Authorities have arrested a man wanted in connection with an Arkansas real estate agent who has been missing since last week.

The Pulaski County Sheriff's Office says Little Rock police arrested 33-year-old Arron Michael Lewis on Monday morning. Lewis was named in an arrest warrant Sunday on suspicion of kidnapping 49-year-old Beverly Carter.

Authorities say Carter had planned to show a house in Scott on Thursday night but never returned from the appointment. She was still missing Monday morning.

No details were immediately released about Lewis' arrest.

Pulaski County Lt. Carl Minden says authorities are not releasing details on how investigators identified Lewis as a suspect. He says Lewis is on parole for previous convictions in northwest Arkansas.

A pervious version of this story spelled the suspect's first name as Aaron.  Per the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office, they have determined the correct spelling to be Arron.
