CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

A Chesterfield doctor is under arrest, accused of child neglect. The child's mother, Zulma Pabon, has been missing for more than a year.

Police arrested 38-year-old John Gibbs and charged him with two counts of felony child neglect.

Police say the investigation indicates he neglected his five-year-old son. But that's all we know about the charges at this point.

The mother of that five-year-old and a nurse, Zulma Pabon, disappeared in 2014. She was last seen leaving work at St. Francis Hospital in June of that year.

Police have released a timeline of Pabon's disappearance and part of that included surveillance photos of John Gibbs walking back to the home that he and Zulma shared, just minutes after her car was seen leaving.

That car was later found abandoned at a mobile home park. It's important to note Gibbs has not been called a suspect in Pabon's disappearance.

Police have told us Thursday's charges are not related to Pabon's investigation. Gibbs is being held without bond.
