Man charged with kidnapping Fort Worth woman gets attorney

The man charged with kidnapping a Fort Worth woman in October was granted a court appointed attorney on Monday -- but Typhenie Johnson is still missing.

Johnson, 25, disappeared Oct. 10 and Chris Revill was the last person to see her alive. That incident led to the family of another missing Revill ex-girlfriend to remind police about her disappearance. Taalibah Islam hasn't been seen for ten years.

Revill was escorted from jail to magistrate court, but never appeared in open court. Instead, he was questioned under oath in a holding cell.

Witnesses saw Revill and Johnson together talking near Revill's car just minutes before her disappearance. Recently investigators, volunteers and police search dogs scoured hundreds of acres of land looking for Johnson without success.

But the case involving another missing woman connected to Revill has a new status.

Taleeba Islam was also dating Revill when she disappeared in 2006. Her case is now being considered a homicide and no longer a missing person's investigation.

Islam’s family says Revill told a similar story as with Johnson -- that he was with her, but she left in a car with someone he didn't know.

"I kinda feel like she was already gone so many years ago...it's harder than it was before,” Hadiyah Islam said.

Hadiyah says she believes Revill knows where both women are and she says sadly now two families are connected in a way they regret. She has a message for Revill.

"Just give me my sister,” Hadiya Islam said. “We've been without her for almost 11 years. My nephew has been without his mom for almost 11 years."
