Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Elizabeth and John Calvert were last around 5:30 p.m., leaving a community meeting near the Harbour Town Basin Resort on Hilton Head Island. The couple, who live on a nearby yacht, failed to appear for work the next day.
Both the couples' cell phones have been turned off since Monday night, the night they went missing -- which friends say is very unusual. Officers found the couple's silver 2006 Mercedes Benz E320, GA Tech license plate "GT821B," parked at a hotel in Palmetto Dunes, a gated community about six miles from where the Calverts lived on their yacht.
Detectives say the car has revealed no clues, and neither have dogs and divers who have searched around the harbor. The couple has a small airplane that has been accounted for at the island's airport.
Elizabeth Calvert is prominent attorney at a large Savannah law firm, and John Calvert is the President of several businesses located in Harbour Town. They have a part-time residence in Atlanta, GA. The couple has been declared legally dead.
Dennis Gerwing, the last person to have seen the Calvert's alive, killed himself after being named a person of interest early in the investigation. Beaufort County Sheriff deputies believe the Calvert's were going to confront Gerwing about missing money from their accounts, when they went missing. He left a handwritten note on the sink admitting sole responsibility for the approximately $2 million he defrauded from Club Group clients, including the Calverts.
