A man has been arrested in connection with the disappearance of a Pauls Valley girl, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation reported.

Tanner Washington, 24, was arrested Thursday night in Del City. He was arrested on a first-degree murder warrant out of Pontotoc County, OSBI reported.

The arrest is in connection with the missing person's case of 17-year-old Faith Lindsey.

“We've been following a lot of leads and getting a lot of information about this case,” said Brook Arbeitman with the OSBI.  “Ultimately, we ended up with enough probable cause from the DA, and the judge sounded off on a first-degree murder arrest warrant.”

Lindsey, of Pauls Valley, was last seen Oct. 29 and was last known to be in Konawa in Seminole County, the OSBI reported in November. 

That same month, Washington was charged with obstructing for allegedly lying about Lindsey's whereabouts. 

OSBI is still offering a $5,000 reward for information concerning this case.

Investigators think Lindsey was killed and they are looking for her body, OSBI reported.

“We want to find her for her family and friends and loved ones who are missing her,” said Arbeitman.

Anyone with information about Lindsey's whereabouts or anyone with information about the case is asked to call OSBI at 800-522-8017 or email at
