Adams could not confirm any evidence that was found, but he did confirm that Giles is a person of interest in regard to the disappearance of 43-year-old Jilly Todaro, who has been missing since December 2020.

Giles and Todaro were in a relationship at the time of her disappearance, Adams said.

Giles is currently facing charges of terroristic threats, harassment and disorderly conduct charges.

He is confined to the Cambria County Prison with bail set at 10 percent of $10,000. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for May 25.
