Three people have been arrested and charged with tampering with physical evidence in connection to a man who has been missing for over two weeks.

Forty six year-old Carl Glenn Anderson was last seen February 23rd at a gathering at 263 Akita Run, which is in Stone County. Teri L. Dean-Morrison told deputies she took Anderson back to his home in Highlandville, which is in Christian County.  Anderson's mother said he never returned home and she filed a missing person's report on February 25th.

Authorities need your help in locating Carl Anderson

Stone County deputies served a search warrant at Dean-Morrison's home near Hootentown on Tuesday (03-06-12) and seized several items, according to court documents.

During the execution of the warrant, "A large amount of blood was found in several locations on the ceiling in the master bedroom. The carpet flooring, exterior windows and interior door in the master bedroom had recently been replaced. The ceiling had been cleaned and ceiling texture removed in an attempt to conceal the visibility of the blood stains. Samples of the blood were taken from various areas in the master bedroom, including ceiling, ceiling fan housing and ceiling fan blades."

Investigators found a broken window frame with dried blood on it in the laundry room of the house, a broken door frame with blood on it and a piece of broken wooden trim with dried blood, according to court documents.  "The blood sample(s) were sent to the Missouri State Highway Patrol Crime Laboratory for identification purposes (DNA) and it was determined that the blood belonged to Carl Anderson."

Authorities found several receipts for the purchase of household cleaning supplies, ceiling texture, carpet and windows that were made within 24 hours of Anderson's last known contact with Dean-Morrison, Crider and Crawford.
Deputies have allegedly obtained video footage of Teri Dean-Morrison and Eugene "Gene" Crider purchasing the above mentioned items, "to conceal the blood of Carl Anderson."

When deputies went back to talk to Dean-Morrison and her roommates, Crider and Cheryl C. Crawford the trio had disappeared.  They were arrested last night near the Lake of the Ozarks, said Stone County prosecutor Matt Selby.

Christian County Sheriff Joey Kyle says Anderson has chronic health issues, "that require daily medication."

Gideon says, "We're getting mixed signals from people about what happened and would like to talk to anyone who has information about Carl Anderson's disappearance."

Anderson, who is still considered a missing person at this time, is 5-feet-10, has blue eyes and weighs 210 pounds. He was last seen wearing khaki cargo pants, a black sleeveless T-shirt and black cap. The cap has a "Hooligans" bar insignia on it.

I have known Carl for awhile now, and I almost got sick when I heard this story. Carl was a pain in the neck, who drove me nuts half of the time, and I loved him more than anything. He would give the shirt off his back, and on several occasions, even gave me the jacket off his back when he was working on my car in the dead of winter. I hope those no good bastards rot in hell for what they did to my friend and for taking him away from all of us.
