Jayden Parkinson: Man Charged With Murder
A 22-year-old man has been charged with the murder of Oxfordshire teenager Jayden Parkinson, police have said.
Ben Blakeley, of Christchurch Road, Reading, has also been charged with perverting the course of justice.
He has been remanded in custody to appear at Oxford Magistrates' Court later this morning.
A 17-year-old boy, who was also arrested on suspicion of murder, remains in police custody.
Jayden has been missing for nearly two weeks and is thought to have been killed.
She was last seen leaving Didcot Parkway train station, in Oxfordshire, at 4.27pm on December 3 - and did not return home that evening as planned.
Specialist search teams backed by helicopters and police dogs have continued searching an area of farmland just outside the village of Upton, near Didcot, where they appear to be focusing on a small patch of woodland near the church.
The police's inquiry team has now grown to more than 100 officers as the force tries to discover what has happened to the teenager.
Oxfordshire police commander Superintendent Christian Bunt said officers were also continuing to sift a grassy area of wasteland in the Lydalls Road area of Didcot.
Residential addresses have also been searched and a recycling bin was earlier removed for further examination.
Supt Bunt thanked the public for their help with the inquiry so far, but urged people not to carry out their own searches as these could prove a risk to the ongoing police investigation.
Jayden recently left home in Didcot to live in Oxford.
In a heartfelt plea, her mother Samantha Shrewsbury posted a message on social media site Facebook on Sunday saying: "My baby, my princess, my heart is so heavy, baby girl.
"I just want to see you walk through my door with a 'ta-dar'. I need you little lady, my heart feels so empty without you."
Police have pieced together her movements in the run-up to her disappearance, and believe she walked up Oxford's High Street through the town centre, arriving at the train station at 4.07pm, where she then boarded a train to Didcot.
The very last sighting of her is when she left Didcot train station at about 4.27pm.
