Last week, Loudoun County sheriff's deputies searched the home of the last person believed to have seen a missing pregnant woman from Ashburn, Va.

According to a search warrant affidavit, the last person to see 21-year-old Bethany Anne Decker on Jan. 29 may not have been her husband, Emile Decker. It may have been the woman's boyfriend, Ronald Roldan, who lives at his mother's home in Centreville and who is the father of Bethany Decker's unborn child, according to court documents.

Bethany Decker is believed to be about five months pregnant. She also has a 17-month-old child with her husband, a U.S. Army private who deployed to Afghanistan on Feb. 2.

Deputies searched the Centreville home for clues to help them find Bethany Decker, NBC Washington's John Schriffen reported. According to the affidavit, the boyfriend lived in Bethany Decker's Ashburn apartment until February while her husband was away for military training.

Investigators have talked to both the husband and the boyfriend, according to the sheriff's office. They've also checked her Facebook account for clues.

When Bethany Decker wasn't at her husband's Feb. 2 deployment sendoff, her family became concerned. Another red flag was the fact that her car was left at her home on Orchard Grass Terrace. And the family doesn't believe Bethany Decker would willingly be separated from her son for so long.

After failing to contact her for weeks, Bethany Decker's family reported her missing on Feb. 19.

Investigators are looking in to all possibilities, including foul play, though there is no evidence of any.

Last week, Bethany Decker's family said the woman and her husband accompanied the family on a trip to Hawaii and there was no sign of marital problems.

Bethany Decker is a senior at George Mason University. She's white,  4-feet-11-inches tall and about 130 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information about this case should call 703-777-0475.
