Update: Arrest made in case of missing Seattle-area teen Kathy Chou

In April, I mentioned missing Renton, WA teen Kathy Chou, who disappeared more than a year ago.

Today, I received news that Renton police have made an arrest in the case. Via the Seattle Times:

Renton police have arrested a 22-year-old man in connection with the disappearance and presumed slaying of a Renton woman, who has been missing for more than a year.

Kathy Chou was last seek on April 18, 2010, when she was 19. Her remains have not been found, but detectives have linked an acquaintance to her slaying, according to Renton police.

The suspect was booked into the King County Jail just before midnight Wednesday. He is expected have a bail hearing Thursday afternoon.

The Renton Police Department is asking that anyone who may have information on the case to contact them at 425-430-7534.

Chou, who was a senior at Lindbergh High School, was last seen going for a walk, then later sent her father a text message saying she was at Southcenter Mall.

The Times’s Christine Clarridge mentioned Kathy’s case in her May profile of Marizela’s disappearance here.

Our hearts and prayers go out to the Chou family. With Marizela’s disappearance now passed the four-month mark, we know the pain and agony the Chous have gone through and we are heartened to see law enforcement following through on this case of a missing teenage girl in the Pacific Northwest. The Chous’ experience has taught us:

Every lead matters. Family input is critical. Public vigilance is vital.

Please don’t forget the missing when the national media spotlight fades…
