A Peoria woman faces charges in connection with the disappearance of a woman in Georgia seven years ago.

The Porterdale, Ga. police department says Katelyn Goble, 27, of Peoria was arrested on felony charges of concealing a death and tampering with evidence in connection with the 2016 disappearance of 19-year-old Morgan Bauer in the Atlanta area.

Johnathan Alexander Warren was also arrested in Los Angeles for murder, aggravated assault, concealing a death, and a misdemeanor evidence tampering charge in connection with the case.

Bauer disappeared about two weeks after she moved from South Dakota to Georgia. Atlanta police say she worked as an exotic dancer in Gainesville, Ga. for a short time before returning to Atlanta. She was last seen at the Tease strip club on Feb. 25, 2016, and last active on social media on Feb. 29, 2016.
