Relatives of a missing woman in Pennsylvania accused her ex-boyfriend of sending sexually explicit photos of the woman to her younger sister, who is a minor, WPXI reported Monday.

Michael Manno, 46, was charged with “corruption of minors” along with other offenses after he sent an explicit photo of Kaylene Oehling, the missing woman, to the 17-year-old sister, according to WPXI.

Oehling has been missing since January 2020, according to local CBS affiliate KDKA. Police reportedly say she was at a friend’s house in the Pittsburgh area the night before she went missing, and that her disappearance is considered suspicious. There are suspects in the case. At the time of her disappearance, Oehling was 20 years old.

Police arrested Manno over the explicit photo that was sent via Facebook, which family believe depicted Oehling before her disappearance, according to WPXI. Paul Young, Oehling’s uncle, told KDKA that Manno has previously sent explicit images to the woman’s father, and that Manno’s actions were “like a taunt.”

“I think it’s absolutely disgusting, and it shows the caliber of person that he is,” Young said. (RELATED: Missing Woman Reportedly Said ‘If Anything Happened’ To Her, It Was Her Husband)

Oehling’s family is still searching for answers in her disappearance. In January, they hosted a vigil at a baseball field on the one-year mark of Oehling’s disappearance, according to KDKA. Oehling’s sister said her family believes someone knows something about how and why she vanished

“Even if you’re scared of whoever did this, you have to come forward,” she told KDKA in January.
