LITTLETON, Colo. -- Multiple well-placed sources tell Denver7 Investigates Littleton police found spatter that may be blood on a headboard during the search for missing woman Charlene Voight. Investigators are awaiting test results on the suspected blood.

Sources tell Denver7 Chief Investigative reporter Tony Kovaleski officers found a mattress that was missing from an apartment they searched. They also said a piece of carpeting appeared to have been removed and replaced with a piece that did not match and was not sewn in place.

Voight’s family reported her missing on July 8, saying they had not heard from her since June 29. Her family told Denver7 she had recently moved to Colorado to be with her boyfriend, Jeffrey Scott Beier.

On July 12, police arrested Beier on charges of an unrelated sexual assault on another woman. Police said they learned of the sexual assault allegation while investigating Voight’s disappearance.
