OKLAHOMA CITY -

Two more people are now behind bars after the disappearance of a teen who police think is the victim of a homicide. Haylie Gonzalez was last seen more than a month ago.

Gonzelez, 17, was last seen on Fourth of July at a party and she was with friends at Eduardo Bonilla-Lopez's home, according to reports.

Investigators said she reached out to a friend that night and asked for a ride. She reportedly sounded scared, but when her friend arrived, she was gone.

Records show Bonilla-Lopez called a friend via FaceTime and asked for help dumping a body. Gonzalez was seen in the background, bleeding from the head.

Bonilla-Lopez was later arrested for first-degree murder and kidnapping. Police continue looking for where Gonzalez's body had been placed.

After he was arrested, investigators were able to find recordings between Bonilla-Lopez and his sister, Lilian Bonilla, according to new court documents. During that conversation, Bonilla-Lopez told Bonilla where the weapon he used was located, according to court documents. He then gave her directions of "how to dispose of the firearm."

Bonilla reportedly told him she and their father, Vidal Bonilla-Jeres, disposed of the gun. The affidavit also stated Bonilla-Lopez and Bonilla talked by "using code words."

Bonilla-Lopez told Bonilla where Gonzalez's body was located and "advised she was not buried."

Bonilla reportedly told Bonilla-Lopez she "took care of it," according to court documents.

Bonilla-Lopez's father was interviewed and told investigators that Bonilla had brought him a pistol. He said he gave it to another person, but the gun has still not been found.

Both Bonilla and Bonilla-Jeres were booked in the Oklahoma County jail.

There have been several searches throughout the metro for Gonzalez's body, but police still have not found her.
