Former “Bridalplasty” contestant Lisa Marie Naegle disappeared after attending a birthday party in Torrance, California, Los Angeles Police said Tuesday they think she was killed.

Naegle, 36, of San Pedro failed to return home after attending the party Saturday night at the Alpine Village Restaurant.

TMZ reported police were questioning nursing student Jerome Rogers, who was being held on suspicion of murder. Sources told TMZ the two left the restaurant together, but Rogers said they left separately.

TMZ said police were executing a search warrant on Rogers’ property and planned to excavate in search of a body.

Reports said Rogers confessed.

Husband Derek Harryman told KTLA, Los Angeles, said video footage showed her getting into a black SUV early Sunday but she never made it home or to her nursing job.

Harryman returned from work about 2 a.m. Sunday morning, found his wife wasn’t home and texted her to ask where she was.

“Within a minute or two, she called me,” Harryman told the Daily Breeze. “She sounded really, really drunk. She said, ‘I’m going to get some food and then I’ll be home.’ ”

Harryman said he then went to sleep. When he awoke, his wife was not there but he figured she had gone to work. Later, however, he got a call saying she never had shown up.

"Her missing work, her not calling anybody, a million red flags," Harryman told KTLA. He reported her missing Sunday night.

Harryman said he tried to hack into his wife’s cellphone to access the Find My iPhone app because calls were going straight to voicemail.

Naegle’s sister, Danielle Naegle-Kaimoana, said the disappearance was out of character.

"Lisa loves her family, Lisa loves her husband, Lisa checks in and she didn't check in with us," Naegle-Kaimoana told KTLA.

“She’s wild, she’s fun, she’s an outgoing life-of-the-party-girl for sure, but she always comes home and never misses work,” Naegle-Kaimoana told People.

“This is not supposed to happen. You hear of missing people all the time but that is not supposed to happen to your family.”

Naegle competed on the E! reality show “Bridalplasty” in 2010 on which a dozen women competed for a dream wedding and a plastic surgery makeover.
