MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - The search is still on for Keila Freeman, who has been missing for days while her husband sits in jail for an unrelated crime.

Family and friends of Keila Ashford Freeman have not given up hope of finding her. 'Pray for Keila' ribbons have been making their way across social media.

Freeman was reported missing on Tuesday. An affidavit for her disappearance lists new evidence on what may have happened to her the morning she was last seen.

The affidavit said Randall Freeman told investigators he last saw his wife at 3:30 a.m. Tuesday. He said she pulled into the garage and sat in the car, but did not enter the home.

At 4 a.m., he said he woke up but didn't see his wife, so he called her phone and got no answer.

Then, at 5:48 a.m., Freeman called his mother-in-law. Keila's mother said she then came over to the house and saw the key still in the ignition of her daughter's car.

Kelia's purse was left on the coffee table, and her jeans were on the ground with her debit card in the pocket.

Randall Freeman has since been charged with arson.

His bond is set at $500,000. He was allegedly caught on surveillance video throwing a burning object into a home two miles from where his wife was last seen.

According to the police affidavit, a family of five escaped the fire with no injuries.

It's not Randall's first brush with the law. He has prior charges of aggravated robbery, theft up to $60,000, and driving under the influence.

While he remains in jail, detectives are still actively working, meeting with family, and anyone else who may know what led to the disappearance of Keila Freeman, a mother and wife.
