Missing Texas Woman's Ex-Boyfriend Had a Previous Girlfriend Who Also Vanished
A Texas man suspected of kidnapping his ex-girlfriend, who went missing earlier this month, reported a previous girlfriend missing
A Texas man suspected of kidnapping his ex-girlfriend, who went missing earlier this month, reported a previous girlfriend missing 10 years ago, PEOPLE confirms.
Christopher Revill, 32, called 911 in 2006 to file a missing person report for his then-girlfriend, Taalibah Islam, according to police records.
Authorities believe Islam — who is still missing — was last seen alive by Revill in 2006. He denies having anything to do with her disappearance.
According to police records, Revill told detectives in 2006 that Islam left him, vanishing without a trace.
Revill and Islam have a child together, a son, who is now 10 years old. Revill dropped the boy off with Islam’s family soon after she went missing, and they haven’t heard from him since, they told NBC DFW.
Revill was arrested on Oct. 11 in connection with the disappearance of another ex, 25-year-old Typhenie Johnson, and charged with suspicion of kidnapping, according to records. She was last seen leaving an apartment complex in Fort Worth, Texas.
Police told NBC DFW that nothing had linked Revill to Islam’s disappearance, but since his arrest, “That investigation is going in a different direction.”

Not long after Revill’s arrest in Johnson’s disappearance, police conducted a search of his home and found a broken bra clasp and a damaged smart watch, according to charging documents.
Revill has denied knowing where Johnson could be or what may have happened to her, according to arrest records. He has not entered a plea and does not have an attorney on file, according to court officials.
Johnson is still missing and was last seen wearing a pink shirt with black and white pants. She is 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 135 pounds.
Attempts Tuesday to reach relatives of Islam and Johnson were unsuccessful.
But Islam’s sister, Hadiyah, told NBC DFW, “I still think about my sister, and I know [Johnson’s family is] thinking about their sister.”
