    Alissa Turney (17) missing since May 2001

    I thought we had a thread on this, but I can't find anything.

    Nearly two decades after 17-year-old Alissa Turney disappeared, Phoenix police have arrested the man believed to be responsible for her death.

    Her stepfather Michael Turney was arrested Thursday afternoon in Mesa, Arizona. He faces second-degree murder charges.

    "I'm shaking and I'm crying. We did it," Sarah Turney, Alissa's sister, posted on social media. "He's been arrested ... Never give up hope that you can get justice. It took almost 20 years but we did it."

    Michael Turney, 72, made his first court appearance Friday where a judge denied him a reduction in bond. He is due back in court next Friday.

    Alissa Turney disappeared in May 2001, the last day of her junior year at Paradise Valley High School in Phoenix.

    Police believed something was wrong because she left behind her cellphone, her hairbrush and makeup and never touched any of the $1,800 in her bank account.

    Authorities also found surveillance equipment inside her house, which her stepfather admitted to setting up, for what he claimed to be safety reasons and not to spy on his children. Police also found all inbound and outbound calls were passively recorded.

    In an interview with police, one friend said that Alissa had told him her stepfather had tried sexually abusing her when she was younger.

    Turney denied that allegation, denied that he harmed Alissa in any way and said he had nothing to do with her disappearance.

    In 2009, Michael Turney told ABC News he returned home the day she disappeared to discover she had left a note and said he immediately began looking for her. Her stepfather also said he got a call from her a week later, which would have been the last known contact.

    Sarah also spoke to ABC News in 2009, at the time standing by her father's innocence. But in recent years, she has worked to raise awareness about what she's concluded to be her father's guilt, posting on social media with #JusticeforAlissa and working on her podcast, "Voices for Justice."

    During the press conference, officials credited Alissa's sister, Sarah, for her perseverance in this case.

    Phoenix cold case: Stepdad arrested in 2001 disappearance of Alissa Turney

    PHOENIX (KNXV) -- Officials have made an arrest in the cold case of Alissa Turney, a 17-year-old girl who went missing in 2001.

    The Maricopa County Attorney's Office announced second-degree murder charges against Alissa's stepfather, Michael Roy Turney, according to a press conference Thursday.

    Alissa went missing at the end of the school year in 2001 and was first reported as a runaway by Michael Turney, who called in a runaway report, telling authorities Alissa had left a note saying she was going to California.

    In 2008, officials began a criminal investigation into Alissa's disappearance, and officials conducted 200 interviews with coworkers, friends, and family. Authorities conducting a search warrant on Michael Turney's residence discovered a bombing plot. Turney admitted that he illegally possessed 26 pipe bombs. Turney took a plea deal and served 10 years in prison in the bombing plot, unrelated to Alissa's disappearance.

    Turney was arrested Thursday afternoon by police in Mesa in connection to her presumed death. Police did not release further details in the case. Alissa's missing person case remains open until "recovery is made," according to officials.

    I can't be the only one out here, I'm just not. Don't worry about it. Mind your fucking business.

    There was a video her sister posted of Alissa saying "dad's a pervert" and then the dad throws a shoe at her and tells her sister to turn off the camera. It was very weird.
