Although Portwood and Wayt currently live in Indiana, they had been in North Carolina to attend her brother's wedding. However, the pair reportedly got into an argument that resulted in Wayt taking his keys and driving away from the cabin where they had been staying.

"He might not even know he's a missing person at this point," a source explained to a news outlet. "He hasn't had his phone and only took his wallet and the car."

As OK! previously reported, Portwood claimed she was so concerned because they hadn't had a "big blowout fight" or anything prior to his disappearance. She added that they did have an "emotional" conversation about "his parents being Vietnamese," but did not clarify the details of their talk.

"This is a huge deal, his parents, everybody is very worried. I am worried," she said in the YouTube video. "He is a missing person right now."
