The man was seen going in and out of the complex alone several times between Feb 16-18 and carrying a large bag, according to Kansai Telecasting, a local TV station.

According to the sources, the missing woman left her office in Sanda on February 15 and told a friend she planned to meet an American she became acquainted with through an SNS site. Local media said the woman was a 27-year-old office worker from Sanda City.

Additional evidence being reported by Japanese news outlets includes surveillance footage showing the woman near the apartment building. The police have not officially released the name of the suspect, though it has been widely reported in the Japanese news media. She was reported missing when she was unable to be contacted or located after her mobile phone died.

The police are set to serve a fresh arrest warrant on the man for the disposal and damaging of a body.

Investigative sources have confirmed that four or five other women arrived at the Higashinari residence while the suspect resided there, according to Fuji News Network (Feb. 25).
