FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) - The search for missing Fort Worth woman Typhenie Johnson, 25, took a new turn when police found evidence in the backyard of kidnapping suspect Christopher Revill, 32.

Johnson was last seen with Revill, who's her ex-boyfriend. He was arrested Tuesday afternoon on suspicion of kidnapping, according to jail records.

A witness told police they saw Rivell's car backed into the grass next to the apartment building with the trunk lid up. Police later matched tire tracks in the grass to Rivell's car.

When police went to the house where Rivell lives they found a woman's bra with a broken clasp, a ladies shirt and a smart watch with a broken clasp.

Rivell told a witness he saw Johnson get into a car with someone he didn't know. Rivell said he doesn't know Johnson's whereabouts and denied backing up his car next to the apartment complex.

For a Fort Worth family, his story is eerily similar to what happened when a family member disappeared a decade ago in an unsolved missing person case involving Revill as well.

"It's the same thing that happened," said Hadiyah Islam whose sister was reported missing in 2006. "It's the same story that happened, you know, so many years ago with my sister! And he's telling the exact same story which is she got into the car with someone else after they had the argument, you know?"
The last time the Islam family saw Taalibah Islam was in January 2006. And they say the last person they saw her with was Christopher Revill. And, just like in the missing person case of Johnson, Revill is on record with police saying the last time he saw Islam she was getting into a car with someone he didn't know.
"He called crying saying she's not here anymore she's not here anymore," Islam recalled.  "And I said, 'Well where is she?' And he said, 'She left. And I haven't seen her since'."
Police verify Revill filed a missing report with police but could not say if he was a suspect or person of interest in the unsolved case.
Hadiyah Islam said Revill had a baby boy with her sister. The boy is now ten years old and has been raised by an aunt.
When asked if she thinks Revill murdered her sister, Islam took a deep breath and responded softly, "Yes."

Johnson was wearing a pink shirt with black and white pants when she was last seen, according to police. She stands about five feet, four inches tall and weighs 135 pounds.

Anyone with information is asked to call Fort Worth police at 817.392.4430 or 817.335.4222.
