Whipple was taken into custody Saturday at about 6 p.m. for absconding probation and, among other charges, receiving stolen property and drinking under the influence, Budge added.
He is being held on $250,000 bond, according to the Cache County Sheriff’s Office’s website.
Whipple has not been formally arrested in connection with Elizabeth’s disappearance, but Budge told ABC News authorities are “pretty confident” he had something to do with it. A burner phone Whipple was allegedly using was among the evidence found at the girl’s home, allegedly linking him to her disappearance, according to Budge.
Elizabeth’s parents reported the incident to police at 10 a.m. Saturday.
