FWPD end search for missing woman, set to resume Monday

Search for missing Fort Worth woman

FORT WORTH -- Christopher Revill, arrested by police for kidnapping, has now had two ex-girlfriends who have gone missing in the span of 10 years.

Revill is now in jail.  Police believe he kidnapped his ex-girlfriend Typhenie Johnson, who has been missing for five days. 

According to a police affidavit, Johnson went missing after she was seen talking to her Revill and telling him their relationship "was over."  Revill later told a witness that Johnson had "left with someone," according to the affidavit.

"The story he said, 'She just got in the car and she left,' and I was like, 'Ding!' that's what he told us," said Hadiyah Islam.

Hadiyah is the sister of Taalibah Islam, who she said was dating Christopher Revill 10 years ago when she went missing.  The couple had a child together, but then he started to hit Taalibah, her sister recalled.

"Once the relationship became abusive, he was not allowed around us," she said.

Taalibah continued the relationship, and the last time her family saw her was when she was leaving with her son to stay at Revill's home for a few days.

"Four days later, I get a phone call say, like, she's not here anymore.  And I'm like, 'Well, where is she?'  And he's like, 'I don't know, she's just not here,'" Hadiyah recalled.

She said Revill dropped his son off with her family, and they haven't heard from him since.  He never helped in the search for Taalibah, and while the family did not initially suspect him, they now believe he was involved in her disappearance.

"For her to leave and leave her son, I didn't believe it," Hadiyah said.  "He had to have done something."

In the 10 years since, Revill was in and out of prison on multiple convictions, including burglary and aggrevated robbery.  He was last released on parole in July 2015.  Six months later, he started dating Typhenie Johnson.

Today, Johnson's family and police are still actively searching for her.

Hadiyah Islam believes Revill hurt her sister.  Now, she fears, he may have done it again.

"I think he should have been locked up a long time ago," she said.  "It's the same thing, just a different girl, but it's the same thing."
