 6, 2018. She had been arrested in Arkansas and transported to the Caddo Correctional Center on charges of resisting an officer and illegal possession of stolen things. That night, a friend bailed her out of jail. Beal posted on her Facebook page on August 8. After that date, she was never seen or heard from again.
Another woman, Kylie Hartman
, disappeared from Shreveport, Louisiana a month later, on September 10. Both she and Beal are from Shreveport and have criminal histories. According to their mothers, both of them were involved in prostitution as well, and they ran in the same same social circles. In spite of this, police have found no evidence that the women knew each other or that their disappearances are related.
Beal's family believes she is dead. It would be uncharacteristic of her to abandon her son, or to go for this long without any contact with law enforcement. She does have active warrants out for arrest. The circumstances of her disappearance are unclear and her case remains unsolved.
