Police are examining clothing found over the weekend by volunteers helping to 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. Lab results and other leads in the investigation will help determine whose clothing was found, he said.
Police plan to resume their search today for Johnson, who was last seen on Oct. 10 with her ex-boyfriend at the Post Oak East apartments in far east Fort Worth, near Texas 360 and Trinity Boulevard.
The ex-boyfriend, Christopher Revill, was arrested Tuesday and faces kidnapping charges.
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.”
