The search continues for missing Rutherford County mother.
Deborah Lovelace was reported missing late Monday, but investigators believe she likely went missing Friday. Based on a tip called in to an off-duty deputy, authorities say there's reason to believe foul play is involved.
Authorities found the body of her husband, Ryan Lovelace, Tuesday afternoon in woods about two miles from the couple's Sandy Mush home. He was killed in an apparent suicide by a gunshot wound to the head. Ryan Lovelace is the only person of interest in her disappearance.
The couple have one young son together. Investigators are in the process of searching vehicles and two houses the couple owned, the surrounding property, nearby abandoned wells and woods within about a two mile radius of the home.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Rutherford County Sheriff Office at 828-286-2911.
