FBI says it has found missing Va teen’s cell phone

LOVINGSTON, Va. — The FBI says investigators have recovered the cell phone of a Nelson County teenager who has been missing since early last month.

The federal agency said Tuesday that it has been able to positively identify one of the phones recovered as part of the investigation as belonging to 17-year-old Alexis Murphy.

Officials did not provide any other details about when or where the phone was found.

Murphy was last seen Aug. 3 by her family. Her car was found in the parking lot of a multiplex in Charlottesville three days later.

Forty-eight-year-old Randy Allen Taylor has been held without bond since his Aug. 11 arrest in Murphy’s disappearance. He has maintained his innocence.

A grand jury is set to meet Sept. 24 to decide whether or not to indict Taylor.
