The body of Cassie Carli, 37, was found Saturday night in a shallow grave in a barn in Alabama – almost a week after she vanished in Navarre, Florida, Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office said.

The announcement came the day after police revealed they had arrested her ex-boyfriend Marcus Spanevelo in Lebanon, Tennessee.

It is unclear where exactly in Alabama Cassie’s body was found.

However, the Santa Rosa County Sheriff said the St. Clair County Sherrif’s Office and the Springville Police Department assisted in the search.

Cassie was last seen in the parking lot in Navarre, Florida, where she was supposed to pick up her daughter Saylor from her ex-boyfriend Marcus Spanevelo during a custody exchange, WFLA reported.

A message was sent from Cassie’s phone to her father saying that she was having car trouble after dropping her daughter off at a custody exchange with the girl’s dad.

But when she did not return home last Sunday, panicked loved ones raised the alarm and police launched an urgent hunt on Monday.

Cops say Cassie had been due to meet her ex at Navarre Beach on Sunday. Her car was found close by on Tuesday morning.

Her ex-boyfriend Spanevelo was arrested several days later on charges of tampering with evidence.

He was arrested in Lebanon, Tennessee, and also faces charges of destruction of evidence and giving false information.

It is not currently known if he will face further charges.

An autopsy is scheduled to take place Monday in Alabama where Cassie’s cause of death is expected to be determined.

Cassie’s family told WFLA that she was concerned about Spanevelo as they were working through custody problems.

“Cassie’s been telling me for the last two years that (Marcus) has been threatening her,” Cassie’s brother Anthony Carli told WFLA.

“She’s always said, if anything happens to me, it’s him.”

Sharing pictures of Cassie police said: “The Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office is currently working a missing/endangered persons investigation.

“We are currently searching for Cassie Catherine Carli. She is 37 years of age. She was last seen on Navarre Beach on Sunday evening.”

“Her car has been recovered but she is still missing. Anyone with information is asked to contact our Major Crimes Unit at 850-983-1190.

Cops confirmed on Wednesday that Cassie’s four-year-old daughter is safe, adding: “We continue to search for Cassie Carli.”

Cassie’s friend Sam Porter told ABC4 Carli’s dad was sent a message from his daughter’s phone to say she was having car trouble.

The note is also said to have referenced that her phone battery was running low. She has not been heard from since.

A vigil was held for Cassie where friends prayed for her safe return.

“There are a lot of prayers going up for Cassie right now.”
