Fort Worth Police Department | Shuttershock

A grand jury has indicted a man in the disappearance of his 25-year-old girlfriend.

Christopher Revill, 33, has been charged with kidnapping Typhenie Johnson on Oct. 10 with the intent to terrorize.

Johnson was last seen outside the Post Oak East Apartments on Tristan Lane in east Fort Worth where witnesses said the two were seen arguing and there were signs of a struggle.

The indictment added Revill either intended to kill Johnson or intended to hide after her murder and withheld knowledge and evidence of that event, but it didn't indict her in her presumed death.

A trial date has not yet been set.

In October, Johnson's family asked for the FBI to assist in the search for Johnson. So far, she has not been found.

Revill, according to the indictment, has a criminal history that includes felony convictions of burglary.

Though he's never been charged, Revill has also been accused by the family of Taalibah Islam of having a hand in their daughter's 2006 disappearance.

Islam and Revill were dating when she disappeared. Hadiyah Islam, Taalibah's sister, said Revill was abusive toward her sister.

Fort Worth police said in October Johnson's disappearance is casting a new light on the Islam case from 2006. They say there was no mention of foul play in that case at the time, but that they would take a closer look.

Anyone with information in either case is asked to call the Fort Worth police at 817-392-4000.
