Authorities have identified the suspect arrested in the case of a missing Nelson County teenager case.

Nelson County Commonwealth's Attorney Anthony Martin says Randy Allen Taylor was taken into custody Sunday in connection with the disappearance of 17-year-old Alexis Murphy of Lovingston.

Court records show Taylor is charged with abduction by force, which is a felony. The 48-year-old remains in jail without bond.

During a news conference at the Lovingston Fire Department on Monday, the FBI and local authorities said the investigation and search for Murphy continues. They did not take questions from the media.

Murphy was last seen Aug. 3 by her family. Her car was found in the parking lot of a multiplex in Charlottesville three days later.
