OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - For the first time we have a picture of the Kansas man wanted on allegations of kidnapping an Omaha woman.

Aldrick Scott, 47, is retired military. He served a total of 20 years with both the Marine Corps and U.S. Army.

The Shawnee County Sheriff in Kansas released new photos Monday of Scott. He lives in Topeka,150 miles south of Omaha.

Investigators are trying to find him as well the missing 43-year-old Cari Allen.

Sources tell 6 News they believe Scott had plans to leave the country, possibly to Mexico.

As of Monday evening, his whereabouts are unknown.

Sunday marked eight days since she was last seen near her west Omaha home.

This past week Douglas County Sheriff deputies, along with the state patrol have been following tips looking for any sign of the 43-year-old.

The week started with investigators serving a search warrant at the Topeka, Kansas home of Aldrich Scott after receiving a 911 call alleging that he had killed his girlfriend.

Investigators removed some items but did not find Scott at his home or Cari Allen.

Wednesday, Douglas County Sheriff investigators filed a warrant for Aldrick Scott’s arrest.

Details explaining why have been sealed by a judge, but the complaint alleges he kidnapped Cari Allen.

The search will likely continue this week.

Search teams have scoured a number of places in the last few days including Stolley Prairie near 168th and blonde, just a few blocks from Allen’s home.

The underpass near 169th and West Dodge Road was also looked at.

Deputies have also been searching at the landfill in Bennington.

Wednesday, the crime lab towed Cari Allen’s car out of her garage. It’s now a piece of evidence.

Friends and colleagues are having a hard time processing this mystery.

“Our people are feeling a real loss and bewilderment by not knowing where she is, why and what happened and when will any closure come,” said Steve Hodapp, the CEO of VODEC.

Cari Allen spent 11 years working for VODEC, a nonprofit helping adults with developmental disabilities.

She works as a shared-living provider, meaning she opened up her home to those who needed it.
