Police searching for missing Maumelle man

MAUMELLE, Ark. (KTHV) – Police announced Wednesday they’re searching for a Maumelle man they say disappeared Monday, March 7. 

Maumelle police are asking for the public’s assistance in locating 38-year-old Berry “Beau” Bishop.  They have reason to believe he left of his own accord, and no reason to believe there are criminal issues with this case.

Originally, three firearms were believed to have been missing as well. According to police, the weapons have been accounted for. They say they have no reason to believe Bishop is armed.

Capt. Jim Hansard said police are very concerned. Bishop is said to be an active member at New Life Church in Maumelle and is married with two children. 

Police said he may be in a black 2014 Hyundai Elantra sport, with Arkansas tags 924-TYT.

If you have any information on Bishop’s whereabouts, you’re asked to call police at (501) 851-1337.

Donations needed for The CALL in White County


MAUMELLE, Ark. (KTHV) -- Thanksgiving and Christmas are long gone, but the holiday hangover has left some non-profits hurting.

Foster centers that supply families with much-needed clothes and other needs are far understocked, putting the families they serve in jeopardy.

When families take on foster kids they need to provide for them like any other kid, giving them clothes, a bed and food. But now the places those families turn to are turning to you at home for help.

“The DHS workers are just desperately trying to place more kids,” said foster mother Jane Darnell.

We all have a calling. For Darnell that calling came in 2012 when she took in a little foster girl.

Maumelle police chief offers free rides


MAUMELLE, Ark. (KTHV) - This Christmas Eve, a Maumelle police chief dedicated himself to keeping his community safe.

We've heard of businesses and even law enforcement offering free rides to people who may have had too much to drink during the holidays, but we've never heard of a police chief offering a free ride. That is, until now.

"If you'll give us a call, I'll come get you."

"About the only thing worse than getting a DWI is hurting someone by getting into a car wreck after you've been drinking."

To spread the message, Chief Williams took to Facebook, posting he would pick up anyone finding themselves without a DD in Maumelle.

CONWAY—The University of Central Arkansas Foundation, Inc. has received $215,500 to support the Nursing Simulation Lab in the Department of Nursing.

“Nursing has afforded me the opportunity to care for a lot of individuals,” said Elizabeth A. Blankenship, CEO of Southridge Village Nursing and Rehabilitation. “With our ability to gift to the nursing program, the students will have some of the best technology available to them, and I believe it will assist in their training and education.”

Blankenship, along with her daughters and fellow UCA alumnae, Ashley M. Blankenship and Gretchen E. Humphreys, made the gift in a presentation that included UCA faculty, staff and students.

UCA President Tom Courtway expressed gratitude to the Blankenship family, “Thank you very much for your generosity. Thank you, more than anything else, for believing in UCA and believing in this college and this department.”
