The Cape Coral Police Department said that Schmalbach has been missing since Wednesday, July 19. The police now have a person of interest in Schmalbach’s disappearance, but they have not identified who it is.

Schmalbach’s live-in boyfriend, Christopher Davis, was just arrested for unrelated charges. Cape Coral Police learned he had two out-of-state warrants for parole violations.

WINK News spoke with Emily Scaletta, Schmalbach’s half-sister, “Truthfully, we we have no idea. We haven’t known him too long. We don’t want to speculate anything. We are aware that he has been arrested on other charges, but nothing that has been related to Barry.”

The family will continue their efforts to find him starting at Jaycee Park and will work their way downtown to pass out flyers.
