PORTLAND, Ore. -- The person of interest in the disappearance of a Salem woman and her 3-year-old son has been arrested in Portland by Salem detectives just before 2 p.m. on Friday, police said.
Michael John Wolfe, 52, of Gaston has been charged with two counts of aggravated murder and kidnapping after Karissa Alyn Fretwell, 25, and William Fretwell disappeared earlier this month.
However, no bodies have been found. Police said the charges do not mean that Karissa and William are dead, and Wolfe's charges can be changed if they are found alive. He is believed to be the biological father of Karissa's child.
There are no other suspects or persons of interest in the case.
Wolfe will be booked into the Yamhill County Jail.
Meanwhile, the search for Karissa and William continues in rural Yamhill County. If you have information, contact Salem police at 503-588-8477.
