Arrest made in cold case of Searcy man missing for nearly 23 years

SEARCY, Ark. (KTHV) - An arrest has been made nearly 23 years later after a Searcy man went missing in 1994.

On September 30, 1994, 20-year-old Jarrod Green got a call to meet up with friends in Searcy. Several days later, his car was found in a Walmart parking lot. His keys were found on the floor board of his vehicle.

Then on Wednesday, May 10, the Searcy Police Department in conjunction with the U.S. Marshals arrested 41-year-old Brandon Wheeler. They have charged him with capital murder and abuse of a corpse.

Authorities presume that Green is dead.

Wheeler is currently in custody at the Jefferson County Jail in Ohio until he can be extradited to Arkansas.

Officers say the case is still under investigation.
