Detectives with Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are in Chicago. A spokesperson with CMPD could not confirm more to NBC Charlotte's sister station WFMY when asked if Charlotte detectives have interviewed Smith.

Smith s attorney told the media his client planned on returning to Charlotte once he learned a warrant was issued.

Tanner recently moved to Charlotte from Greensboro with her 3-year-old son.

The original search for Tanner is now classified as a homicide case but Smith has not been named as a suspect. Search warrants released by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police reveal more information about what may have happened before the 31-year-old woman disappeared.

Among the information released by police last week, the warrants stated Tanner's 3-year-old son told investigators, Mommy got a spanking with a belt; Angelo kicked mommy's butt and made her cry; and Angelo is mean to mommy and hurt mommy in the face.

CMPD says Smith had outstanding warrants out of Arkansas for domestic battery.
