A Southern Kentucky man has been missing for nearly a year, but now, police have made two arrests in connection to the case.

25-year-old Jeremy Johnson vanished last June after leaving a Corbin restaurant.

Johnson's family is offering a reward and has been hoping there would be some break in the case. So far, no body has been found, but now police have charged a man with tampering with physical evidence.

Daniel Grubb, 23, is charged in connection with the case. According to court records, he is accused of moving Jeremy Johnson's body and also doing something with Johnson's 1993 Chevrolet.

Since June, police have combed the Knox and Whitley Counties looking for Johnson but to no avail.

The arrest warrants and citations say that Grubb allegedly took Johnson's car for a strip job. But just where Johnson's body is, remains a mystery.

Police also arrested Bobby Walters, 64, with tampering with physical evidence.

Neither Grubb nor Walters are charged with Johnson's death. The coroners in Whitley and Knox Counties say they have not been able to locate Johnson’s body.
