RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) – The man named a "person on interest" in the disappearance of Tameka Claiborne surrendered to police around 9:30 Friday morning. He was with an attorney.

28-year-old Michael Solomon is now behind bars at Richmond City Jail. During a press conference, Richmond Police announced that Solomon is now facing two charges --none are in connection to the disappearance of Claiborne.

After being interviewed by investigators Solomon was arrested and charged with failure to pay child support and a weapons violation.

"There's no immediate link to these charges and what's happened in the last day or two but that could change," said Richmond Assistant Police Chief, Dave McCoy.

On Tuesday, Solomon's girlfriend, Tameka Claiborne disappeared -- that's the same day her three year old son, Malik, was found wandering in Chesterfield.

Although Solomon is behind bars police are still looking for his vehicle. It's a 2006 Chevy Malibu with Virginia plate number XTU 2530. The vehicle was spotted in Hopewell on Wednesday.

"We're going to do everything we can with assisting agencies to locate that vehicle and collect more evidence," said McCoy.

Claiborne's family members and friends are reacting to these latest developments.

During a phone conversation the father of her child, Hasaan Ellison told NBC12 "This ain't right. I want justice."

On social networking sites like facebook and twitter Claiborne's cousin wrote, "Please say it ain't so. Dear god why -- this has to be a bad dream."

Richmond Sheriff's Office says Solomon is in a cell by himself tonight. He's being held without bond.
