Ex-Boyfriend Suspected of Kidnapping as Search Continues for Missing Texas Woman

Posted on

The ex-boyfriend of a missing Texas woman is behind bars this week, suspected in her kidnapping, PEOPLE confirms.

Christopher Revill, 32, was taken into custody on Tuesday afternoon, according to a police spokesman in Fort Worth, Texas. His arrest came one day after ex-girlfriend Typhenie Johnson, 25, vanished from an apartment complex.

Revill was detained on suspicion of kidnapping and is being held on $50,000 bond, according to the police spokesman. He was additionally charged with violating the terms of his parole, jail records confirm.

It was not immediately clear if Revill has retained an attorney. He has not appeared in court on the kidnapping accusation or entered a plea to the parole violation charges.

Detectives allege Johnson was last seen with Revill, according to the police spokesman, who declined to comment on what police have learned about the couple’s former relationship.

A search of the parking lot outside the apartment complex where Johnson was last seen turned up the missing woman’s sock, phone and car keys, the spokesman says.

Johnson remains missing, but police did not comment further.

Revill had prior convictions for both burglary and aggravated robbery, serving brief stints in prison, local law enforcement sources tell PEOPLE. He was most recently paroled in July 2015.

Police say Johnson was wearing a pink shirt with black and white pants when she was last seen. She is 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 135 pounds.

Her family has asked for privacy, police tell PEOPLE.

Anyone with information about Johnson’s whereabouts is asked to call Fort Worth police at 817-392-4430 or 817-335-4222.
