Authorities announced Thursday an arrest in an unsolved case from more than 20 years ago.

Searcy police say Brandon Wheeler, 41, of Weatherford, Texas, was arrested in the case of Jarrod Green, who was 20-years-old when he went missing September 30, 1994. Green's vehicle was found parked at the Searcy Walmart several days later but he was never found. Green was later presumed dead.

With assistance from the U.S. Marshal Service, Wheeler was arrested Wednesday and charged with capital murder and abuse of a corpse.

Wheeler is in jail in Jefferson County, Ohio, awaiting extradition.
