Police are examining several items of clothing found by volunteers over the weekend who were helping in the search for Typhenie Johnson, 25, of Fort Worth, who went missing one week ago.
The clothing was found in a wooded area near Sandy Lane north of Lake Arlington, Fort Worth police spokesman Daniel Segura said. Determining who owns the clothes will depend on lab results and other leads in the investigation, he said.
Police planned to resume their search today for Johnson, who was last seen Monday night with her ex-boyfriend at the Post Oak East apartments in far east Fort Worth, near Texas 360 and Trinity Boulevard.
Her ex-boyfriend, Christopher Revill, was arrested Tuesday and faces kidnapping charges.
The family continued the search on their own Saturday afternoon starting in the area of Trinity Boulevard and Texas 360 after police suspended their search late Friday. They held a candlelight vigil for Saturday night at Post Oak Village Park in Euless.
Two volunteers in the family-led search came across the items of clothing in the Lake Arlington-area Sunday afternoon, CBS 11 reported.
Family, volunteers and police officers have searched more than 400 acres around Johnson’s apartment and Sandy Lane Park, an area surrounding Revill’s residence in the 7500 block of Calmar Court in Fort Worth.
Johnson’s mother, Deborah Johnson Stub, spoke to reporters Saturday and thanked Fort Worth police, volunteers who have been helping with the search, and people who have been supportive on social media.
“We are very, very grateful,” she said. “We just want to bring her home. Hopefully, we’ll find Typhenie and we’ll find her safe.”
