Seemingly innocent posts on the Facebook page of South Carolina man Charlie Carver are in fact deeply disturbing, friends and family say. Carver and girlfriend Kala Brown disappeared on Aug. 31, and loved ones say the posts that have appeared on the account this month were clearly written by somebody else, the Daily Beast reports. A post a week after the disappearance said they were "fine," and Carver's history was retroactively edited Oct. 1 to include life events that never happened, including an announcement of Brown's pregnancy, their marriage, and the purchase of a house.

When the couple disappeared, they left behind medication and even their Pomeranian dog, NBC News reports. Carver, who started dating Brown earlier this year, was in the middle of divorcing another woman. Brown's best friend tells the Daily Beast that her friend had complained about Carver's estranged wife stalking her and doing "all kinds of really crazy scary stuff." Police say they're investigating the disappearance, but they have not identified any suspects or subpoenaed Facebook to discover the source of the Carver posts—which, chillingly, have included posters issued in the search for the missing couple. (A creepy video turned out to be a dead end in the search for a missing Wisconsin teen.)
