An arrest has been made in the disappearance of Alexis Murphy, but the missing Virginia teen still hasn't been located. This indicates that she could captive somewhere awaiting rescue -- if possible -- or she could already be dead. The latter is the most statistically common outcome in cases such as these, but without more details it's hard to speculate with any success.
Officials are not releasing the name of the person arrested in this case, due to the need to maintain solidarity in this ongoing investigation. It should be noted that even though someone has been arrested, officials are still requesting the help of the public in locating Alexis. This is not a good sign at all.
It's at least fortunate that her alleged kidnapper has been arrested, but without Alexis, how will officials prove this person had anything to do with her disappearance. There is apparently enough evidence that they are not discussing with the public, but it's still perplexing that Alexis hasn't been found. Hopefully this case has a happy ending, but it just doesn't feel like that will happen.
