A missing pregnant woman who vanished Sunday night on the Hawaiian island of Maui continues to baffle investigators, after her 1997 Toyota 4Runner SUV was found Wednesday badly burned and flipped on its side near a popular surfing spot.
Clothing items belonging to Carly “Charli” Scott, who was five and a half months pregnant when she disappeared, were found Thursday along Hawaii’s Hana Highway, near where she was last seen when she apparently vanished from the rear-view mirror of her ex-boyfriend.
A pitbull mix dog named Nala that belonged to the missing pregnant woman was discovered apparently unhurt about 20 miles from where Steven Capobianco says he saw her last. Carly Scott has bright red hair, stands about 5’10” and weighs approximately 160 pounds.
Capobianco, who believes he is the father of the unborn child carried by the missing pregnant woman, says that he realizes that he is the prime suspect in her disappearance.
“It’s undeniable,” said Capobianco. “So they’re not going to tell me details.” But police did tell him that he failed a polygraph test given when they took him in for questioning.
Investigators have not named any suspect in the mystery surrounding the missing woman.
Capobianco flatly denied harming his ex-girlfriend in any way. He said that he called her Sunday to give him a ride so he could fix his truck. Afterward, she was driving behind him on the Hana Highway when he noticed that she was no longer visible. But he says he thought nothing of it at the time.
“I sent her a text that said, ‘thank you,’ but I figured she was working, that’s why she didn’t get back to me right away,” the ex-boyfriend of the pregnant woman said. “It wasn’t until the cops showed up at my house at 5:30 in the morning the next day that I realized something was wrong.”
He said that he remained on friendly terms with Carly Scott after their relationship ended, and they “hooked up” occasionally. While he believes her baby is his, he said he cannot be certain.
