Missing pregnant woman: Baby’s father fails polygraph, ‘the prime suspect’?

Missing pregnant woman Carly Scott’s ex-boyfriend Steven Capobianco, who is reportedly the father of her five-month-old unborn baby, failed a polygraph test. In an interview in Maui, he commented openly that he is likely considered to be a prime suspect in the disappearance of pregnant Carly Scott. "I mean, it's undeniable that I'm probably the prime suspect, so they're not going to tell me any details." According to an updated Hawaii News Now report on Feb. 15, 2014, “more items, possibly belonging to Charlie Scott, were found Friday in a remote area off the Hana Highway.”

“Police found the new items but wouldn't provide details of what those items were.”

The remote area off the Hana Highway in Maui is the same area where police had found clothes of the missing pregnant woman on Thursday night.

The search for Carly Scott, whose name is also spelled as “Charlie Scott” or “Charli Scott” by Hawaii News Now, resumed on Saturday morning at 8 a.m.

Almost one week ago, on Sunday night, 27-year-old Carly Scott left her home in Makawao with her dog Nala to drive to Hana to help her ex-boyfriend Steven. In his interview, Steven Capobianco described Sunday night’s events:

"Sunday night? She picked me up from my house at 8:30, drove out to my truck that I got stuck in Keanae and she dropped me off at my truck -- it took me about 10 minutes to fix my truck, 'cause I had extra light tools with me at that time. And then we came back to Haiku. And I'm pretty sure I saw her lights in my rearview the entire time. I'm absolutely certain I saw her headlights in my rearview mirror until I got to Twin Falls and then I started speeding up 'cause I drive a little faster than she does."

According to Steven Capobianco’s account, he sped up ahead so that in case his truck would break down again, “she would pull up behind me.”

Once Steven got to the area around Twin Falls, however, he stopped seeing Carly Scott’s headlights and continued to drive home.

When asked why he didn’t pay any further attention to Carly after he had lost sight of her, Steven answered, “I actually didn't think to do that until the next morning. 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 and 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."

Even though the ex-boyfriend says that he failed a polygraph test in regard to Carly Scott’s disappearance, the fact that he is not in handcuffs makes him believe that the police were just trying a tactic on him.

On Monday morning, Carly Scott’s dog Nala was found entirely unharmed in Nahiku. On Wednesday, her 1997 Toyota 4Runner was found “completely gutted by fire” near the world-famous Jaws big-wave surfing spot in Haiku’s Peahi area.

The missing pregnant woman’s ex-boyfriend said in his interview that “Peahi is a pretty bad notorious area for people who steal cars to go and ditch them.” In regard to what he wanted viewers to know, Steven Capobianco answered, “I mean, I don't really care what they know. I just want Charli to be found."
