Johnson was arrested by detectives from the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office and agents with the U.S. Marshal's Service in Putnam County, Payne said.

Investigators coordinated Johnson's arrest after a Grand Jury indicted him Monday. He had been named a person of interest in Ware's disappearance in June of 2011.

Rebecca Ware was last seen October 29, 2010 in St. Johns County.  Detectives have been investigating her disappearance since then.
