    TWENTYNINE PALMS, Calif. (CBS 8) - The alleged lover of a missing Marine wife was arrested after an extensive search ended in the discovery of the woman's body in a mine shaft several miles from Twentynine Palms.

    Authorities located the body of Erin Corwin, 19, about 140 feet below ground Saturday afternoon using video equipment and recovered it early Sunday evening. A forensic odontologist positively identified the body at 9:30 p.m. Sunday.

    According to the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department, Corporal Christopher Brandon Lee, 24, was arrested in Anchorage, Alaska late Sunday night for Corwin's murder.

    Family members are asking for help from the public to locate 19-year-old Erin Corwin, who has been missing from her home on board the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center since 7 a.m. Saturday, June 28.

    According to information provided by the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, Corwin’s husband reported her missing on Sunday, June 29. Corwin is reported to be three months pregnant, according to the sheriff’s department.

    According to her sister-in-law, DeeAnna Heavilin, Corwin left in her 2013 Toyota Corolla on her way to Joshua Tree National Park and has not been seen or heard from since... The vehicle, she said, later, was found on Valle Vista Road.

    She's described as 5-foot-2 with light brown hair. She was last seen about 7am Saturday morning.

    Her sister tells KMIR NEWS that Corwin was apparently on her way to Joshua Tree National Park to look for a campsite for a future trip there.

    The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department and Joshua Tree National Park Rangers began an extensive search by air and on the ground. The San Bernardino Sheriff's Homicide Detail was also called in to assist with the investigation.

    I hope the judge rules in prosecution's favor to allow that evidence in. Praying for justice for Erin, Truthbeknown and all of the family.

    About to head into court. Will tweet updates every chance I get. #ErinCorwin


    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 2h 2 hours ago

    Expecting a marathon court hearing, all day today and likely tomorrow.


    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 2h 2 hours ago

    Lee is now in court. He has long hair and a scruffy beard. No longer high and tight. In shackles. Hearing about to start. #ErinCorwin


    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 2h 2 hours ago

    First witness is Jon Corwin, husband of #ErinCorwin. He's now out of the Marines, training to be a welder in Tennessee.


    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 1h 1 hour ago

    Jon Corwin says Chris Lee was his friend, until he discovered the affair. When #ErinCorwin vanished, that friendship was rebuilding.


    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 1h 1 hour ago

    The day after #ErinCorwin vanished, Jon Corwin and 30 Marines searched J-Tree for her. They found nothing.

    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 1h 1 hour ago

    On the day of her disappearance, #ErinCorwin's internet search history shows she was looking at homes in Alaska. Chris Lee is from Alaska.

    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 1h 1 hour ago

    The last time Jon saw #Erin Corwin: 7am, she was headed to J-Tree Park. "I told her I loved her. She gave me a kiss and then she left.

    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 1h 1 hour ago

    Jon Corwin says he was unaware that #ErinCorwin's affair was continuing. Prosecutor: "Were you and Erin trying to work it out?" Jon: "Yes."

    #ErinCorwin's text about trip with Chris Lee: "“He said the location is only half the surprise ... He’s not sure how I’m going to react.”

    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 58m 58 minutes ago

    Jessica Tretham is now reading texts #ErinCorwin sent shortly before she vanished. Final words to a close friend.

    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 1h 1 hour ago

    Jessica Trentham has a soft voice, classic southern accent. Seems nervous. Not surprising; court testimony can be terrifying. #ErinCorwin

    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 1h 1 hour ago

    Jessica Trentham knew that #ErinCorwin was suppose to go hunting with Chris Lee on the day of her disappearance. That was a big clue.

    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 1h 1 hour ago

    Next witness is Jessica Trentham, a friend of #ErinCorwin. She was key to the case against Chris Lee, because she knew about the affair.

    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 1h 1 hour ago

    Jon Corwin cross examination was light. Mostly questions about vehicles, the first day of the search. His testimony is over #ErinCorwin

    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 1h 1 hour ago

    The day after #ErinCorwin vanished, Jon Corwin and 30 Marines searched J-Tree for her. They found nothing.

    Trentham says #ErinCorwin said that, although the desert trip was a special day, it was also a hunting trip, so Chris Lee will bring his gun

    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 38m 38 minutes ago

    Again, cross-examination is very soft. Mostly about how text messages work. Second witness is done. #ErinCorwin.

    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 50m 50 minutes ago

    This testimony is surreal. Via text message, #ErinCorwin is describing being lured out into the desert, clueless. @MyDesert

    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 52m 52 minutes ago

    #ErinCorwin, in texts: “It apparently takes two hours just to get there. A long slow drive. Good talking time, though.”

    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 53m 53 minutes ago

    Witness, describing conversation: “Basically, I asked if it possibly could be an engagement ring. … She said maybe. With a lot of !!!!!."

    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 53m 53 minutes ago

    Witness, reading texts: “I seriously don’t know why he would drag me to a very special place … for a dumb surprise." #ErinCorwin

    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 56m 56 minutes ago

    #BREAKING Text messages reveal #ErinCorwin thought Chris Lee was taking her into the desert to propose. Police think he killed her instead.

    During cross examination, witness admits she can't remember many of the details of that coyote conversation. Just what Chris Lee said.

    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 13m 13 minutes ago

    Witness, a neighbor, says Chris Lee spoke about hiding bodies multiple times. "More times than I can account." #ErinCorwin

    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 13m 13 minutes ago

    Witness says Chris Lee said he would dig a hole, then put a coyote corpse on top of the body to mislead search parties. #erincorwin

    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 15m 15 minutes ago

    Witness says Chris Lee often spoke about killing. "He said he had the perfect way to hide a body. That he could easily kill somebody."

    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 21m 21 minutes ago

    Neighbor says she once walked in on #ErinCorwin and Chris Lee kissing. Told Lee's wife, Nicole, months later.

    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 23m 23 minutes ago

    Next witness is a neighbor of the Lees and Corwins. Didn't catch her name. It was like letter soup.

    Another witness says Chris Lee told him he was going to "blow up a mine shaft" with a propane tank. #ErinCorwin was found in a mine shaft.

    On the day she disappeared, Marine wife Erin Corwin texted a friend that she thought Christopher Brandon Lee was going to propose to her in the High Desert.

    "'He said the location is only half the surprise ... He's not sure how I'm going to react,'" Corwin's text message to Tretham read.

    "Basically, I asked if it possibly could be an engagement ring," Tretham told those in court. "She said 'Maybe.' With a lot of exclamation points."

    Now hearing testimony from Deputy Danny Millan, who first responded to #ErinCorwin's disappearance.


    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 1m 1 minute ago

    Millan testifies that Chris Lee denied knowing #ErinCorwin. That is far from what others have said, that they were friends and lovers.

    Brett Kelman ‏@TDSbrettkelman 10m10 minutes ago

    #BREAKING Testimony about propane tank ties Chris Lee to mine shaft where #ErinCorwin's body was found. Lee may have tried to blow it up.

    Brett Kelman ‏@TDSbrettkelman 12m12 minutes ago

    Official just testified that they found a propane tank in the mine shaft with #ErinCorwin's body.


    Brett Kelman @TDSbrettkelman 3m 3 minutes ago

    Chris Lee court hearing is breaking for lunch. Testimony resumes at 1:30 p.m. I will be here. #ErinCorwin

    Thank you for the recap. wow, just wow.
    Never assume you know anything... or everything... about a missing person, a POI or the details of a case. (paraphrasing great advice from trackergd Holly Grim thread).

    I have learned that people tend to believe, hold onto and investigate off whatever a witness, a suspect, friend or family says...People lie.
    Think outside the box.
