The Disappearance of Taalibah Islam


Taalibah Islam (20) has been missing since January 16th, 2006. She was last seen in Fort Worth, Texas by her boyfriend and father of her infant son, Christopher Revill. After her disappearance, Revill dropped their 3 month old son off at a relative of Taalibah’s. He said that he and Taalibah got into an argument, and that she got into a vehicle driven by someone he didn’t know and rode away.

Taalibah’s family has long suspected that Revill is responsible for her disappearance. Her family said that Revill had been abusive towards Taalibah in the past, however police found no evidence of this, nor did they find any concrete evidence that linked Revill to Taalibah’s disappearance due to a lack of crime scene.

As years passed with no sign of Taalibah, her family continued to suspect that Revill had killed her. These suspicions were only strengthened over ten years later on October 11th, 2016, when Revill was arrested for kidnapping his new girlfriend—Typhenie Johnson (25). Revill is claiming that he is innocent of these charges. However, when investigators asked Revill what happened to Typhenie, he answered with the exact thing he said about Taalibah ten years ago: that they had gotten into an argument, and she got into a vehicle driven by someone he didn’t know and rode away. A write-up on Typhenie’s case can be found here.

Revill went to trial for kidnapping Typhenie in 2019. He was ultimately found guilty. However, Revill still denies having any involvement in Taalibah’s case, and Taalibah remains missing today. If you have any information that could lead to her whereabouts, please contact the Fort Worth Police Department at 817-392-4442.
