LYON COUNTY, Nev. (KLAS) — Officials with the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office said they have taken a man into custody in connection with the disappearance of 18-year-old Naomi Irion.
Troy Driver, 41, of Fallon, faces one charge of kidnapping, officials said.
Deputies said they impounded a pickup truck possibly involved in Irion’s kidnapping.
Irion has not been located. She was last seen around 5 a.m. on March 12 walking through a Walmart parking lot in Fernley.
Fernley is in Lyon County, about 400 miles northwest of Las Vegas and 35 miles east of Reno.
Officials had said video surveillance showed a person from a nearby homeless camp lurking near vehicles around the same time of Irion’s disappearance.
The man is then seen getting into Naomi’s car and leaving. Naomi was in the passenger seat at the time, officials said. Officials on Friday did not say if Driver was that man.
