AURORA, Colo. — Aurora police have arrested a man in connection to the 2018 disappearance of his 87-year-old ex-wife.

Kyo Miller, 87, was first reported missing on Dec. 15, 2018, but police did not notify the pubic until Feb. 7, 2019. At the time, police said her disappearance was suspicious, but couldn't elaborate due to the investigation.

According to Matthew Longshore with the Aurora Police Department, Kyo's ex-husband Eldred Southworth Miller, 72, was arrested Tuesday on charges of financial exploitation, theft, identity theft and criminal impersonation. Longshore said these charges are the result of a missing person investigation. No other details were available regarding Eldred's arrest or the reasoning behind it.

The missing person case is still open, Longshore said.

In February 2019, neighbors told Denver7 that Kyo had been missing well before Dec. 15. One neighbor who didn't want to be identified said they hadn't seen Kyo for more than a year.

She had been living with Eldred, and his current wife, Galyna Miller, 53, at the time, according to Aurora police.
